FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHERE IS GRAYTEC AB REGISTERED?

Graytec AB is a registered as an Aktiebolag (equivalent to an Limited Liability Company) solely within Sweden.

WHERE ARE GRAYTEC AB'S MARKETS?

Sweden and any market where regulations against direct reuse for potable purposes do not prohibit our technology.

WHERE IS GRAYTEC USA REGISTERED?

Graytec USA is registered within the United States of America.

WHERE ARE GRAYTEC USA'S MARKETS?

We are limited to selling our Blue Circle System to non-grid connected properties within the USA.  Like Graytec AB, we are open to exporting our solution to regulation-friendly foreign markets.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE Blue Circle System AND A TRADITIONAL PLUMBING SYSTEM?

The principle of cleansing water for potable use is the same.  Worldwide, people already drink water that has been treated.  Graytec AB offers a more environmentally friendly, and cost-effective method for users to have their water treated on site. 


Graytec's system collects greywaters that comprise the majority of water usage within buildings, and then it recycles it into clean, warm water.  Currently, greywaters throughout the world are flushed into the ecosystem or redirected for cumbersome and expensive treatment at water purification plants.  Graytec AB’s system eases that strain on the environment while saving users money by both heating and recycling it on site. 


In short, Graytec AB is creating a new paradigm within the built environment with its closed-loop, in-building, water recycling system that purifies greywater into warm, potable water.

HOW DOES THE Blue Circle System WORK?

1. Graytec AB’s patented Blue Circle plumbing system separates wastewater from sinks, showers and bathtubs into a dedicated drainage system.  Our system’s sensors constantly monitor waters within users’ buildings to ensure constant quality.

2. The Blue Circle System easily connects to traditional water plumbing systems, and it can be placed either inside or outside of users’ buildings.

3. A backup system is included within every Blue Circle System to ensure continuous, trouble-free function.

4. Our self-contained, circular, Blue Circle System functions as a building’s on-site, water treatment center (that recycles up to 60% of greywater used while saving up to 80% of the electricity needed to heat those waters).

5. When use of water within a building becomes too heavy; the Blue Circle System works alongside the traditional plumbing system of that building to ensure users uninterrupted access of potable water.

6. The Blue Circle System does not link to toilets, or anything else connected to the blackwater (i.e. pure wastewater) network.

7. The Blue Circle System can be turned off for maintenance and repair without interruptions in warm-water supply.

IS THE Blue Circle System A SEPARATE PLUMBING SYSTEM THAT WOULD HAVE TO BE INSTALLED IN PLACE OF MY CURRENT ONE?

No, it is an add-on to existing traditional two pipe system. We add a separate drainage pipe parallel to the existing one. We create a four pipe system with smaller dimensions at minimal cost increase.

WHAT IS THE RETURN-ON-INVESTMENT FOR PURCHASING THE Blue Circle System?

Heavy water users, such as residential buildings, hospitals and prisons can see their investments returned in less than three to four years.  


Please contact us for a free estimate.

HOW LARGE IS THE Blue Circle System?

Our system begins at 150 square feet for the first 30 bathrooms that it serves, and it's size increases along with the scope of the structure that it serves by 1 square foot per additional bathroom.

The Blue Circle System can be placed inside or outside of a building (such as the roof) with no complications.

IS THE Blue Circle System PATENTED?

We have an international system patent that is pending.

DOES GRAYTEC AB ONLY OPERATE IN SWEDEN?

Graytec AB operates in Sweden, and it is open to exporting its services to regulation-friendly countries.

WHAT IS GRAYTEC USA'S BACKGROUND?

Graytec USA is Graytec AB's American sister company.  The Graytec AB team realizes that the developed world must alter its approach to water, so the US is a good place to start because it set many of the (unsustainable) standards that much of the world now emulates.

One of Graytec USA's goals is to lobby to help American regulators update their rules, so that products such as our Blue Circle System can operate there.

Graytec USA intends to partner with companies that sell regulation-approved products (e.g. NSF 350 products), while selling the Blue Circle System to niche/non-grid properties where typical regulations do not apply.

Graytec USA will also export to regulation-friendly countries.

PLEASE TELL ME MORE ABOUT SWEDISH REGULATION CHANGES.

Graytec AB is working to update greywater reuse rules alongside the Swedish Standards Institute, the National Environmental Protection Agency (Naturvardsverket), Public health agency and the National Board of Housing, Building, and Planning (Boverket).

We work closely with these agencies to drive change that can show other countries that it is possible to change regulations and standards that are based on old "truths" and lack of technology, if we work together.

PLEASE TELL ME MORE ABOUT AMERICAN GREYWATER REGULATIONS.

American greywater regulations prohibit the direct reuse of water (for potable purposes).  This is because there has never been a technology before that could purify greywater on-site.

Such regulations prohibit Graytec USA from selling its product to any grid-connected property within all 50 states.  However, Graytec USA can sell its product to non grid-connected properties such as ski lodges, eco resorts, and ships.

Graytec seeks to lobby US regulators in the same successful manner as which we worked with Swedish regulators to update these rules.

DOES THE Blue Circle System MEAN THAT I WILL BATHE WITH TREATED WATER?

Yes, but you've been doing that for all of your life.  All water coming into city homes has been treated to some degree or another.  The only difference is that the Blue Circle System acts as your own, in-building water treatment system for your bathrooms' greywaters.
 

IS THE Blue Circle System CONNECTED TO THE TOILET?

No.  Our system only connects to showers, bathtubs, and bathroom sinks.  

Toilets remain connected to the (completely separate) blackwater system.
