The Objective of Water Cycle Automation is to use and reuse this precious resource of nature. Automation acts an enabler for effective water savings and detecting water leakage. The Rainwater collected from the system is passed through the Rain water Pre filtration system. The output is collected in the Rain water sump.
The collected water from Rain water sump is sent to the sump via Rainwater Filtration system. The Rain water Filtration system consists of 4 layers namely Quartz, Silica, Coal and Garnet where most of the impurities are removed. The Purified water at this stage is collected in the Rain water sump where Corporation/Purchased water is mixed.
The water is again subjected to raw water filtration. The Raw water filtration system consists of dual-stage processing. Initially the water is purified by sending it through pressurized sand filter consisting of quartz, silica, garnet followed by filtration via pebbles, Gravel and activated carbon. This triple-stage filtered water is collected in the Filtered Fresh water sump. The water is now pumped to the domestic water tank. Water from the domestic water tank is used for Cooking. Dishwashing, shower, wash basin.
Also there are two water flow meters, One between Rain water filtration and Rain water sump and another between Domestic water tank and tap. Its function is to track the water usage, detect water leakage and report it to the eFACiLiTY® – Facilities management system avoiding water wastage.
Recycling the used Water
The water used for the above purposes is not wasted but recycled and reused. The impure water is now passed through a dual filtration system: KLARO Filtration and STP Water Filtration. KLARO filtration system involves processing water through Oil and grease stopper, anaerobic digester, and Collection system. This water is again processed through Filling, Aeration Sedimentation, and discharge. Finally, now the water is collected in the Recycled water Sump. From the sump, it is pumped to the flushing water tank and finally to the tap through a water flow meter. The recycled water is used for both flushing and gardening.
Water quality refers to the chemical, physical, and biological properties of water based on the standards of its use.
Below are some steps implemented in our eFACiLiTY® building to ensure water quality:
- Legionella control, sediment filter, microbial elimination, and periodic water quality testing always ensure high-quality water availability in the facility
- The water contaminants listed in this feature are tested at intervals of no less than once a year, and results are submitted annually through WELL Online
- Even sink dimensions are as per WELL standards
