HYDRALOOP: H300 vs H600 vs cascade

Hydraloop can be implemented from an individual house till a whole neighbourhoud. Each system is based on the principle of the base model, the H300. The H600 is two H300 in one having double the capacity divided by 2 filters which increase the continuous filter capacity. The cascade system combines multiple H300 or H600 systems, making it compact and independent to the efficiency of a single unit.

Practical Standard dimensioning:

  • H300: supports about 5 residents
  • H600: supports about 10 residents
  • Cascade: virtual unlimited

Theoretical Dimensioning:
The standard dimensioning reflects the average use of a machine, which is limited by its filtertank.
Depending on the habits of bathing/showering the capacity can be over- or underdimensioned .

For example: the H300-system can filter max 180L with every session, enough for 3-4 normal showers or 2-3 baths. This means the system can theoretically support 6-8 persons if bathing is spread over the morning and evening. 

Advantages H600 and cascade
The H600 and cascade system have 2 or more parallel filter-systems.
Dividing the grey water filter over multiple filters (instead of 1) allows the system to work continuous and less dependend on the habits of the residents, which decreases the need for smaller dimensioning.

For example: in case of co-housing a H600 (which has 2 filter systems in parallel) could be adviced if both households have other habits (young family vs pensioned residents), even though in terms of # of residents a H300 would be enough.

Bigger systems, higher efficiency
Bigger systems average out habits within connected residents, leading to less over and under capacity and thus pro-rata smaller systems.
