Grey water is wastewater that has not been treated and contains high levels of pollutants, like soap and shampoo. It can be used for garden irrigation, cleaning surfaces and laundry. When a grey water tank is full, wastewater must be treated before it can be used again. This can create a problem because the amount of wastewater treatment required increases as the tank becomes fuller. Municipalities are working to find a solution to this problem.
There are two types of grey water tanks, the first being the small grey water tank and the second being the large grey water tank. Both of these grey water tanks store grey water, but in different capacities. The small grey water tank stores 50 gallons of grey water, while the large grey water tank stores 75 gallons of grey water. This grey water is used to flush toilets, wash dishes, and other such things that take in a large quantity of water. However, when the small grey water tank is full, the large grey water tank becomes the new storage location for the grey water. The large grey water tank is emptied through a hose that goes into the sink and flushes the grey water through the sink, and the small grey water tank empties through the drain.
When your grey water tank is full, the pressure increases and the flow rate reduces, resulting in a slower and weaker stream.
You can test the pressure by placing a bucket under the drain. If it takes longer for the water to drain out of the bucket, the pressure is too high and you should lower the pressure by opening the valve a little. If the water drains out quickly, you have enough pressure and the valve should stay closed.
You can also tell by the color of the water coming out. If the water is dark, it means the pressure is too high and you have to open the valve.
If you have an overflow you can buy an air pressure regulator to regulate the pressure. This is not really necessary for a simple situation, but if your tank is big you can buy one to reduce the pressure and prevent the tank from bursting.
The tank should be emptied before refilling it. The easiest way to empty the tank is to drain it completely. Drain the tank by turning off the power switch, and wait for the pump to stop. The pump uses electricity and should stop when the water level reaches the end of the valve. Then remove the lid, disconnect the hose from the inlet valve, and open the outlet valve slowly to let all the water flow out. When the water is out, turn the power back on, close the inlet valve, and then reconnect the hose to the outlet valve. You will have to repeat this process several times to drain the tank completely. If the tank is not empty, then refill the tank and run the water for a few minutes to flush the water out of the lines and out of the tank.
If the toilet does not work, check the pressure in the tank. Check the float level and the water level in the tank. A tank that is too low can cause the water to leak through the tank and out the overflow hole. A tank that is too high can prevent the water from flowing through the pipes and out the overflow hole. If the tank is low enough that the water can leak out the overflow hole, then it is time to install a new tank.
Grey water is basically waste water that goes to the drain. Black water, on the other hand, is a sewage drain water.
Black water contains solid and liquid waste that may contain human waste, including fecal matter. Some examples of black water are toilet bowl water and bathroom sink drain water. Grey water is the wastewater from the kitchen sinks, showers, baths and laundry machines. It can also include the wastewater from sinks, showers, bathtubs, clothes washers and dishwashers.
