How it works

close expand

The Puraflo Process

1. Collection

Sewage flows from the home or facility into a watertight septic tank. The solids settle and the liquid effluent flows by gravity through a commercial  effluent filter to a pump basin/tank.

2. Treatment

The liquid effluent is timed dosed at specific intervals into the Puraflo modules, where it is distributed evenly onto the biofibrous peat media. A combination of biological, chemical, and physical processes treat the effluent as it filters through the peat fiber media.

3. Dispersal or Water Reuse

Treated effluent emerges from the Puraflo modules and disperses either into a gravel pad directly below the modules or is collected for dispersal by other methods, including gravel trenches, LPP, drip irrigation or other dispersal methods. Effluent is suitable for reuse.  Chemical or UV disinfection may be required

Tertiary Treatment

Puraflo may be used as a polishing filter for ‘Tertiary Treatment’ applications.  Severe sites, environmentally sensitive sites, sites in watershed protection areas, or areas where effluent will be reused often require enhanced treatment.  This is achieved by combining Puraflo with an existing or new secondary treatment system, typically an aerobic treatment unit.  The secondary treated effluent is dosed to Puraflo polishing filter modules and undergoes a third stage or tertiary treatment.  The combined system will provide very high level pathogen and nutrient reduction.
