 South Africa is experiencing more and more restraints on its water supply and with costs escalating year on year, South Africans would need to adapt to a lifestyle of saving water before it is too late for this precious resource. If every household in South Africa had a grey water system in place, the benefits would be huge for our water supply and the preservation of it. It is also a great investment for the consumer, saving them money on their water bill each month. 4EVR Plastic Products currently provides the consumer with a specialised grey water system as well a rainwater storage system. The grey water system looks at the recycling of household water whilst the rainwater storage system saves the rainwater for later use in your garden. The 4EVR grey water system is simple to use and easy to install. It consists of an extended pipe with a filter that flows into a closed unit preserving tank, which ensures no leakage or evaporation. It is important to remember that the grey water system and tank is not a storage system, but only a collection point for recycled water. The filter stops hair and natural fats from your body and skin from coming through, which could potentially damage your irrigation pump. The 4EVR grey water system is easily maintained and cleaned, it is made of durable Polyethylene which is non-corrosive and rust free. Household waste pipes from your shower, bath, basins and washing machine are extended to a convenient central point where it passes through the filter into the water tank from where it is pumped to your garden. Kitchen water should not be used as the greasiness and fatty residue may block the irrigation pipes. The recommended tank size of the 4EVR grey water system is between 200 and 500 litres. The tank should not be much bigger as it is only a collection point for recycled water and not a storage tank. Regular pumping will inhibit bacteria growth and the forming of odours. The average household could save up to 50litres per person per day. A household of six may save up to 9000 litres of recycled water per month. Join in the fight for preserving our most precious resource – WATER.
