Sandcel Sand Polishing Filter

Sandcel is a sand polishing filter designed to “EPA Wastewater Treatment and Disposal Systems Serving Single Houses (p.e. ≤ 10) 2009” standards.
It provides a dual function of polishing the effluent from a wastewater treatment system and disposing of the treated liquid into groundwater.

Testimonials

We just wanted to give some positive feedback for Norbert who just serviced our Puraflo system.

He has just completed the service on our system and we want to pass on our praise for his thorough work. He was extremely helpful in explaining the issue with the system and above all, it was just great to encounter someone with such a nice attitude.

We shall highly recommend Tricel.

Very professional, good communicator and first class.

I am delighted that I chose to install a Tricel plant in 2009 because the outflow is practically clear water and I am confident it will work reliably indefinitely. It is the perfect solution for our site which has no soakage worth talking about in winter.

I would be happy to recommend Tricel to anybody or show the site.

Your engineer Norbert carried out our first service on our Tricel system yesterday.

We would like to say what an excellent representative of your Company; informative, approachable, together with great communication skills in passing on his knowledge of the system to a couple of novices.

We had a positive experience throughout our interaction with Tricel.
