A Permanent Solution for safe onsite waste water treatment.
The Ecoflo® Biofilter is a peat-based biofiltration system designed to protect public health and the environment. Conventional septic systems treat wastewater using sand, gravel or natural soil, whose quality and availability vary from one site to the next. The Ecoflo® Biofilter uses sphagnum peat moss, a natural filtering medium of uniform quality that is ideal for removing and retaining contaminants until they are broken down. The compact design allows optimum use of any property.
The process is simple: wastewater from the septic tank flows into the Ecoflo® Biofilter and is evenly distributed over the surface of the peat by a patented system with no electrical requirements. The waste water is clarified as it percolates down through the peat, and the treated effluent is then dispersed for infiltration into the native soil or discharged into a watercourse.
The installation site is dictated by local regulatory standards governing setbacks for onsite wastewater treatment systems. The size of the absorption area depends on the number of bedrooms in the home and soil permeability. The depth of installation depends on the soil type and groundwater level. Together, these factors determine the type of installation.
The Ecoflo® Biofilter is a permanent solution for safe residential, communal and commercial onsite wastewater treatment. This system is ideal for:
- New construction
- Replacement of failing systems
- Small lots
- Areas of poor soil percolation
- High water tables
