How does Hydraloop treat greywater?
Hydraloop uses a unique patented water cleaning and disinfection technology. Ordinary systems use filters or membranes to treat the water, which clog and need regular maintenance. The unique patented technology, that is the heart of Hydraloop, removes dirt, soap and other pollution from your bath, shower and washing machine water without using a filter of chemicals. Hydraloop automatically cleans itself every few weeks without you having to do anything. Because of this, maintenance requirements are low.
Water from the shower, bath and washing machine gets collected into the Hydraloop. The treatment systems combines 5 technologies to remove dirt, soap and other particles from the water; Sedimentation, Flotation, Dissolved Air Flotation, Enforced Skimming and an Aerobic Bioreactor. The 6th technology, which is the final treatment, is disinfection using UV light.
The water quality Hydraloop offers is certified and is clean, clear and safe and meets the most stringent international standards.
