Wastewater Management

With a very diverse and efficient team at RPMenviro we deliver outstanding service and product.

Grey Water Systems

Greywater is wastewater generated from bathroom sinks, laundries and baths, which can be re-cycled for use around the home or in the garden.

Some benefits of using greywater:

  • Re-use water you have already paid for
  • Less inflow into your sewerage treatment system or septic system
  • Lower freshwater use
  • Reclamation of otherwise wasted nutrients into your garden

Greywater Diversion

A grey water diverter can save up to 150,000L per year in an average houshold. Greywater diversion works by diverting greywater through a filtration devise connected to an underground drip irrigation system, using the soil to filter out contaminants and odours. Spray irrigation is not permitted due to contaminants in the water.

Greywater Treatment

Using a greywater treatment system, greywater can be treated on-site to remove the contaminants, restoring it to a quality suitable for re-using in the laundry or to flush toilets.

RPMenviro will sit with you to discuss your individual requirements, and find a solution best suited to your needs. Once we have installed your system we will stick with you along the way as you settle in, and if you choose, we will maintain the regular servicing of your system.

The technologies used by RPMenviro are favoured by councils all across Australia, and are approved in all states.
