Aqualoop processes incoming waste greywater through a mesh filter to separate larger debris from the water. Aqualoop incorporates a high-pressure backwashing nozzle to automatically remove debris buildup from the surface of the mesh filter. Unlike other systems available on the market, the high-pressure supply comes directly from the booster set to ensure there is a sufficient supply to fully clean the mesh.
Bioreactor Treatment Tank
The Aqualoop utilises a biological, low-energy treatment process to ensure high levels of water quality. Greywater within the biological treatment tank is subject to a constant supply of oxygen. Growth bodies within the system increase the surface area of the bioreactor tank. Collectively, the oxygen supply and growth bodies create a positive environment for healthy bacteria to grow as part of the natural treatment process.
Aqualoop Greywater Recycling Systems processes all greywater through a patented membrane station to remove bacteria and viruses down to 0.2 microns. The membrane station can be seen here on the image. Membrane stations contain hollow fibres to trap any unwanted particulates before the greywater is boosted into the clean water tank.
Membrane stations within the Aqualoop System are also subject to a thorough backwashing process where an air supply is pushed through the filtres in the reverse direction to remove any excess buildup of contaminants.
Aqualoop uses a small volume of chemical additives to automatically clean pipework within the greywater system. Chemical additives are not used to clean any greywater but remove biofilm from within the pipework which could lead to systems becoming blocked.
Alternative manufacturers do not have an automatic chemical dosing facility; therefore, require this process to be completed manually as part of the planned preventative maintenance program by the end user. Without chemical cleaning, excess biofilm can accumulate in the pipework and cause blockages. It is always advised that chemical cleaning be included in any greywater proposal as standard to protect the system for the long term.
