Gray Water Pumps

Gray Water Pumps

Greywater (also spelt graywater, grey water and gray water) or sullage is all wastewater generated in households or office buildings from streams without faecal contamination, i.e. all streams except for the wastewater from toilets. Sources of greywater include sinks, showers, baths, clothes washing machines or dishwashers. As greywater contains fewer pathogens than domestic wastewater, it is generally safer to handle and easier to treat and reuse onsite for toilet flushing, landscape or crop irrigation, and other non-potable uses

The application of greywater reuse in urban water systems provides substantial benefits for both the water supply subsystem by reducing the demand for fresh clean water as well as the wastewater subsystems by reducing the amount of wastewater required to be conveyed and treated. Treated greywater has many uses, for example, toilet flushing or irrigation

A pump that is suitable from gray water should be capable of passing hair and other contaminants without causing blockages or becoming snagged to inhibit operation
