IMET® Residential Septic Remediators (RSR) are inserted into existing septic tanks or new underground residential treatment tanks. RSR systems eliminate odor and biomat production, therefore significantly reducing periodic pumping of solids from the treatment tank.
Due to significant reduction in biomat production, these systems reduce plugging of the leach field. The quality of the treated wastewater enables reuse for irrigation and washwater, following disinfection by a UV unit or other disinfection treatments.
High surface area multi-media sustain high concentrations and high diversity of microbial systems
Proprietary aeration design enables highly energy efficient operation
Minimal H2S Odor Using custom-designed RSR systems, housing developments are provided with underground wastewater treatment for cluster homes
The treatment provides residential wastewater with better than required treatment levels such that outfall can be discharged to nearby waterways.
IMET® technologies are also used for custom designed underground and aboveground residential wastewater treatment plants for larger housing developments.
Single-home residence case study: The septic system was overflowing and flooding the area around the D-Box, foul odors were present throughout the area of the septic system and there were two large puddles in the leach field. These issues existed in spite of the fact that two tank pump-outs had been performed in the past 12 months. The owners had been advised that their leach field had failed and should be replaced with a "mound system" if it could not be rejuvenated to a level of satisfactory performance.
An RSR unit was used to primarily eliminate odor and to stop flooding the area around the D-Box. We also investigated the amount of bio-sludge generated in the tanks and observed the effect on the wetness of the leach field. Two months following installation of an RSR unit, no septic tank odor was detected and the area around the D-Box dried completely. We also found that the level of fecal coliform in the D-Box was around 500 cfu/100ml. Results also show that the RSR-augmented septic tank system is no longer contributing to nutrient runoff from excessive amounts of ammonia and nitrate levels.
