Biolytix BioPod

Biolytix BioPod Award Winning Naturally Aerated Wastewater Treatment

Biolytix BioPod

Organisms feed on waste exactly as they would in nature.

By consuming the waste the organisms remove the vast majority of contaminants from the wastewater.

The engineered ecosystem inside the BioPod can be sustained indefinitely with solid material repeatedly broken down and resulting humic material becoming a part of the filter and part of the filtration process. The worms and other treatment organisms inside simply breed and replenish themselves. Because of the relative lack of mechanical components in the filter bed the BioPod only needs one annual service (most competing systems require 3-4 services each year).

Treatment levelSecondary, Tertiary/UV
ApplicationOff-grid, tiny homes, Baches, Residential homes, Commercial, community
A Tiny “Fish Tank” Air Pump For Ventilation

A major advantage of the BioPod is that it is not reliant on complex or expensive machinery to run. It has a minute, but robust, low energy and low volume air pump which ensures the ambient air in the BioPod is constantly refreshed providing an abundance of available oxygen supply for the aerobic organisms that do all the work in the filter. It blower only consumes 0.12 kWhours per day (approximately 3 cents per day) which is very low compared to other conventional aerated wastewater systems, which typically consume 10 to 20 times this. In addition to this, the air pump is whisper quiet. We have field and factory tested installed BioPod and recorded maximum noise of less than 40dB from a distance of just 1m. By comparison, the blowers used on aerated wastewater systems can be very noisy and can operate 24 hours a day.

An Industrial Strength Irrigation Pump

In this middle of the treated wastewater compartment is the disposal pump which operates on-demand (typically less than 30 minutes per day) to dispenses treated effluent from the BioPod out to the irrigation system. The disposal pump is powerful enough to pump more than 50m vertically which allows even the most topographically challenging sites to be irrigated.

Audible-Visual Alarm

The BioPod is extremely reliable but has an audible and visual alarm installed to let you know of any irregularities within the system.
