Q. CAN DISHWASHING WATER BE USED AS GREY WATER?
No, dishwashing water is considered to be black water, because it contains high concentrations of food residues, micro-organisms and chemicals. Dish washing water should be disposed of into the sewer.
Q. DOES SUNLIGHT DISHWASHING LIQUID NEED BUBBLES TO CLEAN?
No, the bubbles are only for aesthetic purposes.
Q. WHAT AFFECTS DISHWASHING PERFORMANCE?
- The main factor in non performance for dish washing liquids is metals present in the water being used.
- Over the past few years Australia’s water has been depleting quickly, this has caused a concentration of metals in the water that is left. As the water is evaporated the concentration of metal ions within this water has also increased.
- Contaminants in the air have also increased over the years, these contaminants also include metals. When it rains, these contaminants are incorporated into the rain droplet on the journey groundward.
- The roofing materials, plumbing and storage unit used to capture and transport the water can also play a part in the metal content of the water.
