Matala Replacement Filters
The Aqua2use greywater Matala filters are made to be taken out and hosed down periodically to remove the built up lint and debris. We recommend removing the Matala filters and hosing them down once every 6 months. After 3 years, depending on the extent of your greywater filter usage, it is highly recommended that you replace the Matala greywater filters with new ones. It is very simple to remove the old filters and install the new ones in your Aqua2use GWDD or Gravity unit. The complete set of 6 Matala filters takes less than 5 minutes to change out with new ones.
Aqua2use Greywater Filtration Steps
Step 1: When the diverting valve’s arrow is pointing away from the filter, greywater flows direct to the sewer.
Step 2: When the diverting valve’s arrow is pointing towards the Aqua2use greywater unit, greywater from the house (whether the shower, bath, or laundry) is diverted to the inlet of the greywater filter.
Step 3: The greywater flows through the 1st progressive Matala filtration chamber that retains major and medium particles such as hair, lint, paper, detergent clogs and other impurities. (The greywater filter pads: Black is low density, Green is medium density)
Step 4: The greywater flows through the 2nd progressive Matala filtration chamber that retains medium and small particles (The filter pads: Green is medium density, Blue is high density)
Step 5: The greywater flows through the 3rd progressive Matala filtration chamber that retains small and minor particles (The filter pads: Blue is high density, Grey is super high density)
Step 6: The filtered greywater is pumped to the irrigation drip line in your yard or garden

Is it safe to use the Aqua2use to irrigate my garden?
It is absolutely safe to use greywater to water your plants and your trees. Your system needs to be connected to a drip irrigation system, and you should use low phosphate detergent . The filtering system of the Aqua2use is the best on the market, and will intercept lint and other impurities.
Does the water look grey?
No, you will be surprised by how clear the water looks like after filtration by the Aqua2use. You will not water your plants with soapy and “grey looking” water!
How does it work?
After being installed by one of our preferred installer or your plumber, the Aqua2use is connected and the water coming from your laundry, bath or shower flows into the unit. The greywater is filtered through the unique 4 Stage filtration system stage. The level detecting pump then pumps the filtered water into your irrigation system. This all happens automatically.
What can I connect my unit to?
You can connect your unit to any grey waste water from your house, that includes the water coming from your laundry, bath and shower. This EXCLUDES water from the kitchen sink, dishwashers and toilets, which is classed as black water. Check your local regulations with your plumber or local water authority.

What do I need before I connect my unit?
You will need a 110 volt power outlet. The unit comes with a 16′ long extension cord that is ready to plug right into your GFI outlet.

Why can’t I connect it to my sink in the kitchen?

How effective are the filters?
The Aqua2use has over 108 sqft of surface area ensuring the best filtration available for recycled greywater.

Independent laboratory tests have shown that the Aqua2use can remove up to 90% of suspended solids.
There is nothing on the market that comes close to this amount of filtration.
How often do I have to replace or clean the filters?
The filters are designed to be cleaned over and over so you don’ need to replace them.
