Wastewater Rebirth / water recycling system

Wastewater Rebirth

“Wastewater Rebirth” is household wastewater classifying and recycling system, especially for the high-rise buildings.In this system, the wash basins and bathtubs have two water outlets: one for recycling and the other for drainage. For example, people on the upper floor opens the "Recycle Switch", then the recyclable water goes down through "Recycle Water Pipeline" which is connected to downstairs. People on the lower floors can reuse the wastewater provided by "Recyclable Water Pipeline".Meanwhile, the non-recyclable water flows directly into the sewer. Though this system, we achieve the purpose of wastewater recycling.
