Environmentally Friendly Ultraviolet (UV) Commercial Water Recycling
Greywater collection systems collect water from baths, showers and hand washing for recycling. Greywater recycling can reduce mains water consumption by up to 49%1
Greywater recycling is ideally suited to commercial operations with significant demand for water for baths, showers and laundry such as hotels, leisure centres, gyms, caravan and camping sites, hospitals and laundry recycling, student accommodation or large residential blocks.
After the used water has been collected it is filtered and UV treated to disinfect it, without the use of harmful chemicals, for the safe reuse for non-potable (drinking water) purposes such as flushing toilets, irrigation and laundry.
Commercial greywater recycling saves money, reduces water consumption, improves efficiency of water use and increases corporate sustainability.
As a fundamental part of our water recycling and UV water treatment technologies, Daro UV Systems has been designing, manufacturing and successfully delivering certified UV systems for water recycling in the UK for over 40 years.
We source as many of the materials and components from the UK as possible; this keeps our supply chain short and manageable; to provide you with a reliable service.
Our solutions are compact, cost-effective, reliable, fast, environmentally friendly and safe.

Domestic Water Recycling
The same principle is applied to domestic greywater where wastewater generated from domestic activities such as laundering, bathing and showering or dishwashing is recycled for other practical uses. The name greywater is derived from its cloudy appearance and because it is neither white water; groundwater or potable (drinking quality) water or polluted, such as sewage; known as blackwater.
Greywater contains much less nitrogen than blackwater which is one of the most serious, and difficult to remove, pollutants affecting potential drinking water supplies. Greywater also contains fewer pathogens than blackwater and, therefore, will decompose more quickly, resulting in the accelerated stabilisation and improved prevention of water pollution.
Greywater UV Systems
Many greywater collection systems will simply collect water from baths, showers and hand washing because they exclude more contaminated water which comes from washing machines and dishwashers. A simple and compact UV water treatment enables water recycling for areas such as flushing toilets, irrigation and laundry.
Greywater systems installed into new buildings have the potential to meet a large and significant proportion of domestic water requirements, and the overall potential water savings via greywater recycling (or grey water reclamation) are significant.
In a domestic setting a fully operational greywater system may save up to 70 litres per person per day (49%1) taken from the mains supply to a domestic property and will contribute towards less freshwater extraction from rivers and aquifers.
