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. ​

From June 2022, a new generation of Puraflo modules is available. It uses coconut fibre as media instead of peat and provides a very high treatment efficiency.

Puraflo modules 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. Discover more information about Tricel Puraflo

Coconut Fiber

Where can I buy replacement Peat fibre for my Puraflo?

Frequently asked questions


What is maintenance and servicing?

Part of the servicing can be directly done by yourself. However, the main part of the maintenance and servicing must be done by a professional.

Tricel offers an annual maintenance contract which is a full service every year to guarantee the efficiency of the system gets maintained. For the smooth running of the operation, service personal must get accommodated with unobstructed access to the tank.

Why is maintenance important?

In Ireland, there are approximately 500,000 wastewater treatment systems and most of them are septic tanks. Lack of tank desludging and maintenance of wastewater treatment system is an issue as this poses risks to health or environment.
