Product Description

Biolytix Biopod BF6

The Biolytix Biopod – Naturally aerated wastewater treatment

Price promise…We’ll match any competitor’s price* Terms & Conditions

At the heart of the Biolytix wastewater treatment process is the BioPod.  The BioPod is a unique and patented method of treating household wastewater to a level that is suitable for beneficial irrigation of lawns & gardens.  The BioPod works by mimicking the way nature breaks down waste which is far more efficient and less energy intensive than conventional wastewater treatment.

Why use high energy machines when nature can do the work for us?

Inside the Biopod

Inside the BioPod is a layered filter bed, engineered to quickly separate the solids from the liquid sewage and to provide a stable environment for the micro and macro organisms that break down the separated solid waste into a 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 often associated with septic tanks and with mechanically aerated wastewater systems. The organisms feed on the waste exactly as they would in nature. By consuming the waste the organisms remove the vast majority of contaminants from the wastewater.

The engineered ecosystem inside the Biolytix BioPod can be sustained indefinitely with solid material repeatedly broken down and resulting humic material becoming a part of the filter and part of the filtration process.  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). Near the bottom of the tank is a geofabric layer, which removes any residual fine solids larger than 80 micron size. This 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.

A tiny “fish tank” air pump for ventilation

A major advantage of the Biolytix Biopod is that it is not reliant on complex or expensive machinery to run. It has a minute, but robust, low energy and low volume air pump which ensures the ambient air in the BioPod is constantly refreshed providing an abundance of available oxygen supply for the aerobic organisms that do all the work in the filter.  It blower only consumes 0.12 kW hours per day (approximately 3 cents per day) which is very low compared to other conventional aerated wastewater systems, which typically consume 10 to 20 times this.  In addition to this the air pump is whisper quiet. We have field and factory tested installed BioPod and recorded maximum noise of less than 40dB from a distance of just 1m. By comparison the blowers used on aerated wastewater systems can be very noisy and can operate 24 hours a day.

 An industrial strength irrigation pump

In this middle of the treated wastewater compartment is the disposal pump which operates on demand (typically less than 30 minutes per day) to dispenses treated effluent from the BioPod out to the irrigation system. The disposal pump is powerful enough to pump more than 50m vertically which allows even the most topographically challenging sites to be irrigated.

A single, compact tank

All wastewater treatment is completed in a single, lightweight, polymer tank which makes the BioPod the most compact biological treatment system in the world that we know of. The single light weight tank means that it is it easier and cheaper to transport, less disruptive to install and is visually unobtrusive when installed in your backyard.

Despite the light weight the polymer tank is tough and is engineered to exceed all the durability requirements in the Australia New Zealand septic tank standard 1546.1.

To put the relative size in perspective a typical sand filter system (with a septic tank, sand filter bed and pump chamber) would physically take up an area approximately 9 times larger than the Bio-Pod. A typical aerated system will require an area 2 to 4 times the size of the BioPod.

Audible-Visual Alarm

The BioPod is extremely reliable but has an audible and visual alarm installed to let you know of any irregularities within the system.

Biolytix BioPod only requires one annual service

No matter what wastewater treatment system you buy, you must comply with local Council regulations. These regulations require servicing of all on-site wastewater systems in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications and that the work is to be undertaken by an accredited technician.

The BioPod is so reliable it only needs one service annually to ensure it is performing well as opposed to quarterly servicing requirements for most other systems (Note: Some Councils require a minimum of two services per year regardless of the type of wastewater system).

Why use high-energy mechanical aerators up to 24 hours a day to inject oxygen into wastewater – when the energetic worms and other organisms in the Bio-Pod will continually treat the wastewater using the oxygen from the ambient air in the Bio-Pod?

Letting nature do the aeration on a typical on-site wastewater system eliminates more than 1000kWhours per year….equivalent to watching TV 10 hours each day and reduces your carbon footprint by more than 1 tonne of CO2 per year.

An Environment Bay of Plenty Council trial of seven major sewage systems showed Biolytix used by far the least electricity of all of them.
The Council report on the Bio-Pod stated:

“One outstanding aspect of this system was its low electricity usage. It used as little as 5% or less of the electricity of some other systems measured.”
