Do Greywater Recycling Systems require chemicals?
Maintenance of a greywater recycling system is significantly easier and more cost-effective if the system is complete with an automatic chemical dosing system.
Greywater runoff from showers, bathtubs, and wash basins include naturally occurring biofilm. When left untreated, biofilm can create blockages within the pipework of the greywater recycling system.
Systems which have been designed with long-term operation in mind are supplied with automatic chemical dosing systems. The chemical dosing system will complete an automatic backwash of the pipework within the system to eliminate the risk of blockages. The chemicals are not used to treat the incoming greywater supply, but just the surrounding pipework.
Greywater recycling systems with chemical dosing systems also reduce throwaway culture by eliminating the need for frequent cartridge or filter replacements.
Chemical replacements can be completed by a trained Stormsaver Engineer as part of bi-annual service visits.
