Pre-assembled, packaged Aqualoop greywater recycling systems for commercial-scale projects offer many advantages over systems assembled on-site with locally supplied or pour-in-place concrete tanks. Engineering and design time is greatly reduced because tank sizes, penetrations, with plumbing and electrical connections are all set. Likewise, installation time and complexity are greatly reduced with minimal assembly and connections required. This all leads to reduce engineering and installation costs with faster start-up and system reliability.
There are three main commercial-scale NSF 350 certified sizes of Aqualoop packaged systems, the GW1800L, GW3600L, and GW5400L. All come with fittings and filtration installed, and key equipment assembled. Similar to a skid based solution, all that is required for installation is to connect the control panel and power and hook up the plumbing. Aqualoop’s patented and NSF 350 certified MBR technology assures high water quality with low maintenance. The technology is scalable to any capacity by installing multiple NSF 350 (C) certified packaged units in parallel.
Each packaged system is shipped shop tested and ready for electrical and plumbing hook-up, with a complete drawing set, submittal package, and O&M manual.
Let’s take a look at one example of an installed Aqualoop packaged system.
Greenway Meadows Project:
This recently installed system is at a senior living center in Santa Monica, CA will collect greywater from 38 apartments and laundry facilities. The NSF 350 treated water will be used for toilet flushing and irrigation. The Greenway Meadows packaged Aqualoop system is an NSF 350 certified packaged GW3600L which treats an average of 952 GPD. The tanks come with all fittings mounted and the pre-filter and float switches installed. The system is controlled by a stand-alone Aqualoop controller.
Ecovie Water Management supplied the system through its Southern California manufacturer’s representative, Weil Aquatronics in Norwalk, CA. The installing contractor is KB Engineering of Glendora, CA and the General contractor is Walton Construction. Ecovie worked with the engineering firm IDiaz Design to size and design the Aqualoop system.
