Tucked inside a vanity cabinet, the AQUS Greywater Recycling System is a diminutive 13.5” x 15.5” x 9.5” and 5.5 gallons in size. This water conservation product captures water from a bathroom sink drain, treats it and sends it over to the loo for a second use. The system is composed of two units: the Fill Control Unit and the Vanity Tank Unit. The Fill Control Unit basically keeps the toilet valve in the “off” position allowing recycled water from the Vanity Tank to fill the tank. It does not shut off the fresh water supply or connect to it. Although, the AQUS Greywater Recycling System is compatible with a large number of toilets on the market, it is not currently compatible with dual flush or one-piece toilets. The company site provides information on compatibility. Easily installed by most DIYers, the system operates with 12-volt DC pump with an estimated annual cost per year of 50 cents.
