SDS GWOD (Greywater on Demand) is a fully automated system that delivers a consistent supply of treated greywater to meet a site's required daily volume.
Greywater recycling can reduce mains water consumption by up to 40%. Installing a greywater system is a great alternative to traditional sustainable measures, offering an effective solution with no reliance on rainwater. The use of greywater recycling systems also helps to reduce the impact of new developments on already stressed water supply networks.
How does it work?
SDS's GWOD captures the water that has been used for showering or bathing and, after specialised filtration, is fed back into the property for use in non-potable purposes such as flushing toilets, irrigation and laundry. Treatment is such that the membrane provides a fixed barrier to waterborne viruses and pathogens meeting required quality standards.
SDS GWOD operates on a fast treatment principle to meet demand quickly and reduce the need for large water storage tanks. It uses a hollow fibre ultrafiltration membrane incorporating an automatic backwash process, to ensure the highest level of water quality. Through our unparalleled design service, we can tailor a solution that eliminates financial and spatial barriers and delivers the most cost-effective low energy solution for your premises.
To enable a system to be designed, an understanding of water supply, consumption and disposal, along with the number of rooms in the property, is required. These systems are ideally suited to hotels, student accommodation or large residential blocks due to the nature of their water use supply versus demand equilibrium. Ultimately, commercial greywater recycling systems will reduce consumption and improve the efficiency of water use saving money and increasing corporate sustainability.
