In 2014, the first generation NEXtreater became the first grey water product to meet the California State Plumbing Code for treated water reuse in spray irrigation and even indoors for toilet flushing. In 2017, the newest generation NEXtreater has made water recycling better and easier than ever. Already the sleekest, most polished product in the category, the newest generation model takes productized grey water systems to a whole new level. The new molded plastic unibody — a departure from the folded sheet metal of the previous generation — allows the system to be lighter, quieter, easier to handle on worksites, and better insulated against extreme weather. The new, more energy-efficient design also provides easier access for regular maintenance, which occurs approximately twice a year. In addition, the consensus by California plumbers and contractors is clear: the newly designed underground infrastructure (what we call “the Recycle Ready Assembly”) has made installation easier than ever. This saves on builder confusion and, most importantly, installation costs. The Recycle Ready Assembly (RRA) is included with every NEXtreater purchase. More here: https://youtu.be/-HLHe4TxpUk
The NEXtreater system allows builders to satisfy municipal pressure to conserve water (up to 35% per home), while also providing the landscaping packages that their customers want and have come to expect. This translates to more lush, green landscape or even larger pools than what would otherwise be permitted. Also, because homes that recycle grey water use 70% less sewer, builders can expect to extend the life of and/or reduce the size of septic systems and leach fields. Finally, builders can take pride in having built the most water and sewer efficient homes available in California.
The NEXtreater system provides a drought-proof source of water for irrigation that can be used any day of the week. In drought-prone regions, this is a tremendous value, particularly for homeowners that prefer green grass to drought-resilient landscaping. In new construction, recycling grey water can also allow homeowners to install greener landscape or larger pools, which enhances and protects their resale value. Also, because homes that recycle grey water use 70% less sewer, homeowners can expect to extend the life of their septic systems, which can save tends of thousands of dollars on maintenance and replacements over the life of the home. Finally, homeowners can take pride in owning one of the most water and sewer efficient homes available in California.
