Why Ecoflo uses coconut husk fragments to treat wastewater?
How Ecoflo works
The principle is simple. The Ecoflo is a passive system (requires no energy) that uses a filtering media made of natural organic matter to treat wastewater. This patented biofilter acts as a physical barrier that retains pollutants. The treatment requires no electricity and the owner has nothing specific to do to operate or maintain the system, other than complying with the specifics of a biological system like the Ecoflo and its installation design criteria (e.g., flows).
The wastewater arriving from the septic tank is directed to the Ecoflo Biofilter, where it flows into a tipping bucket that alternately pours it on distribution plates located on either side of a central support.
This distribution system requires no energy to operate and ensures an equal distribution of the wastewater over the entire surface of the filtering media. Next, the water trickles down through the Ecoflo Biofilter. The water thus treated is finally released into the environment, either after having passed through a polishing field located directly under or next to the Ecoflo or directly into a waterway (where conditions permit).
