Ecogator Advanced 150L Grey Water System

Grey water is made up of bath, shower, bathroom sink and washing machine water, it is not advisable to use your kitchen water as this is damaging to plant life because of the fat content. An average household (family of 4) will use between 200-300 litres of reusable water on a daily basis. The residues, soaps etc in the water in diluted quantities can provide useful sulphates and nitrates which some experts say is more beneficial to the garden than clean tap water.

This system will filter the water and distribute it when and as the tank fills; it will automatically switch off when the tank is empty. The idea behind this system is that the waste water is re-used within 24 hours each day before bacteria can grow in the water. The system will connect flush water via a hose with 2 or 3 sprinkler heads attached. The pump has a running pressure of 3 bar.

The Ecgator Advance is designed to irrigate though an irrigation line and has an 0.73kW external pump.

Table Explanation

The above table is based on an actual study where the average usage of a household was 31 000kl with a Grey water system and the average usage of a household that was 46 000kl that irrigates with municipal water in the Western Cape area.

The tariffs that are shown are standard throughout the Cape Town area and show the savings that are possible. If the irrigation is metered for a period of six months over summer then the saving that is possible would be R1 785.66 over this period. The water usage and disposal charge work on the same usage ie : the more water you use the higher your disposal charge. The figures speak for themselves and show that the average pay back period on a Grey water system would be on average a period of 3 years.
