Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How much water can I expect to save if I install a Freylit Water Recycle System?

A: Between 80 and 90% of water can be saved depending on varying site factors. Do not forget to add your water cost and sewage cost savings up as the two are linked on your water bills.

Q: What other savings can I make if I use the Freylit System? 

 A: There is a significant saving on soap usage as between approximately 75% of this is reused depending on how dirty your vehicles are. Maintenance is 6 monthly and there are no consumable filters or chemicals. Many owners maintain the units themselves as the maintenance is so easy. 

Q: If I do not have a sewage connection can I install a Freylit water recycle system?

A: Yes you can. This is called a "closed loop system". We have many sites operating a closed loop system, one of which is Environment Agency operated and they recycle 100% of the water. You would need to contact our technical staff to discuss your site requirements.

Q: Why Conserve Water?

A: Financial reasons, as water companies are raising water and sewage rates Business reasons, as water companies are beginning to mandate reclaim systems before planning permission is granted. Environmental damage to the Earth from extraction of fresh water for consumption ie building of dams, upgrade of infrastructures to meet increased demand cost nearly £1000-2000.00 per meter.  Many of our rivers, wetlands and bays are degraded. This is partly due to the high levels of water extracted, as well as polluted surface runoff and stormwater flushed into them.

Q: Why should I consider a Freylit reclaim/wash water recycling system as opposed to any other manufacturer on the market?

A: Freylit is a dedicated manufacturer and ONLY makes Wash Water Recycling and Oil Water Separators Systems. With almost 10,000 installations world wide, many with very discerning customers, and abiding to very strict environmental parameters, we believe that our quality and pedigree provide the reassurance to our customers that we market professional and truly fully field tested equipment.

Q: How often do I have to perform maintenance on Freylit’s reclaim system, and what is the cost of annual maintenance?

A: With many of our reclaim systems installed with International Oil Companies such as BP, Shell Esso, Mobile, Texaco, maintenance has to be limited and infrequent. We recommend half yearly preventive maintenance that takes NO more than one hour. Our less complicated reclaims can manage on 30 minutes per 6 month service. There are NO expensive filters to change, no regular daily or weekly filters to pull, clean and replace, so the annual maintenance costs are limited to the wages needed to conduct the preventive maintenance quarterly services.

Q: What is the warranty period for Freylit equipment, and can we obtain spares easily?

A: The Freylit Oil Water Separator carries a 5 year warranty on the plates and associated polypropylene items, whilst the Wash Water Recycling System carries a one year warranty. We hold a full inventory of spares in our warehouse and offer an overnight shipping service.

Q: How long does it take to install the Freylit reclaim system?

A: Our 200 ltr per minute reclaim system takes two full days to install and commission, when the wash site has been prepared. Retrofits might take longer depending on the number of existing lines to the underground tanks that are in place.
