Greywater Installation Manuals:
Download the appropriate installation instructions from the list above. Below is a summary of the installation of the greywater processor to the greywater stub out.
LOCATE THE GREYWATER PROCESSOR:
The first step in the Flotender system installation is to determine the location of the greywater processor. In-flowing greywater must be either gravity-fed from the building’s greywater stub-out or pumped into the greywater processor using an external transfer station.
ABOVE-GROUND GREYWATER PROCESSOR INSTALLATIONS:
Ensure that the greywater processor is placed at an elevation which can be gravity-fed from the stubout in the building. It is recommended that the processor and external components are placed on a level surface with at least 29” of clearance above the top of the processor’s lid for filter removal.
FOR IN-GROUND GREYWATER PROCESSOR INSTALLATIONS:
For in-ground installations, excavate and place the Greywater Processor on 1 inch of compact sand. Sand will protect the bottom of the processor from sharp objects and help in leveling. Ensure that the incoming greywater is able to gravity-flow from the building stub-out.
LOW GREYWATER STUB-OUTS
For installations where the greywater stub-out is below the intake of the greywater processor, a lift station may be installed. The lift station features a built-in pump, and activation float switch which pumps the incoming greywater up and into the greywater processor intake port. Once the greywater processor has been placed and the greywater stub-out connected, the expansion reservoirs can be connected.
SECONDARY FILTER AND PERFORMANCE INDICATOR INSTALLATION AND PIPING
After the greywater processor has been installed you will need to install the secondary filter and the piping between the secondary filter, the performance indicators and the greywater processor.
INSTALLING THE GREYWATER DRIP IRRIGATION SYSTEM
Flotender recommends using Netafim Bioline® dripline for the greywater drip irrigation system. The installation process is straightforward using Netafim insert fittings. Consult the Netafim website for design and installation questions.
