How to Install A Greywater System?

In recent years, with the increase in innovative technology, there have been quite a number of advancements in the field of sustainable living, and one of these innovative moments is the invention of the greywater system. Allowing the recycling of water, the usage of energy has reduced, and has resulted in a more sustainable living. While there are so many benefits of the system in action, there is also the enticing benefit of being able to install one at your very premises with ease. Here is how you could do it:

Locate the Right Places

The first thing you should do in any case when trying to install a G-Flow system is to look of the right places, as a blind installation would mean that the system would not function properly and would be very inefficient, which could also be detrimental once it is installed. The first order of business then, should be finding the right places you would tap into, so as to make sure the lines will be easily connected and would drain out the water very easily, without any sort of clogging.

Install Lines

The next order of business should be the installing of the lines and the system, including the surge tank. This may be quite a laborious task, and may need some help, since the tank is quite large. In other words, you could either install the system underground or overland. The ideal way though is by installing it underground, as it is away from the elements, which would result in a more durable and longer lasting system. Make sure that when installing the lines, it is cleaned and is made with the right material. Moreover, make sure the line is connected properly.

Cover Lines

Once the lines are properly installed, you have to make sure that the lines are covered from the elements, as these lines can get quite battered when exposed to the elements for a long period of time. This is why an underground covering system would be ideal, since it shields the lines from the outside elements. All you have to do is dig a shallow patch of land, install the pipes, and then cover it with the sand. It makes everything all the easier when trying to check for maintenance or looking at repair works. This may be quite another task, but it is certainly a utilitarian one.

Check If It Works

And finally, once everything is done, all you have to do is check whether or not the system is working properly. By doing this, you can understand whether you have properly installed the system or not. Make sure you check all the lines and the surge tank during its operation, as these are the main parts of the system, and the failure of these components would mean the failure of the entire system.

In short then, installing a grey water system is not necessarily difficult, should you be the one up for the challenge. All you have to do is grab a pair of gloves and basic tools!
