FAQs - Ozzi Kleen Grey Water Treatment System (GTS10) - Greywater Recycling for your home
Q What is an Ozzi Kleen GTS10?
Answer: Ozzi Kleen GTS10 is a 10 person Domestic Greywater Treatment Plant, utilizing the Fully Aerobic Activated Sludge technology used in most modern day town and city council treatment plants.
Q What does it do?
Answer: It captures and treats all greywater, from showers, baths, basins, and laundry to a standard available for reuse on gardens/lawns and even back through toilets and the laundry in some states where regulations permit.
Q How does it work?
Answer: All greywater enters the single tank where oxygen is circulated via an aerator. This keeps the naturally occurring aerobic bacteria found in the wastewater alive, which in turn actively feeds and breaks down the waste. Treated water is decanted and stored within the tank in the effluent holding compartment available for reuse on gardens, laundry or toilet flushing* when needed. A safety device is present which allows excess water to be used on gardens or disposed back to the sewer.
