BIOLYTIX® WASTEWATER TREATMENT SYSTEM

WARRANTY & MAINTENANCE

Optum are an approved agent and installer for the Biolytix®. As with any wastewater or septic system, the Biolytix requires regular maintenance in order to function properly and remain an optimum environment for the organisms that process the waste. An annual service is required to make sure the system is working correctly and to uphold the product warranty.

The Biolytix is a worm based system. The worms are what process the waste, so it is very important to keep them happy! The worms won't process the following items, so they can't be flushed into the tank:

  • Wipes, plastics and sanitary items or anything non biodegradable.

  • Coffee grinds, onions and citrus.

  • Fat (will also block your irrigation pump).

  • Bleach or disinfectant - only use eco-friendly cleaning products.

  • The tank is designed to process a maximum of 1650L water per day, otherwise the worms could drown
     

WHO IS THE BIOLYTIX BEST SUITED TO?​

If you can follow the above requirements, and you're looking for an eco-friendly waste disposal system which provides irrigation at the same time, a Biolytix will work for you. 
 

COST

To supply and install a Biolytix with a dripline irrigation dispersal field usually ranges from $15,000 - $25,000, depending on a number of factors, e.g. the size and type of dispersal field and site location.

WHAT IS A BIOLYTIX?

The Biolytix is an eco-friendly alternative to a traditional septic tank. Biolytix is a vermiculture (worm-based) secondary treatment wastewater system which uses natural organisms to break down waste, resulting in treated suitably clean water, than can be recycled into a dripline system for irrigation or simply soak into a dispersal field. 

WHY CHOOSE A BIOLYTIX?
  • The Biolytix is an ‘ecosystem in a tank’ which treats the wastewater without needing costly large mechanical aerators to run, repair or replace. This results in up to 90% less energy being consumed than in most aerated sewage treatment systems thereby reducing electricity  costs.

  • Unlike aerated systems, the Biolytix has no smelly septic tank.

  • Recommended servicing every 9 months which is less frequent than other systems on the market.

  • Silent operation. There are no noisy blowers or pumps that can run up to 24 hours every day on other systems.

  • No offensive smells due to the fact that the Biolytix uses an aerobic process with no septic tank and no large blowers.

  • Independently tested in New Zealand and Council approved.

  • Treated wastewater beneficially irrigates lawns and gardens via specialised irrigation incorporating patented technologies for reliability.

  • Small carbon footprint due to negligible methane emissions.

  • 100% New Zealand made by a New Zealand owned company.

  • The most compact, light weight wastewater system on the market.

  • Manufactured from 100% recycled material.

  • Less weight and volume to transport, meaning ideal for sites with difficult access, less excavation and less disruption to your landscape

  4. Supply and Installation
    Once your council consent is through, we'll coordinate the supply and installation of your system from start to finish. The installation takes 1-2 days depending on the size and location of the dispersal field.
