Flotender System Type / Sizing Guide

The Flotender Greywater Irrigation system can be configured as an immediate or a timed irrigation system.

Immediate Irrigation System

Upon entering the Flotender Greywater Processor, the greywater is immediately filtered and pumped out to the irrigation emitters.

Sizing:
What is the maximum amount of greywater that will be produced at one time?

 

Approximate Greywater Fixture Production: (per use)

Sink: .25 / gallon

Shower: 25 gallons

Washing Machine: 25 gallons

Example:

A home has 4 showers, 4 sinks and 1 washing machine. In this home, most of the greywater fixtures will be used in the morning. On average 3 showers and 2 sinks will be used simultaneously. The maximum greywater surge at one time will be 75.5 gallons of greywater.  For this installation a Flotender System which provides approximately 75 gallons of surge capacity will be necessary.

What will happen if the surge capacity is exceeded?

The Flotender system includes a built-in overflow connection which can be routed back to the sewer, septic or approved drainage location in the landscape.

Timed Irrigation System (pump timer required)

Greywater flows into the Flotender Greywater Processor, is filtered and contained until a scheduled irrigation time (less than 24 hrs)

Sizing:
What is the maximum amount of greywater that will be produced in a 24 hour period?

 

Approximate Greywater Fixture Production: (per use)

Sink: .25 / gallon

Shower: 25 gallons

Washing Machine: 25 gallons

Example:

A home has 4 showers, 4 sinks and 1 washing machine. During a 24-hour period, each fixture will be used once, therefore the total greywater containment requirement will be 126 gallons. For this installation a Flotender System which provides approximately 126 gallons of containment will be necessary.

What will happen if the containment capacity is exceeded?

The Flotender system includes a built-in overflow connection which can be routed back to the sewer, septic or approved drainage location in the landscape.
