Greywater Recycling System AQUALOOP in Tauranga

Owners of a small lifestyle block on the outskirts of Tauranga decided that a Greywater Recycling System is the way forward to futureproof their house.    Bathroom greywater from shower, tub and sink is collected in a 500 ltr tank, treated via the AQUALOOP system, transferred into a 500 ltr clear water tank and reused for flushing toilets and irritation when required.
