The advantages of Ecoflo filter replacements
Which would you choose: a conventional or combined septic system that must be dug up and scrapped when it fails, or a permanent septic solution with guaranteed performance?
If you chose the lifetime solution, you are not alone.
The Ecoflo biofilter is the number one choice for compact filters, and a big reason why is that it never needs to be moved. That means no holes in your yard – or your wallet – and full freedom to invest in long-term landscaping that makes your property shine.
How do we do it? To understand, first consider how other septic systems work. Most systems filter wastewater through soil, sand, or a combination of sand and synthetic materials. These filtering media are buried and inaccessible, so when they become clogged with wastewater pollutants, the only remedy is to remove and replace the entire system.
We designed the Ecoflo septic system differently. Our solution allows easy access to all system components, including the all-natural filtering medium inside the biofilter. When the filtering medium no longer treats wastewater effectively – usually after 10 to 15 years of use – we replace it with a new one to guarantee your property and the environment are always protected.
The process is fast and simple. It takes just a few hours, requires no excavation, and has zero impact on your landscaping. We promise: your trees, flowerbeds, and manicured lawn are safe with us!
Filtering medium replacements in three easy steps
Let’s take a closer look at what to expect when the time comes for our team to replace the filtering medium in your Ecoflo biofilter.
Step 1: Remove
After opening the lid of your Ecoflo biofilter, our local service partners use a specialized vacuum truck to remove the old filtering medium.
Once the biofilter container is empty, the technicians thoroughly inspect it to ensure that all internal components are in working order.
Step 2: Install
The new filtering medium is compressed in sealed packaging when it arrives on site.
Our service partners add the contents of a few packages to the biofilter and use a tool to evenly distribute the material. By doing so, they promote optimal biofiltration and create an ideal environment for healthy bacterial activity.
The technicians then repeat the installation process until the biofilter container is sufficiently full.
We automatically renew the original warranty on the performance of your Ecoflo biofilter after the new filtering medium is installed. Our guarantee includes:
- no clogging
- no excess sludge
- no substandard treatment performance
Step 3: Compost
When possible, our service partners send the old filtering medium from your Ecoflo biofilter to an organic waste facility.
Because our all-natural filters are made with coconut husk fragments or a combination of coco and peat, they create excellent compost for reforestation and soil stabilization projects.
