Geomatrix Systems SoilAir
SoilAir from Geomatrix Systems intermittently aerates the drainfield/leachfield and surrounding soils rather than constantly aerating wastewater in a tank. This process allows rapid rejuvenation of failed septic systems, extends the life span of new leachfields and enhances treatment, according to the maker. Systems can serve single-family and multifamily homes, as well as challenging and high-strength waste streams found at restaurants, hotels, marinas, laundromats, health care facilities, grocery stores, food processing facilities and convenience stores. 888-764-5247;


Anua BioCoir
The BioCoir recirculating media biofilter from Anua is designed to be simple to install and easy to operate. It provides stable treatment across a broad range of applications, with no constantly running, noisy blowers or motors, according to the maker. It uses a coconut coir media housed in a preassembled pod. Coir refers to the fibers that make up the thick husk of a coconut fruit. The coconut fiber is low cost, an upcycled resource and high in lignin content, which results in a durable material. Pretreated effluent is time-dosed over the media using specially designed helical spray nozzles to provide uniform distribution. Treatment is optimized by recirculating effluent through the media multiple times. It is certified to NSF/ANSI Standard 40, Class I and third-party tested to reduce nitrogen by more than 50%. Residential and commercial configurations are available. 336-547-9338;

BioMicrobics RetroFAST
Both the RetroFAST and RetroFITT-ee (energy-efficient version) units from BioMicrobics are designed to be a simple upgrade to enhance a conventional septic system or renovate a biologically failed septic system. A unit can be installed directly in an existing tank to create an optimized treatment environment using submerged, fixed-film media for microbial growth with an energy-efficient aeration system. It constantly sends effluent that’s rich in dissolved oxygen to the drainfield. Where sites and regulations allow, it can be used in new installations. It is designed to immediately deliver high levels of treatment to help ensure clogging layers never form. 800-753-3278;

Clarus Environmental Fusion  
Clarus Environmental’s Fusion systems are drop-in wastewater treatment units designed for decentralized applications where effluent quality must meet or exceed secondary treatment standards. They are designed for residential, commercial and small community applications and are available in 450- to 4,000-gpd treatment capacities. All models up to 800 gpd are NSF/ANSI Standard 40 certified to produce effluent quality of 9 mg/L CBOD5 and 9 mg/L TSS. The design enables installation without a pretreatment tank, making it suitable for sites with limited space. Effluent disposal options include conventional trenches, dosed systems, drip irrigation or disinfection with direct discharge. 800-928-7867;

Delta Treatment Systems ECOPOD
The ECOPOD for advanced wastewater treatment from Delta Treatment Systems is a series of products that are easy to install, low maintenance and effective in reducing levels of nitrogen, BOD and TSS. The unit is simple in design and can treat 500 to 1,500 gpd for residential systems and is NSF/ANSI 40 and 245 certified. The intratank bioreactor can be inserted into an average-sized round or rectangular concrete, fiberglass or plastic onsite wastewater treatment tank or vault. It uses a fixed-film process that is stable, reliable and robust. It is customizable for individual residential installations, cluster designs and small- to medium-size commercial applications. Fixed film is a preferred treatment process in many areas for onsite wastewater treatment systems, according to the maker. The odorless, quiet system is FHA- and VA-acceptable and is suitable for intermittent usage. Minimum sludge production reduces pumpout frequency and cost, and a remote monitoring system is available. 800-219-9183;

NextGen Septic technology
Treated water exiting NextGen Septic technology meets higher water-quality standards than treated water leaving a typical centralized wastewater treatment plant. The system is suitable for sites traditionally requiring costly drainfield construction due to size restrictions and/or hilly, rocky, clay or sandy soil conditions. It is approved for surface discharge in Kentucky, and it uses a combination of anoxic treatment of the raw wastewater followed by aerobic degradation of the contaminants. An ultrafiltration membrane is used to further treat the water, before being disinfected using ozone. Treated water has less than 15 mg/L of BOD5, less than 2 mg/L ammonia, less than 1 mg/L phosphorus and no TSS. Ozone decomposes to oxygen, which increases the dissolved oxygen level in the discharged water. This treated water can be used for irrigation or to resurrect a clogged leachfield. 513-673 3583;

Norweco Singulair R3
The Singulair R3 water reuse system from Norweco reduces water consumption, reuses treated effluent and recycles water. It provides a solution to chronic water shortages and reduces energy costs associated with water and wastewater treatment, according to the maker. The system quietly, efficiently and automatically treats all incoming wastewater to a high level for restricted indoor and unrestricted outdoor use. It exceeds the effluent requirements of NSF/ANSI Standards 40, 245 and 350. It qualifies for Green Building credits under both the LEED rating system and the National Association of Home Builders ICC 700 National Green Building Standard. By using the R3 system and following local building code, a homeowner can expect to dramatically reduce water usage. 800-667-9326;

Orenco Systems AdvanTex AX-RT Series
The AdvanTex AX-RT Series of advanced wastewater treatment systems from Orenco Systems is designed for system repair and rehabilitation. All interior components are installed, plumbed and adjusted at the factory. Units can be shallowly buried for use between a functional, watertight septic tank and a functioning drainfield. The design includes recirculation, treatment and discharge in a single unit to simplify installation and eliminate the need for additional tanks, basins, risers and lids. The system can be maintained with an annual service call. Filters and textile media are accessible and cleanable, and control panels are touch safe. No blower is needed for the passively vented system. An optional UV disinfection unit is available. 800-348-9843;

Presby Environmental Advanced Enviro-Septic
Advanced Enviro-Septic (AES) from Presby Environmental is a passive onsite wastewater treatment system for residential, commercial and community use that’s designed to remove 99% of wastewater contaminants. It requires no replacement media or additives and no electricity or mechanical devices. The NSF 40 Class 1-certified system treats effluent efficiently, providing long system life and protecting the environment, according to the maker. It quickly and naturally establishes multiple bacterial treatment environments throughout the system that break down and digest wastewater contaminants that leave the septic tank. Following the filtering of suspended solids, it releases highly purified wastewater to the soil, recharging the groundwater and preventing soil and groundwater contamination. It is BNQ certified for secondary and advanced secondary treatment. 800-473-5298;

SeptiTech STAAR filter systems
SeptiTech STAAR (Smart Trickling Anaerobic/Aerobic Recirculating) filter systems are designed for residential and commercial properties with minimal operator oversight while delivering consistent treatment during peak, low or intermittent flows. Using an unsaturated, engineered textile media to treat wastewater that meets strict permit limits, the commercial filter system provides a simple, automatic equalization and clarification process for 500- to more than 150,000-gpd flows. The biological trickling filter technology also maintains low levels of Nitrate-N, with all below-grade components that fit in watertight concrete, plastic or fiberglass tanks. Smart technology allows the system to go into a sleep mode to achieve lower operating costs and power requirements. Systems are ETV-EPA verified and NSF/ANSI Standard 40/245 certified. 800-753-3278;
