Wastewater Treatment for Home Septic Systems

The heart of the system is the AdvanTex® filter, a sturdy and watertight fiberglass basis filled with synthetic textile instead of sand as the filtering media. This is why you can treat the same amount of wastewater in a fraction of the space that a sand filter needs. A filter is an essential part in a septic tank because it keeps solids in the septic tank, preventing any damages to your treatment system, drip system or drain field. By choosing a corrosion-resistant filter and having a large flow area, it will need less maintenance because Biotube Effluent Filter has 2-7 times the flow area. Even during high-flow conditions, AdvanTex® will always provide reliable treatment and with the odorless effluent, it is great for reuse applications.

How Does ATU Work For Home Septic Systems?

Since people began to process their sewage rather than getting rid of it, one of the most reliable, inexpensive, and oldest waysto do this is by using a common septic tank for primary treatment. A common residential septic tank provides the primary treatment while AdvanTex® filter provides the “polish” before discharge. A septic tank is technically a big spot on the sewer line that accommodates a quiet ambience for sewage and debris to settle and clarify, naturally. Normally, organisms that are in sewage continue to break down, eventually turning into gas and clarified liquid prior to moving forward to its final disposal, all happening naturally without any moving parts.

Other septic systems try to force this break down process by extended aeration, using fans and blowers to stir up and mix air with the primary sewage, keeping the solid matter in suspension for treatment. This is done by several moving parts and if any of these parts begin to fail, very little or no treatment is done. In most places of Alaska, residents usually do not have the advantages of ground disposal, so a synthetic drain field that is able to provide an environment for this natural process. By using electric, it is easy to control this final state of treatment while confining it into a very small space. The only moving parts are stable water well pumps that move the processed liquid around and then send the disinfected, clean water to the disposal site. You can think of  ATU like a drain field in a box!
