Grey water is defined as waste water from the kitchen, toilet, and

dishwashing. This grey water can be purified using filtration process so that it can be

used for other purposes. In order to get optimum quality of output filtration process,

the combination of filter material are essential. The aim of this study is to create a

kitchen waste water sand filter with a membrane. Kitchen waste water that was taken

from residential students University Tun Hussein Onn Malaysia Pagoh campus. Silica

sand, activated carbon, fiber and membrane are the material used for this filtration

system. For this study, a total of 7 sample of kitchen waste water are used in order to

get the best result with two different types of filter. For the overall test, all the filtering

systems function well, leaving a favorable impression with the pure colour of the

output water. The results show that Filter 1 that contains fine sand is the most suitable

filter in filtering waste water as Ph, TDS and the color of the water after the filtering

show a better result
