MicroSepTec EnviroServer ES
The MicroSepTec EnviroServer ES series utilizes five chambers to achieve primary settling, treatment and clarification in one tank. The units use a moving-bed biological reactor made specifically for the residential market. The first compartment of the system is the primary clarifier for settling sludge and solids. The second section houses the first of two aeration chambers and contains biomedia providing surface area to promote a healthy population of microorganisms. The third compartment is used for further aeration to amplify the growth of nitrifying bacteria and the process of nitrification. The fourth chamber is the final clarifier where suspended solids settle out. Wastewater is then recirculated back to the primary clarifier in the first compartment, which contains enough carbon to promote denitrification removing high levels of nitrate. Clarified water then moves through an effluent filter before entering the fifth compartment, an effluent chamber for storage. 877-473-7842;

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 ultra-filtration membrane further treats 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;
