How Does a Greywater Recycling System Work?

Written by Rebekah Hildebrand

July 30, 2020

Greywater is used bath or shower, sink, and laundry water. More information on greywater can be found here. Greywater is most commonly harvested for use in irrigation. More options for reuse are available after onsite treatment of the water. This is where a greywater recycling system becomes useful.

Greywater Treatment

Aisle of Laundromat Machines

A greywater recycling system effectively treats greywater onsite so that it can be stored for future reuse. Bacteria, viruses, and other pathogens are sterilized and filters remove any large particles. The result is clear, odor-free water that is safe for reuse.

EnviroCleanse Systems greywater recycling systems provide outstanding results for large volume laundry operations such as laundromats and hotels with on premise laundry. Laundry facilities are able to recycle an average of 80 to 90 percent of water. Savings vary depending on the size of the operation. The water lost is a result of multiple factors including evaporation, water remaining on the linens after the wash, and backwashing.

Reuse with Confidence

Our systems reclaim laundry water for filtration and disinfection to remove health hazards before storing in holding tanks for future use in the laundry cycle. Sensors monitor quality and the whole process is controlled by a programmable logic controller (PLC). Pump operation and storage tank levels can be monitored remotely by our technicians as well as key laundry operators.
