What’s a Biodigester?
A Biodigester septic tank which is usually small in size, digests or decomposes toilet and animal/poultry waste biologically.
The word “Bio” comes into the picture as a result of the naturally sourced materials used during the construction and Installation process.
The biodigester, as it’s generally being called, uses anaerobic sewage system that never gets exhausted as it completely decomposes toilet waste within 48 hours, keeping the septic box always dry and empty.
Whenever the water closet is flushed, the biodigester processes and filters the toilet waste through grades of porous granites, biological filters, treated fibres infused with environmentally-friendly bacteria for degrading human waste.
There are several advantages over the traditional septic tank which includes;
Never requiring to evacuate sewage as it will never get full.
Very portable in size and can be constructed anywhere in your premises without being noticed. At first sight, one will think it’s a chamber.
No foul smell and doesn’t contaminate ground water.
No cockroach infestation.
It can last for as long as the house stands.
It requires little or no maintenance except it’s blocked with sanitary pads, baby diapers, nylon and other non-degradable items. Simple solution is to open and remove whatever isn’t supposed to go into the biodigester.
Please note that the biodigester is not designed to process kitchen and bathroom waste water except toilet wastes.
(For the kitchen and bathroom waste water, a separate soakaway must be provided for that)
