What is a Hydro-Action Septic System?
The Hydro-Action Septic System harnesses the digestive power of aerobic bacteria by providing oxygen to effectively treat wastewater.
The basic system contains three tanks that each perform a vital role in the treatment process. They are the Pretreatment Tank (often referred to as the septic tank or trash trap), Aeration Compartment and the Clarification Compartment.
When wastewater leaves the home it will first enter the Pretreatment phase in the septic tank. Solids and other materials that are slow to breakdown are collected in this tank. And the effluent flows into the next phase of the process.
The wastewater then moves from the Pretreatment Tank into the Aeration Chamber. In this phase an air pump supplies oxygen to the wastewater. When force fed oxygen, the aerobic bacteria are energized to multiply and digest waste. This effectively cleans the wastewater without the use of chemicals or filters.
The oxygenated effluent enters into the Clarification Compartment next. Here the clarified water is separated from any remaining solids in a conically-shaped area. Any remaining solids settle and return for further aeration and digestion.
The remainder of the system is site-dependant. If the septic system discharges directly into the environment a disinfection unit is mandatory. This will likely be a UV system where the effluent will be forced to pass by a UV light bulb where any harmful bacteria is eliminated before it is released into the environment.
