What to Look for
When it comes to greywater systems, they will be unique to each home with different requirements.
Before looking you need to consider: where you will be using the greywater, whether it is only for irrigation or for flushing toilets also; whether you want to combine the greywater system with a rainwater system; whether you are retrofitting the system or incorporating it into a new build; how much maintenance the system requires.
Below are some of the top suppliers of greywater systems depending on what exactly you’re looking for.
The Brand: Stormsaver are a company based in Nottinghamshire who want to provide people with sustainably sourced water.
They deliver both rainwater harvesting and greywater systems for commercial or domestic use.
The Product: The Hydraloop is a neat system that can recycle up to 85% of your water for toilet flushing, washing machine use, garden watering and even your swimming pool.
We love the self-contained system which can be both retrofitted or incorporated into a newbuild for households of up to 6 people.
This unit is unique as it is a complete greywater recycling system combining tank, filter, pumps and controls all in one unit. This gives the benefit of a quick installation and the smart machine even links to a smartphone app through wifi.
You do pay slightly more for the modern, compact machine with the price for supply and delivery of a Hydraloop Unit being around £4,500, not including installation, however as mentioned above this should be fairly quick.
The Brand: Aquaco are a Kent based company who provide greywater and rainwater systems. Having worked with both Google and Amazon they are at the forefront of water recycling technology, testing cloud based systems integrated with IoT devices for long term system monitoring.
The Product: If you only want a greywater system you can choose the Aquaco Home Greywater Basic ranging from £2,495 below ground or £2,695 above ground. The greywater system is used to flush the toilet.
Alternatively, you can get the Aquaco Home Combined Basic which combines greywater for flushing the toilet and rainwater for laundry and irrigation. This can range from £4,490 – £7,290, depending on tank size. This is a great option for anyone wanting to maximise efficiency from rainwater and greywater.
Both the greywater system and combined system will require installation. This could be done by a competent DIY-er or you can employ a professional to do the plumbing works.
The Brand: OMDI is a smaller, family run business based in Yorkshire with over 20 years’ experience in the off-main drainage industry.
The Product: OMDI is a great option is you’re looking for purely a garden irrigation system to recycle your greywater. It is likely to be the cheapest and most straight-forward option.
