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

This is the septic maintenance people you want. These men are highly trained and knowledgeable in every aspect of taking care of our sewer systems. We had our sewer pumped by Lee a few weeks ago, and I didn’t think there was a more courteous, super-hard-working person out there yet. Also knowledgeable about every aspect of sewers. He worked so hard on our sewer [at] my folk’s place before they passed on, and [I] don’t think it ever got pumped. It was scary to see it so full of hard sludge and that had to be broke down to get the job done; with every care, Lee got the job done. We sure can appreciate a person that goes the extra mile and got the job done the right way!! Thanks, Lee and Northland for having a hard-working group of people working for you!!! We now have a permanent company to take care of our sewer. Thanks again!!
