Residential Greywater Diversion System
All greywater from showers, bath, basins and laundries is collected in a small DoH WA approved polyethylene tank outside the house. The tank contains an orange high quality stainless steel and cast iron pump which is float activated. When the float rises the greywater is pumped to a 25mm header pipe and then into a subsurface dripper system which feeds the roots of the plants.
Sub surface dripper system coverage can be increased by installing additional dripper lines, valves and solenoids.
Two separate filters and a ball valve keep the system clear of debris such as lint and hair. The system has an Australian Standard main electrical control box with an audible alarm.
A 100mm reflux valve must be fitted to the overflow pipe connecting to the main sewer. This valve is not supplied with the Greywater Diversion Unit.
The Aquarius Greywater System must be installed by a licensed plumber.
The owner must check with Local or State Authority for approval to install.
