"Dreamhouse" in Atlanta, US

Keri and Brian Fosse were building their dream home in the heart of Atlanta. It turns out that because of their lot location on a hill, the cost to run a city water line to the house was quite high. Their solution was to have Ecovie install a water system with no city water connection at all. Designed for 5 inhabitants, the system provides clean rainwater as the primary water source. ​

Rainwater is filtered through two PURAIN DN100 pre-filters and stored in two 3,000 gallon (11,300 litre) tanks. ​ This water is treated to potable standards using sediment filtration, UV, and carbon filtration. Laundry, shower, and bathroom sink water is captured as greywater for treatment in an AQUALOOP System 6 with one membrane. AQUALOOP treated water is used for toilet flushing and the cold water in the laundry ​ delivered with a RAINMASTER Eco 10.​

Extra water goes outdoors to a tank for watering plants along with rainwater tank overflow. With the latest low flow fixtures and AQUALOOP greywater recycling, the family expects to use only 20-30 gallons per person per day indoors (75-115 lpd). Compared to a standard city water hook up, the Fosse's will be saving around $2,000 per year on their water bill and have avoided the high cost of running a city water hook up. Overall, the project makes total financial sense all while using smart and sustainable water management practices!
