Waterloo Biofilter

Waterloo Biofilter uses a patented, highly engineered foam filtration medium that is optimized to treat wastewater passively. The foam creates an environment where naturally occurring bacteria can thrive and remove contaminants found in wastewater.

Our system provides both physical filtration and biological treatment of wastewater in one step – ensuring polluting elements are removed before water is returned to the natural environment.

Shed Biofilters have a base constructed of permanent wood foundation board, are spray foam insulated for winter operation, and are clad in attractive, stained, weather sealed wood siding. Sheds are designed to work in the most difficult of sites; they are installed above ground to avoid bedrock and high water table problems, and they have the smallest advanced septic system footprint fully approved in Ontario with their compact design and no distribution piping required in the disposal bed.

Flat Bed Biofilters are constructed of strong yet lightweight shells containing the patented Biofilter filter media. Flat Bed treatment units are modular; additional Flat Beds can be installed in parallel or series to increase the total treatment capacity of the septic system. Wastewater is dosed to the Flat Beds via a small pump chamber with an electric pump. Treated effluent gravity-drains out the bottom of the Flat Beds and flows directly into a disposal bed beneath.

HDPE Tank Biofilters High density polyethylene (HDPE) Tank treatment units from Waterloo Biofilter are constructed of a very high strength, durable, and seamlessly blow-moulded high-density polyethylene tank. HDPE Tanks are pre-plumbed at our factory, filled with the Waterloo Biofilter filtration medium, and shipped to site fully assembled. Treated effluent is pumped from the HDPE Tank to a small, shallow soil disposal system. HDPE Tanks operate in recirculation mode for increased nitrogen removal. These units are lightweight for ease of transport, and come pre-assembled for an easy, ‘dig-and-drop’ installation. The only moving parts are two high-quality, energy efficient 1/2 horsepower effluent pumps that operate intermittently throughout the day.

Basket Biofilters are constructed of a rigid steel mesh that is coated for corrosion protection. Baskets are filled with the patented Waterloo Biofilter filter medium, shipped to site, and placed in a concrete or fiberglass tank. Baskets are sized for locally available tanks to reduce costs for the installer and homeowner. Treated effluent is pumped from the Biofilter treatment unit to a small disposal bed, leaching field or trench. Basket Biofilters operate in recirculation mode for increased nitrogen removal. The only moving parts are two high-quality, energy efficient 1/2 horsepower effluent pumps that operate intermittently throughout the day.
