‘Low power, High treatment!’
High Treatment Levels
These systems exceed minimum requirements for secondary wastewater treatment; in fact it is recognized as an advanced secondary treatment system. This makes it more readily accepted by councils and engineers.
The Econotreat has proven performance at the National Testing Facility. Enjoy the peace of mind, knowing that your system will perform effectively for years to come.
The system is broken down into two smaller components rather than a single large one. This allows greater flexibility around the installation, and the use of smaller machinery. It also allows for different configurations, depending on what the client is needing to work around,
Better for Irrigation
Econotreat system deliver consistently effective treatment, this reduces the amount of contaminants entering your irrigation system; increasing it’s lifespan significantly, and saving you from future replacement costs.
How Aerated Treatment Works
Domestic or on-site aerated sewage treatment systems take the outflow from a normal septic tank to treat it using natural biological processes. But to consume and break down organic material, the bacteria require a large and steady amount of oxygen. Aerated wastewater treatment systems introduce this needed oxygen using electricity-driven pumps or air blowers. The air is bubbled past blocks with a large surface area, specially engineered for prolific growth of bacteria. This type of organism is known as aerobic bacteria, which breaks down waste must faster than anaerobic bacteria. Anaerobic bacteria are found in septic tanks, where oxygen is lacking; these bacteria will slowly break down solid matter over many years.
With aeration treatment, such systems can process and recycle wastewater efficiently at high levels of treatment. They help families reduce their water usage and contribute to a greener New Zealand.
Projects Using Econotreat
The Econotreat was perfect for this family home. With higher volumes of waste and council requirements of secondary treatment, they needed a system that would provide a consistently high treatment. Along with the wastewater we also supplied and installed the water tanks, water pump, water filter and all the drainage.
