Benefits of Biodigester on-site Waste Management System
Biodigester Requires no Exhausting
Compared to traditional septic tanks, the biodigester does not need exhausting. This alone makes the biodigester the better for dealing with sewer.
The exhausting process is obviously an additional cost, not to mention how messy and potentially hazardous it can be.
Biodigester is Cost Friendly Installation
The biodigester sewer system is actually cheaper to install compared to the cost of constructing a normal septic tank and the and soak pit.
For Biodigester, one needs to excavate a hole that is 1.1 meters deep and some trenches. The inspection chambers or manholes required are also few.
The biodigester system requires a small space. Traditional septic tanks require a much deeper hole, and that comes with high costs of excavation. Excavation is also very tricky and expensive in areas with many rocks, swampy areas, or areas with high water tables and areas with very loose soil.
It also takes a short time to install, with the biggest taking a maximum of 7 days, unlike a septic tank that can take at least a month or even longer depending on the terrain of the place, i.e., rocky, swampy areas are challenging to do a septic tank.
Biodigester is Bad Smell Free
This biodigester on-site waste management system does not emit any bad odor whatsoever. It’s airtight, being filled with water initially before using guarantees, there is no rotting as happens in the septic, but 100% biodegradation and the process happens under the water.
Septic tanks emit a bad smell because gases are released into the atmosphere and due to rotting.
Biodigester is Safe on the Environment
The bio-digester enhances the environment in many ways, starting with the fact that it does not emit any smell. The water produced is usually soaked back into the ground and therefore increases the amount of water found underground. The same water, rich in nitrogen and other nutrients, can also be used for irrigation or watering gardens. This enhances the fertility of the soil. The French drain should be five meters away from any water source.
Solid Structure and Design of Biodigester
The system is built out of reinforced concrete that is already enzyme, giving it structural strength. It can easily withstand pressure and stress, making it extremely reliable. The tank is small and cylindrical or rectangular and thus, able to withstand pressure from the soil.
This cylindrical design with a continuous wall ensures that stress is uniformly distributed, unlike rectangular designs where pressure is exerted on corners and joints.
The on-site sewer system comes with a 3 years post-installation warranty from the manufacturer, which covers the manufacturer’s defects, unlike a septic tank.
However, it does not mean that it stops working after five years; in fact, the longer the time, the effective and efficient the system becomes because of bacteria’s growth.
Biodigester Uses Minimal Space
It uses a quarter of what you could have used to do a septic tank, and since most of the system is underground, it can be used as parking, driveway way, or grass can be planted over it.
Biodigester is Flexible
Since no exhaustion is needed, the system can be installed on all sides of the project; unlike septic, you have to factor in Exhausters’ accessibility.
Biodigester Requires No Power and Maintenance
Our system does not use power since it works on hydraulics, and no maintenance is needed since it is not mechanical, and the enzyme is only dozed once, and the system runs successfully for a lifetime.
Biodigester doesn’t Cause Health Hazard
Unlike a septic tank that spills raw sewer when filled up or leaked into the environment, which might cause water-borne diseases, my system never does that because it does not fill up and don’t emit raw sewer; thus, the best way to go than septic.
Can I use normal household cleaning chemicals?
All normal products can be used in sensible quantities. Don’t forget that the system works by accelerating the natural sewage degradation process. Some chemicals used are designed to destroy microorganisms. Therefore, using bleaching or antibacterial cleaners may cause a malfunction in the process. You should avoid products containing ammonia where the ‘Consent to Discharge’ has a limit for Ammoniac Nitrogen.
Avoid using significant quantities of grease to enter the biodigester system. A grease trap must be installed to the kitchen drainage only when there is a commercial kitchen (Hotels, Pubs, etc.). The system doesn’t work well with inorganic materials, e.g., condoms, pampers, nylon papers, sanitary pads, etc. We do recommend alternative ways of managing inorganic waste, e.g., the use of Rentokil Bins.
Can the Biodigester system be on a driveway?
The biodigester is not designed to be installed in a driveway unless you ensure that the loading of traffic is carried by some form of support to take the load away from the structure of the Biodigester.
Mechanical Systems of Biodigester
Due to clients changing demands, we have also done some mechanical systems to recycle the waters from our Biodigesters and Grease traps for reuse. This calls for the installation of systems that need maintenance, servicing, and power to operate. In this case, we do a primary Biodigester, which is never serviced, and Waste Water Treatment (Secondary Biodigester), which needs Servicing. For all mechanical gadgets, a one-year guarantee is issued on the same.
