When dirty water from taps, toilets, shower etc gets flushed down, instead of going out through drains to the sewage, the water gets diverted into the machine. Then the mechanism in the machine uses built-in heaters to boil the water and separate the dirt, dumping it into a certain package. This results in clean water that can be transported back into the household system to be used for drinking, toilet, or shower. The machine can recycle up to 25 liters of water at a time. Which means 25 liters can circulate in the same household over and over again being useful to different household items.
