Abstract
The aim of this research is to identify the effect of greywater filter composition sequence toward the water acidity level (PH). This research includes the production of greywater filter tools and water laboratory testing. Waste water from households were used as water samples. The samples were tested twice using PH meter tool which used water before and after filtration. The materials of filter are of sand, gravel, palm fiber and charcoal with the thickness of each layer which is 5 cm. The result indicate that: (1)the different sequences of greywater filter composition result different water’s acidity level (PH), (2) The optimum composition which produce the lowest PH level has the arrangement of gravel, sand, palm fiber, and charcoal, sequentially. As an addition the composition sequence which produces the highest PH level has the sequential arrangement of sand, charcoal, palm fiber, and gravel.
