Tricel Puraflo module

What is a Tricel Puraflo system and how does it work?

Tricel Puraflo modules are used after a septic tank as a secondary treatment plant or after a wastewater treatment plant as a tertiary treatment plant. The Puraflo modules use Peat fibre to treat the effluent; they provide a very high treatment efficiency of 98% BOD.

They are ideal for use in areas of outstanding natural beauty where effluent quality is paramount, as well as for holiday homes, campsites and schools with intermittent usage. Initially supplied by Bord Na Mona (ANUA), the Puraflo system is supplied now by Tricel.

Tricel Puraflo maintenance: service agreements available

Maintenance required for a Tricel Puraflo is very low. Nonetheless, we would advise putting in place a yearly maintenance service to ensure that your Tricel Puraflo continues to perform to the same high standards throughout its lifetime.

Available in a one year to a ten-year contract, starting at €195, Tricel’s service agreement covers travel, the service and the labour cost of servicing only. Other labour costs are excluded, as are all replacement parts.

During routine servicing, the service technician performs a series of checks and procedures.

The checks performed during the Tricel Puraflo service agreement are as follows:

  • That general condition of the pump chamber is good.
  • The pipework inside the pump chamber is secure.
  • The pipework in the sampling chamber is secure.
  • The lid of the sampling chamber is in good condition.
  • The condition of the media is inspected.
  • The system is inspected for any apparent non-wastewater infiltration into any compartment (at the time of inspection).
  • The effluent filter in the septic tank is checked and cleared of any blockages if required (only applies to a secondary system).
  • General appearance and condition of the treatment system and the surrounding ground area are good.


The procedures followed during the Tricel Puraflo service agreement are as follows:

  • Clear the vents in the sampling chamber.
  • Test the electrical control panel and alarm system.
  • Test the pump and float switch.
  • Clear the distribution outlets in the modules of any blockages.
  • The level of the sludge in the septic tank/primary storage chamber is measured.
