Eljen Geotextile Sand Filter

The GSF, or Geotextile Sand Filter, advanced wastewater treatment and dispersal system from Eljen is designed to provide treatment and dispersal in the same footprint, easy installations and minimal maintenance. This product is used for both commercial and residential applications. Utilizing a two-stage pretreatment process, the geotextile modules apply filtered septic tank effluent to the soil and increase the long-term acceptance rate. Open-air channels within the module support aerobic bacterial growth on the module’s geotextile fabric, surpassing the surface area required for traditional absorption systems. The result is simple installations in a smaller soil absorption area. The system is tested and certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 40. 800-444-1359;

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;
