Flotender™ is a division of Filtrific®, a company that has been manufacturing high-quality water feature products for over 20 years. Filtrific’s water feature line was originally designed not only for water features, but also with the forethought of reducing residential water waste using rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling.
The Flotender™ product line utilizes the same durable, professional grade products that have been successfully used throughout the United States in both residential and commercial water features. Our continual drive toward innovation and creating a higher standard of product has resulted in enhanced technology that makes Flotender™ products the ultimate in landscape water conservation while simultaneously preserving beautiful landscapes.
The Flotender grey water system was developed to reuse water from your household activities, such as washing clothes, dishes, or bathing, to irrigate your landscape. This can help you save water, money, and benefit your plants.
With a Flotender greywater irrigation system you can depend on a commercial grade greywater system that will provide years of operation and you will get the satisfaction of your water, that otherwise would have gone down the sewer, is actually being used to water your plants. As the plants grow, they provide a more beneficial living environment for both people and animals. So, If you were not allowed to water at all, you could still use the greywater and end up growing trees and other landscape that would never be there without using your greywater.
The Flotender grey water system filters the water so it can be distributed by the Netafim Bioline 560 dripline tubing that is manufactured specifically for wastewater applications. It is the world’s most advanced continuous self-cleaning, pressure-compensating dripline for grey water. The Flotender grey water system delivers filtered and pressurized gray water to the Netafim Bioline® dripline into the soil with great precision, ensuring that the grey water does not flood an area or become exposed to people or animals. By distributing the grey water into the ‘biologically active soil horizon’, it not only allows the soil to break down the grey water, but it also allows plants, trees, bushes, and grass to use it, along with its nitrogen and phosphorus content – two of the three ingredients in fertilizer. This ecologically sound process helps protect against the contamination of lakes, rivers, streams and drinking water sources, and it provides an important benefit – the grey water is no longer “wastewater." Flotender turns grey water into reusable, renewable, and beneficial water that becomes a supplement to or replacement for an irrigation system. The best way to recycle grey water from your home, apartment building, or commercial building.
The Flotender gray water system can use water from any source, except the toilet or kitchen sink. The Flotender greywater processor tank usually connects to a greywater stub out that is a plumbing pipe installed during the construction of the house or building and is intended to be used for a grey water irrigation system. It is capped at the end and is usually located outside the house or building. To use it, you connect the pipes from the exterior section of the stub-out pipe to the Flotender grey water system and thereby distribute the grey water into the landscape through the Flotender grey water recycling system.
