An aerobic treatment system or ATS, often called an aerobic septic system, is a small scale sewage treatment system similar to a septic tank system, but which uses an aerobic process for digestion rather than just the anaerobic process used in septic systems. These systems are commonly found in rural areas where public sewers are not available, and may be used for a single residence or for a small group of homes.

Although there have been small scale “home Aerobic systems” in the US for 50 years their use has been limited, in part because of the popularity of septic systems, which relatively inexpensive and easy to maintain. However, as soil changes and perk standards become more stringent, more and more properties are no longer well suited for septic systems.

Aerobic Systems are increasingly being installed as replacements for older worn-out septic systems as well as in new construction.

  • Aerobic Systems have several advantages:
  • Can provide a higher level of treatment than a septic system
  • Helps protect valuable water resources where septic systems are failing
  • Provides an alternative for sites not suited for septic systems
  • May extend the life of a drain field
  • May allow for a reduction in drain field size
  • Reduces ammonia discharged to receiving waters

Multi-Flo is the premier wastewater treatment unit Available for residential use. It’s secret: sufficient Aeration to treat the most troublesome wastewater And 30 filter bags that provide 132 ft. sq. of filtration Surface. The result: Multi-Flo units produce anEffluent that has less than 5 mg/L CBOD and TSS and a fecal coliform counts that average 203 cfu/100 mL –- a whopping 99.999% disinfected –based on Independent studies at the University of Wisconsin.

In practice, Multi-Flo units regularly produce effluent that have less than 50 cfu/100 mL. No other residential wastewater treatment units can compare. Examine this cross-section of a Multi-Flo Unit. Water enters the unit through the 4-inch PVC pipe that is attached to dwelling or building being served. The aerator at the bottom of the unit draws air through the clear plastic tube and into the reactor chamber, where it mixes with the water. The 30 white filter bags provide filtration at a normal 100 micron size, assuring you of the cleanest effluent possible. The white PVC pipe also supports a sensor array to alert you and service personnel should a problem with the unit occur
