Greywater recycling the key to Castlemaine’s water restrictions.
With Castlemaine now on Stage Four water restrictions, a new Australian-designed recycling system may be the answer to water shortages.

The system, called Aqua Reviva, can exclusively treat and recycle household grey water in both new and existing homes. Unlike other systems, Aqua Reviva’s innovative design allows the system to be installed without the need to dig large holes in a back garden, unlike similar systems on the market.

Grey water from the bathroom and laundry can be treated and recycled to health regulations standards so that it can be re-used in washing machines, toilets, as well as for use in the garden and for washing the car.

Treated water can be stored for an unlimited period of time, unlike diversion systems where the water must be used within 24 hours. The system generates water that is “Class A” standard and also removes other harmful nutrients.

Aqua Reviva uses a naturally occurring biological process supported by a light bromine disinfection stage. The system is fail-safe as it incorporates automatic overflows to sewer.

Andrew Pearce, CEO of New Water, the suppliers of Aqua Reviva, said the system is approved for use in the Victoria.

“Homeowners need to think seriously about how water recycling can make a real difference,” Pearce said.

“With demand for water in Australia outstripping supply at an alarming rate, and reservoir levels at an all time low, the system has the potential to save an average home up to 700 litres of water per day.

“We believe Aqua Reviva is the best and most environmentally friendly form of grey water treatment. The system can be installed in both new and existing homes and is unobtrusive and aesthetically appealing. It enables householders to re-use their treated grey water to the full extent allowed by law,” he said.

“The system is completely safe as it is self contained, involves no maintenance or adjustment from the householder and should anything not work exactly as planned then it automatically diverts all water to sewer without any personal intervention.

“In addition to the above, New Water's manufacturing process has been quality Certified by Benchmark and thus you can be sure that the system is manufactured to a consistent standard of high quality,” he said.

New Water is a water specialist company that provides water management solutions throughout Australia.

The company also manufactures and markets a flexible rain water tank system called the Rain Reviva which can store thousands of liters of water conveniently under the house or deck.
