Below are the systems we currently offer as a package with our waterless toilets. We offer primary treatment systems to suit local council requirements (in Queensland only). See our "Questions About Greywater"
for further information on the right system for your needs.
The reason we promote the separate management of greywater is to avoid wasting water on managing your toilet. Also, by keeping black waste separate from greywater you avoid contaminating tens of thousands of litres of water with potentially harmful (pathogenic) bacterial. This means the greywater is much easier to treat to a sufficient standard to be dispersed above or below ground.
On average, Australian households use a total of 240,000 litres of water a year if they have a flushing toilet. According to the Victorian Plumbing Industry Commission a 5,000L rainwater tank on a 100m2 roof area would yield 60,000L per year. So as well as reducing a household’s water demand by installing a waterless toilet, reusing greywater in an effective manner is also vital to the design of a self-sufficient sustainable home.
