Inside the Biopod
Inside is a layered filter bed, engineered to quickly separate the solids from liquid sewage to provide a stable environment for the micro and macro organisms that break down the separated solid waste into stable humic product. The organisms, including tiger worms introduced to the BioPod on commissioning, ensure the entire filter bed is naturally aerated, eliminating the smell. The organisms feed on the waste exactly as they would in nature.
The worms and other treatment organisms simply breed and replenish themselves. Because of the relative lack of mechanical components in the filter bed the BioPod only needs one annual service (most competing systems require 3-4 services each year). Purified and filtered water is then ready to be pumped into the garden for further polishing and where it can be utilised as a beneficial irrigation resource.
