Greywater is the water that goes down your kitchen sink, your shower, and your washing machine. It’s lightly contaminated with soap and detergent, which are generally easily filtered out. Filtered and recycled greywater can be used for watering landscaping, flushing toilets, and much more.
A greywater harvesting and filtering systems are especially important in the arid, desert regions of the Southwest. As you know, the ongoing drought is seriously depleting reservoirs all over the west, resulting in water shortages and restrictions. By installing a system to filter and recycle your greywater, you can ensure that your landscaping is maintained in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.
A greywater harvesting system diverts the wastewater from sinks, showers, and washing machines through a filtering system. Solids, bacteria, and viruses are filtered out and sanitized, and the clean water is sent to a holding tank. From there, the water can be used for water landscaping, as well as many other applications.
Hospitality businesses often rely on maintaining lush, beautiful landscaping. Thus, reusing greywater is ideal for businesses such as resorts, golf courses, and shopping malls. The fact that your business is harvesting and reusing greywater is also a good promotional point; many people these days favor businesses that are environmentally and socially responsible.
While installing a greywater filtering system can be costly, over time, it will pay for itself in savings. Not only that, it lets people know that your company cares about the environment.
