Greensquarewater

Purification process

Green Square Water’s processes meet strict Australian Guidelines for water recycling set out by Federal and State Governments. Stormwater is cleaned to the highest Australian standards, undergoing four extensive filtration and purification processes including Ultrafiltration and Reverse Osmosis (RO).

Purification Steps

  1. Stormwater Screening
  2. Fine

  3. Ultrafiltration
  4. Reverse Osmosis
  5. Chlorination
1

Stormwater Screening

Plastics and rubbish are removed from the stormwater.

2

Fine Screening

Stormwater is pumped through a Micro Strainer to remove very fine particles in preparation for the Ultrafiltration process.

3

Ultrafiltration

Purified water is sucked through microscopic membranes that block out bugs - removing bacteria, pathogens and all other impurities. The holes in the fibres are so tiny, bacteria and viruses are unable to penetrate and are forced out, keeping the recycled water clean.

4

Reverse Osmosis

Water then moves through another membrane filtration technology known as Reverse Osmosis (RO). RO removes small molecules, ions and salts from the water, improving quality.

5

Chlorination

This step disinfects the recycled water to ensure there is no bacteria.
