E-Z Treat system creates environment for bacterial growth

E-Z Treat recirculating synthetic media filter systems are designed to create the ideal setting for bacterial growth to flourish. They are manufactured to treat sewage across multiple applications and for flows of 100 to 100,000 gpd. Systems are engineered for a variety of wastewater situations, including multifamily residences, RV parks, campgrounds, schools, churches, restaurants and shopping centers.

“E-Z Treat is one of the two blackwater onsite systems that were tested and listed for NSF 350 through NSF,” says Michael Stidham, vice president of E-Z Treat. “It is the first and only biological and nonchemical system approved for water reuse.” NSF 350 means a more efficient use of water, as it certifies the effluent for reuse in nonpotable activities such as toilet flushing, car washing, greenhouse use, cooling towers and irrigation.

The system uses natural biological processes to break down waste. When septic-treated effluent first enters the recirculating chamber, it is dosed passively through an active film matrix. “The styrene media is very uniform, providing ample surface area for bacterial growth, and it is designed to accommodate optimum air and liquid flow for sufficient nitrification,” Stidham says.

Through a series of bypass valves and recirculation pumps, the effluent is continuously circulated through the media, where it can exit through a bypass valve and flow into a gravity drainfield or into a pump chamber for dispersal options.

The technology has been used effectively for more than 20 years and is the result of years of research and development, according to Stidham.

“E-Z Treat was developed by direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Onsite Wastewater Treatment Systems Technology Sheet 11 for advanced secondary treatment,” Stidham says. “It is a simple, self-contained system with few components to include one or more E-Z Treat pods, a recirculation pump, control panel, floats and a bypass valve.” 866-753-4770; www.eztreat.net.
