Onsite Wastewater Systems
How they work...
If your home or business is not connected to a central sewer system,
you will need an onsite wastewater system. All your household wastewater
will be collected and treated on the spot (on site).
All onsite systems start with an underground septic tank that receives the wastewater from the house. There, the raw waste naturally separates into settled solids, floating material, and liquid effluent - a process called primary treatment.
Primary treatment is a passive and very reliable process. It provides 70% of the necessary wastewater treatment with no energy input. As long as the tank is watertight, the solids remain in the tank for years, while microorganisms slowly break them down to a fraction of their volume. Every 8-12 years, the remaining solids are pumped out of the tank by a service provider,
Innoflow's AdvanTex treatment system begins with primary treatment, then uses a packed bed reactor to treat to advanced level. The effluent enters the primary tank, the liquid level moves through the biotube filter and is pumped over the packed bed reactor/textile filter, this is where the treatment takes place.The cleaned effluent is then gravity fed into the treated effluent tank (TET tank) ready to be pumped to the disposal area
The AdvanTex system is one of the only treatment systems that cannot disperse effluetn without providing treatment first, there is no way the process can short circuit so even during the unlikely event of a major system malfunction, your disposal field is protected
