The RECEPTION CELL is the first of a series of botanical cells.
At the end of cell two the Grey Water is forced to go through a peatmoss filter
which helps reduce the nitrate loading of the water. This filter is organic and never has to be replaced. EXHIBIT G
The Grey Water moves from cell to cell by gravity until it ends up at the deepest of the cells - cell three in this case.
The make up of these botanical cells is a rubber lined trench with gravel base for water movement and earth on top for structuring plants. The plants oxygenate the water cleaning it up enough for flushing the toilet thus conserving water and reducing the overall volume of sewage. EXHIBIT G
A small pump panel (EXHIBIT F) exists at the end of the line and facilitates pumping
Grey Water up from the bottom of the last cell and back to flush the toilets on demand when the toilet is flushed.
A second pump is operated from here that uses excess power from the power system to
facilitate recirculating the Grey Water back through the system thus continuing the oxygenation and cleaning of the water for clear flushing. - EXHIBIT F
If this system were to get too full, it can be pumped into the Black Water system and/or can be directed into the municipal sewage system. We have found that there is a balance between flushing and bathing so that this overflow is seldom if ever necessary.
Sun is directed down into the greenhouse where these botanical cells occur to facilitate plant growth and thus sewage treatment.
There is a valve in the reception cell that facilites absolute by pass of this system
and allows the Grey Water all to go into the municipal sewage mains thus providing a fail safe of sorts - this is assuming the municipal system is always in tact which is questionable in the future.
