Tricel Novo IE6+  How does it Work?

This system is suitable for a 4-bedroom home. The Novo is reliable, easy to install, and simple to maintain for all of your wastewater treatment needs.

Stage 1: The wastewater travels to the primary settlement chamber.

Here, the heavier solids drop to the bottom of the chamber, separating from the liquids. The lighter solids float to the top and harden, creating a seal to prevent any odour from escaping. 70% of solids are separated in the stage.

Stage 2: This stage takes place in the aeration chamber.

Naturally occurring bacteria inhabiting specially designed plastic filter media break down the waste, removing it from the liquid. Wastewater passes through the filter media over and over again, purifying the wastewater.

Stage 3: The wastewater flows to the final settlement chamber.

Any remaining bacterial particles separate from the liquid. Any final impurities fall to the bottom of the system and are then pumped back to the primary settlement system. At the end, the remaining liquid now meets the required standards and is ready for discharge to a suitably designed discharge area.
