Today’s Solutions: December 05, 2021

Imagine how much water and energy we could save if we recycled all the wastewater that goes down our sinks and shower drains right in our own homes? In a bid to make such a scenario a reality, startup Hydraloop has engineered a simple water recycling system that can be used in any building or home, anytime.

Having won several awards at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020, Hydraloop stands out as an innovation with real potential to close the tap on water waste. Its goal is to create compact recycling systems that can be used at offices, hotels, apartment buildings, homes, and any other place with running water.

Its electricity-powered systems work by collecting water from washing machines, bathtubs, and showers, as well as water from air conditioners. The water is then cleaned and disinfected so it can be reused — though not for drinking.

One of Hydraloop’s most recent models, Hydraloop H600, can clean about 260 gallons of water per day for homes and small businesses, equalling more than 90,000 gallons of water per year. The systems are not bulky or overly complicated, so any skilled plumber can install one. Once the Hydraloop is in place, water starts being recycled immediately.
