PRESERVE NATURAL RESOURCES
Throughout human history, mankind has had to migrate where water sources were available. While humanity can survive without food for up to 30 days, we can only survive a few days without drinkable water. While 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered by salt water, it will not support humanity. Although the salt can be removed, it is fairly energy intensive and eco-unfriendly to do so. This is the result of salt residue, collected during the desalination process. Another 2% of Earth’s freshwater is locked up in polar ice. While this ice could be melted and consumed or used for crop growth, it is not economically feasible due to transportation and storage logistics after the melting process.
Therefore less than 1% of Earth’s fresh water is suitable and readily available for drinking or to produce supportable goods required by an ever growing population. Unfortunately, this precious resource is rapidly being depleted. This remaining 1% is rapidly being polluted faster than Earth’s natural ability to purify it.
For these reasons, the founders of GreyWater Recycling Systems, Inc. were encouraged to develop a new in-home water conservation technology, which redirects grey water originating from bathtubs, showers, sink faucets, and washing machines through a treatment process. This process returns it back to the home for recycling (Patent pending).
Treated grey water can be recycled to replenish water that is consumed by toilets and outdoor irrigation. It can also be used for the washing of cars, sidewalks, driveways, patios, and other exteriors. Another use would be for makeup water in swimming pools.
