A working prototype designed by Ainslie Asher of Australia could help redefine what we expect from a kitchen sink. The award-winning Eulo Grey Water Recycling Sink is a self-contained unit with a three-filter system designed to clean water recycled from the kitchen sink.
Step One: Used water passes through a particle strainer to filter large solid waste particles. Step Two: Used water passes through a gravity-activated carbon filter. Step Three: An ultraviolet light kills germs and bacteria. The filtered water is sent to the dishwasher and after it’s used to clean the dishes, it goes out to irrigate the garden – bringing water conservation efforts to a peak performance. And bonus – the system includes an option for adding dish washing detergent inline. If produced, the Eulo Grey Water Recycling Sink will retail for about $3,000.
