How it Works
Click on a step below for additional details.
Greywater is diverted away from the Greywater Processor and back to the sewer during rain and freezing temperatures.
Showers, washing machines and sinks can be connected.
The GreyLink Greywater Processor removes debris from the greywater in preparation for reuse in drip irrigation.
The greywater is stored until
pre-defined irrigation times
Greywater is Produced, Routed, Processed and Contained
Greywater is Used to Irrigate
Automatic Scheduled Irrigation
Based on a selected irrigation schedule, the GreyLink Greywater Processor's pump is activated and the contained greywater is pumped into the distribution lines and through the drip emitters.
Potable Water is Added if Required
If the amount of stored greywater isn't sufficient for irrigation, additional potable water will be automatically added to the system to compensate
for the difference.

Greywater is Produced
Greywater is produced from a shower, sink, or washing machine. The greywater is routed into the GreyLink Greywater Processor.
How Much Greywater Does Each Fixture Produce?
The greywater must be plumbed into a line separate from blackwater sources (toilet, kitchen sink). This separate greywater line must run to the GreyLink Greywater Processor.
The amount of greywater product by each fixture will vary based on personal usage. Approximate usages are as follows (per use):
Sink: .25 / gallon
Shower: 25 gallons
Bathtub: 50 gallons
Washing Machine: 25 gallons
Weather Driven Greywater Routing
The GreyLink system includes an automatic diversion system which will automatically re-route greywater back to the sewer or septic line during rainfall or freezing temperatures. A manual override toggle switch allows for diversion during occasional system maintenance.

Automatic Valve Control
All of the electronic controls and weather sensor for the greywater diversion system are located in the GreyLink control center. More >
Greywater is Processed
Once entering the GreyLink Greywater Processor, the greywater is filtered through the primary 150-mesh filtration system which removes all debris from the greywater in preparation for storage.

Greywater is Contained
Once the greywater has been filtered, it drops down into the greywater storage reservoir where it will remain until the irrigation system is activated.
Automatic Scheduled Irrigation
Based on a selected irrigation schedule, the GreyLink Greywater Processor's pump is activated and the contained greywater is pumped through the secondary filter, the activated zone valve and on to the drip emitters.

Fresh Water is Added if Required
If more water is required to irrigate than what is stored in the reservoir, potable water (or stored rainwater) is automatically added to complete the zone watering as needed.
