Nature, not machinery, works hard - so you benefit!
"There are over a million worms in the top humus layer of the BioPod – all waiting for their morning cafe latte." – Dean Cameron, Inventor and Founder of Biolytix.
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 1000kW hours 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.” - On-site Wastewater Treatment System Environmental Discharge Performance Appraisal May 2007. Environmental Bay of Plenty Regional Council.
The BioPod harnesses the energy in the waste (including the sewage, toilet paper and food waste) to nourish the organisms that break down the waste. Nothing is wasted! Contact Davies Plumbing & Drainlaying in Nelson for more details.
