Greyter Water Systems Inc., a Tucson, Ariz.-based creator and manufacturer of home water recycling system, closed its $3m Series A funding.
The round led by Lennar Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to scale its business, add staff and expand inventory and production capacity.
Led by Mark Sales, CEO and Co-founder, Greyter Water Systems has created the Greyter HOME™, an NSF 350 certified water recycling system that can help reduce indoor water consumption in a family home. Instead of flushing toilets with treated drinking water, the Greyter HOME allows users to flush them with the water already used for bathing, reducing interior household water consumption. The system works by collecting water from showers and baths to a device roughly the size of a small stacked washer-dry. It first screens out any hair and large solid particles. Then the system’s ultra-filter removes microorganisms, remaining solids and most of the soap. The filtered water then passes through a process that removes any remaining soaps and surfactants. That water is then stored until the toilet is flushed. If there’s too much greywater, excess is sent down the drain — where it would typically go without the system. If there’s too little water for toilet flushing, the system can tap into water lines to make up the difference.
