INSTALLATION CONSIDERATIONS   

Basic installation steps:

  1. Prior to installation ensure that you are following applicable plumbing and electrical guidelines in your city or state/province and that your plumbing configuration is protected against backflow and cross connection maintaining the safety of the public water supply.
  2. Position the Hydraloop device in its planned location.
  3. Connect H600 wastewater outlet to sewer.
  4. Connect incoming greywater to the inlet on the top of the device via inlet manifold, in combination with external lift pump if necessary.
  5. Connect H600 reusable water outlet connections.
  6. Connect the backup water supply and open.
  7. Plug 100/240V power cord into wall socket.
  8. Run the Testing, Verification and Activation using the HDM with your Hydraloop Sales Engineer.

H600 INSTALLATION ORIENTATION 

The H600 does not need to be affixed to the wall to protect against falling over as it is balanced with its two upper tanks having a wider base for stability. Access is needed to both the front and back of the device for maintenance, so it is recommended that it be installed with its side flush against the wall. See image below:

FRONT PLATE REMOVAL AND BACKPLATE REMOVAL

To remove the stainless-steel front plate, use a lever on the lower side of the front plate to carefully lift the stainless plate upwards. The plate is holding its position due to its shape so once it moves upwards it will be free to remove. Disconnect the LED light connection from the front plate and put the plate aside.
The H600 has both a front and back plate with LED light connections on the front only. Both will need to be removed to expose both modules on either side.

  1. Carefully wedge a wooden (broom stick handle) or plastic tool    between the bottom of the front plate and the floor and move the front plate upwards.
  2. Remove the front plate off the device.
    Disconnect the earth wire and LED light connection (Premium model) from the top of the front plate being careful not to break the wire connection.
    *Place the front plate in a way that it cannot fall and be damaged.

H600 GREYWATER INLET MANIFOLD INSTALLATION

  1. Inlet diverter valve
  2. Manual shut-off valve
  3. T1A & T1B greywater inlet pipes
  4. Overflow pipe
  5. Black rubber seal rings

Install the H600 inlet manifold as follows:

  1. There are 3 pipes to be inserted into the top of the device and 1 open ended connection for the greywater inlet.
  2. Stand in front of the device (the front is the side with the LED connections) and note that the inlet manifold needs to be oriented with the valve cluster (indicated by #1 & #2 on the drawing above) on the far/back side of the T1 tank inlet.
  3. Place 1 of the black seal rings on the overflow pipe (#4 on drawing) and slide it all the way to the T-piece.
  4. Lubricate (Vaseline) the outside of the seal and the overflow inlet port.
  5. Lubricate the other 2 seal rings both inside and outside, and both T1 inlet pipes.
  6. Place a lubricated seal ring over each of the inlet pipes.
  7. Position and slide the inlet manifold into the T1 tank inlets and overflow port as indicated in the above drawing. Apply equal pressure, ensuring the top pipe stays horizontal, and push all 3 pipes in until the seal on the overflow pipe is securely nested in between the T-piece and the T1 tank overflow opening.
  8. Ensure all 3 seals are securely in place and watertight.
  9. Connect the 40mm | 1 ½” OD shut off valve to the manifold inlet and connect the 3-way Recycle Ready valve with the pipework to the shut off valve.

REUSABLE WATER OUTLETS

The Hydraloop device comes equipped with three standard outlet valves, (1) dedicated for feeding multiple toilets (no high flush toilets) and (1) dedicated for feeding one washing machine (1) auxiliary outlet (irrigation). Note that the irrigation valve will not be permanently pressurized, unlike the other two reusable water outlets. This outlet’s standard function is to supply reusable water when a surplus is available.

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.  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.

DEVICE MALFUNCTION #

The Hydraloop device is extremely reliable, and all critical components are monitored continuously by our server through a permanent Wi-Fi internet connection. In the unlikely event a component fails (i.e., the UV lamp) the device will automatically switch to backup water, and everything in-house will function as usual, with no reusable water being distributed as a precaution. An automated system warning will appear on the HDM and Hydraloop APP.

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 H600.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS #

Auxiliary Outlet: This valve allows for the distribution of reusable water to be used for the garden, irrigation, or pool top-up (depending on your region). This outlet is non-pressurized.

Backup water: Water that is used as a main source of water in the building. This could be tap water, municipal water, well water, rain water etc. Another term for backup water is ‘mains water’.

Blackwater: Contaminated wastewater containing pathogens from human waste and other organic materials. This waste stream can come from toilets, bidets, hand showers, floor drains, dishwashers, and kitchen sinks.

Greywater: Lightly contaminated domestic water coming from the drains of baths, showers and washing machines.

Hydraloop APP: This is an APP that device owners can download on their smartphone. The APP monitors how a Hydraloop device is functioning, offers tips on how to save more water and gives encouragement when water savings in the building are at a high level. The APP will notify the owner when the 21-day Activation date (and a minimum of 20 showers/baths) has been reached and when the device is ready to distribute reusable water.

Hydraloop Device Manager (HDM): Online monitoring system for the Hydraloop device. During installation, this platform is used for testing, verification, and activation of the Hydraloop device. After installation, the HDM is used for monitoring, maintenance, troubleshooting and ticket generation. Before installation of a Hydraloop device, the HDM requires login credentials, provided by Hydraloop. Please ask your Hydraloop installer if your device has a viable login-code before installation.

Inlet diverter: This optional valve allows for the intake of greywater from sources other than the shower/bath i.e. the washing machine. By adding this valve to the inlet of the Hydraloop device, greywater from the washing machine can be treated for reuse.

Recycle Ready Guide: This is a guide provided by Hydraloop, aimed at device owners, plumbers, and contractors. The Recycle Ready Guide explains how to prepare and configure the plumbing network in a building, so it is ready to receive and recycle greywater.

Recycle Ready Checklist: Once preparations are complete, the Hydraloop owner and construction professional verify and co-sign the ‘Recycle Ready Checklist’. Then, the Hydraloop owner sends the co-signed Checklist to their Hydraloop Partner. Without a signed and verified Recycle Ready Checklist, an installation date cannot be planned.

Reusable water: Greywater that has undergone various steps of treatment to be reused for toilet flushing, water for the washing machine and/or outdoor uses (irrigation, pool top-up).

Start-up Time: The Hydraloop device requires a minimum of 21 days (3 weeks) or 20 showers to develop the biological treatment process in the T2 tanks and become fully operational. If the device has not sensed 20 showers by 21 days of operation, the start-up time will last longer. Ventilation: This is placed along the greywater line to prevent anti-siphoning of water out of airlock. Ensure that the greywater input and sewage output both have proper two-way ventilation. Ventilation for greywater input should be above all greywater lines and end outside the building.
