Say Goodbye to Septic Tank Hassles with the Biodigester
The biodigester septic tank offers several advantages over traditional septic systems. One advantage is cost, as installing a biodigester septic tank is cheaper than constructing a traditional septic tank. Excavation and drainage trenches may be required, but there is no need to pay for regular emptying.
Biodigester septic tanks are also more environmentally friendly, producing no foul odors and allowing water to soak into the surrounding soil, increasing underground water levels and improving soil fertility and crop production.
They also do not discharge wastewater into streets, making them safer and cleaner. In terms of structure and design, biodigester septic tanks are made of reinforced concrete, making them stronger than plastic or brick septic tanks.
They also come with enzymes and are small and circular in shape, able to withstand pressure and stress without cracking. Biodigester septic tanks are also eco-friendly, take up less space, and do not produce foul odors.
They have been approved and recommended by the National Environment Management Authority and the Ministry of Water and Irrigation and come with a 5-year warranty. They have also created job opportunities in their production and installation.
Biodigester septic tanks have several advantages over traditional septic systems as summarized below:
- They are more cost-effective to install. Biodigester septic tanks are cheaper than traditional septic tanks, and do not require regular emptying, saving additional costs.
- They have a positive impact on the environment. Biodigester septic tanks produce no foul odors, and the water produced from the anaerobic digestion process soaks into the surrounding soil, increasing underground water levels and improving soil fertility. In addition, there is no wastewater discharge in streets, making the environment cleaner and safer.
- They have a strong structure and design. Biodigester septic tanks are built from reinforced concrete, making them stronger than plastic or brick septic tanks. They are also small and circular in shape, able to withstand pressure and stress without cracking.
- They take up relatively small space and produce no foul odors. They are eco-friendly and have full approval and recommendation from the National Environment Management Authority and the Ministry of Water and Irrigation. They also come with a 5-year post-installation warranty covering faults from the manufacturer.
- They create job opportunities. The increasing demand for biodigester septic tanks has created employment opportunities both directly and indirectly.
Parts Of A Biodigester Septic System
The biodigester septic system consists of a grease interceptor, a biodigester tank, and a soakage drain.
The grease interceptor separates wastewater into greywater and blackwater. Greywater is sewage from kitchen sinks and bathrooms and contains oils, fats, grease, and detergents. It is chemically unstable and is directed to the grease interceptor to remove the oils before being sent to the soak pit.
Blackwater is sewage that has come into contact with fecal matter and is directed to the biodigester tank.
In the biodigester tank, anaerobic bacteria feed on the fecal waste to remove pathogens and treat the blackwater. The solid waste matter settles at the bottom of the tank through sedimentation and decomposes into water and gas through biological activity.
The soakage drain is a tank where the treated water collects and percolates into the ground.
Biodigester septic tanks provide a reliable and low-maintenance sanitation solution.
