IrriGRAY Graywater Pumping Systems

The directors and managers of Just Water Savers USA Inc have extensive experience manufacturing and installing thousands of graywater diversion systems in Australia. Our USA pumping systems use the same core design principles as our Australian 60L and 120L systems (certified under the Australian Watermark Standard), but are manufactured here in the USA using high quality pumps and fittings matching USA plumbing and irrigation standards.

The following features are standard in all of our pumping systems:
Quality 660W Pump as standard They key to long term effectiveness and reliability is using a powerful quality pump to ensure fast irrigation, without having to work the pump hard. The 660W pump uses 440W when in operation, and only costs about 50 cents per month to run for a typical family of 4. Less powerful pumps work harder (shortening the service life), and can cause loss of graywater to overflow. The 660W pump also allows the use of 3/4” supply tube, instead of 1” tube required with lower powered systems. 3/4” supply tube carries about 1/2 the volume of water compared to 1” tubing. 1” tubing therefore requires much more graywater to fill it before the dripperlines are pressurized, typically resulting in uneven irrigation across the garden. A 2 year manufacturers warranty is included with each pumping system. Flexible installation options Want more than 1 inlet? Need to use 3” plumbing instead of 2”? Have a stubout 48” below ground, or perhaps the stubout is 36” above ground? Our range of systems cope with just about any site difficulties, and every house is different! In addition to manufacturing, our experience includes thousands of installations across a wide range of housing styles. Our systems are the most flexible on

the market, saving you money in time, labor and materials. Filtration AFTER the pump This not only saves more graywater (see last page), but provides far greater installation flexibility. Need to place the pumping unit in the crawl space, or 48” below ground level? No problem—the filter can be installed in any convenient location before the irrigation tubing starts. Self cleaning system The internal flushing tube (patent pending) ensures that graywater sludge and particles do not collect inside the basin over time. While we recommend an annual inspection of the unit, regular cleaning of the basin is NOT required— a fantastic benefit for crawl space and deep in ground installations. No electronic controllers or sensors Our systems use a single float switch that is reliable and simply can not hang or become caught. This is far more reliable than systems using small sensors and electronic controllers that require regular servicing, and are prone to damage / interference from GFIs.

IrriGRAY pumping systems are built tough, to handle small and large household / commercial graywater irrigation needs. Simple designs that simply work, year after year.

Save more water with GRAYbarrel
Older design water pumps were not capable of pumping graywater containing hair, lint and other solids. Therefore, most early graywater pumping systems placed filter media between the inlet / overflow area of the container, above the pump itself. The downside of this approach is that substantial amounts of graywater were lost to overflow as the filter media began to collect solids:

Customer Testimonial

My name is Rick Stephenson. I am the director of Construction for Pepper Viner Homes in Tucson Arizona. At Pepper Viner Homes, we have been engaged in research and the building of green energy efficient homes for years now. The company has always attempted to stay out in front of the upcoming trends and best practices towards common sense building... ..Here in Tucson Arizona, conserving water has always been on the forefront and is now becoming even more of a factor as we continue to grow... . ...we successfully installed two complete systems in a model home park, Sunnyside Pointe. The systems are working beautifully and are actually being used by the City of Tucson as a “Water Harvest Demonstration Site” for the general public. .. ... Pepper Viner Homes will continue to use Just Water Savers USA for all of our future Graywater needs. .. ...Adding to the value of this system, we know we can install the complete system inexpensively and it will be very simple to maintain. As I mentioned earlier, the system is very flexible and can be converted to both shallow and deep public sewer connections and is a slam dunk for septic systems! (click here for the full text).

New graywater capable pumps can process hair, lint and other solids with ease—Just Water Savers (Australia) has proven this in many thousands of systems. Therefore, filtration necessary for graywater dripperline irrigation can be placed AFTER the pump:

Because water is pumped through the filter, instead of relying on gravity, much less graywater is lost to overflow. In addition, installing the filter downstream of the pump allows the filter to be located in the most practical location for the home owner / facility manager. This is a breakthrough for crawl space / sub floor, or deep in ground pumping stations. The most common location for the filter/s is on the side of the house or against a privacy fence.
