STARTUP TIME   #

The Hydraloop device requires a minimum of 21 days (3 weeks) and 20 showers to develop the biological treatment process in the T2 tanks and become fully operational. The greywater treatment will start from the initial start-up; however, this reusable water will be purged into the sewer and the backup water will be supplied instead. After this start-up period of 21 days (3 weeks) and 20 showers, the Hydraloop device will automatically switch over to deliver reusable water to the toilets, washing machine and/or auxiliary outlet.

BACKUP WATER & BACKFLOW PREVENTION #

If there is not enough reusable water available, the device will automatically switch to backup water. The device is connected to its backup water supply via an air gap to protect the tap water against backflow or cross contamination. Additionally, a non-return valve is mounted on the point of incoming backup water.

NOTE: If using rainwater as a backup water supply pretreatment must be applied prior to entering the Hydraloop device; this treatment must be done according to EN 16941-1. Pretreatment should include a 5-micron filter and carbon filtration, UV disinfection, expansion vessel and a pressure regulator (depending on the booster pump). The incoming flowrate should not exceed 12 lpm | 3.2 gpm, 1.5-3 bar | 21.75 – 43.5 psi.

PLUMBING BACKUP FACILITY #

During periods of unscheduled maintenance, service, or power failure it might be possible that supply of reusable water backup water is temporarily not available. To overcome this a bypass option can be installed. The bypass setup must comply with the applicable regulations of the country, state, or municipality.

SYSTEM MALFUNCTION #

Your Hydraloop device is very reliable, with all critical components being monitored continuously by the Hydraloop server through your Wi-Fi internet connection. In the unlikely event a component fails – for example the UV lamp – the Hydraloop system will automatically switch to backup water with no reusable water being distributed as a precaution.

Note: Hydraloop Systems BV is not liable for any damage if the above or any other abnormal substances enters the Hydraloop device causing the system and/or the washing machine damage.

Warning #

Hydraloop device is designed for ‘normal usage’ and is not designed to receive solid materials like stones, chemicals, paint residues, hair dye, bleach, disinfectants, or any other matter that is unusual for shower/bath and washing machine greywater. In the event these substances enter the H300, it can be damaged, and the water treatment can be affected. There is a function in the APP where the greywater from the T1 tank can be wasted to the sewer if you suspect foreign matter has entered the Hydraloop device (i.e., hair dye or bleach).

Note: Hydraloop Systems BV is not liable for any damage if the above or any other abnormal substances enter the H300.
