Posted By Trey Farmer On March 31, 2009 @ 4:10 pm In Sustainable Building,Water Issues | 10 Comments
Who says plumbing is boring? The forward thinking folks at Sloan Valve Company  have come up with a compact greywater system  for your bathroom that is easy to install and works with the existing fixtures . The Sloan® AQUS® Greywater System  filters the water that goes down your sink drain and then uses it to flush your toilet, potentially saving a household up to 5,000 gallons of potable water each year.
This system helps contribute to LEED accreditation and could posibly lead the way for more wider adoption of extensive greywater  recycling systems and public education of just how important water re-use  is. Either way, it’s a pretty sweet gem to have hidden under your sink saving you water, money and peace of mind.
