California-based Water Wise Group makes the Aqua2use Greywater System, which was selected recently as a Top-10 Green Product for 2012 by Environmental Building News and GreenSpec. The product is meant to be a cost-effective way to save water and could help a family of four conserve up to 40,000 gallons of water annually through the reuse of washing machine, shower, and bath water.
Consumers are turning to greywater systems to reduce their potable water consumption as a result of growing interest in water savings and concerns over the long-term effects of droughts or water price increase. Over the past few years we’ve seen great efficiencies in flush and flow fixtures, as well as bathroom systems; however, to keep cutting demand, forward thinking projects are moving towards greywater reuse. One system on the market is by a company called Water Legacy.
Illinois-based Sloan Valve Company won all sorts of awards for AQUS Water Reuse System (model HMA6000). That award-winning system has been updated, and the new HMA7000 model is now available. The upgraded small-scale water reuse system has a redesigned look and feel, installs in less than one hour, and is compatible with most dual-flush and one-piece toilets on the market.
