  • Low operating cost
  • Able to dispense treated waste water directly through a gravel pad beneath the Puraflo system
  • Modular system makes expansion easy, which is especially nice for residential developments or commercial developers

How does Puraflo® Peat Biofilter work?

Following a septic tank containing an effluent (exit) filter, wastewater is time-dosed into the Puraflo wastewater treatment system. Time-dosing is an important aspect of the design that protects the drain field (your land) and ensures high wastewater treatment performance, with ammonia levels of less than 5 mg/l. The lower the contaminant levels the better! For sites where no power is available a siphon system can be utilized for time-dosing.

Puraflo peat "fibre" is imported from the Republic of Ireland and has a proven longer life expectancy compared to other "moss" media. Peat fiber is largely made up of the un-decomposed roots of bog cotton and bog sedges. Peat serves as excellent growth medium for microorganisms and is a durable media with long life expectancy.

Advantages and key benefits of a Peat Fiber Biofilter are numerous.

  • Conditions facilitate growth of microorganisms
  • “Green” by nature
  • Ability to disperse the treated effluent directly through a gravel pad underneath the bio-filter
  • Can eliminate or reduce mounded systems
  • Odor free
  • Certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 40
