ECOPOD-N Advanced Wastewater Treatment Unit
Delta ECOPOD-N Advanced Wastewater Treatment Units are an innovative approach to onsite wastewater disposal where nitrogen reduction is required. The ECOPOD-N technology has been tested under NSF/ANSI 40 and 245 with an average nitrogen reduction of greater than 50% and met and exceeded Class 1 requirements with an average effluent quality of 9 mg/L BOD5 and 8 mg/L TSS.
Delta ECOPOD-N Advanced Wastewater Treatment Unit Features:
• Oxygen is pumped into the system allowing the bacteria thrive and grow in much greater numbers than would occur naturally. This “overpopulation” of bacteria speeds the process of • breaking down the sewage, making it safe for release into the environment.
• ECOPOD-N units significantly reduce BOD, TSS, fecal coliforms, and nutrients in the wastewater.
• Nitrification and denitrification occur in a single tank.
• Features a fixed-film process which is characteristically stable, reliable and sturdy. Fixed-film is a preferred treatment process for onsite wastewater treatment systems.
MicroSepTec has taken the EnviroServer ES Series and redesigned it for commercial strength (CS)applications. Sometimes, the simplest solution is the best and that’s the case with the EnviroServer. The CS Series was engineered to treat commercial high strength wastewater in a small, simple, and economical footprint while providing reliable treatment and superior effluent quality. Simple, because the entire treatment system is in one tank. Simple, because the only moving part is the compressor. Simple, because there is minimal intrusion to the landscape. Simple, because the process is accomplished with aeration and agitation, the same technology as sewer treatment plants. Simply simple!
Most conventional community septic system technologies rely on the underlying soil to help treat wastewater. However, this approach to effluent management can pose serious environmental risks as unfiltered water seeps into the ground. Aquifer contamination, soil erosion, and habitat destruction are just some of the dangers posed by septic systems that use leach fields or other soil-dependent treatment solutions.
These dangers become even more pronounced when trying to treat wastewater for entire communities and municipalities.
Worse still, most municipal & community septic systems carry numerous ongoing costs like maintenance, cleanup, and repair. Covering these expenses isn’t always the best way to use tax dollars.
But Advanced Enviro-Septic® system technology uses a radical new approach to municipal-level wastewater treatment. Each system cultivates a living bacterial ecosystem that removes up to 99% of wastewater contaminants. Thereafter, highly treated wastewater is safely released into the ground.
As a result:
- Water treatment and dispersal occupy the same small footprint.
- Neither the soil nor the groundwater becomes contaminated.
But for growing communities, there are additional benefits of using Advanced Enviro-Septic® system water treatment technology.
Community Septic System Cost
The Advanced Enviro-Septic® system product installs quickly, helping you avoid many of the labor and excavation septic system costs associated with traditional solutions. In addition, Advanced Enviro-Septic® system technology’s low maintenance requirements allow you to reduce or eliminate ongoing septic system costs like servicing and repairs.
These savings represent money you can then divert to other community needs.
Community Septic System Durability
Advanced Enviro-Septic® system pipes are durable, made in the USA of recycled plastic, and won’t break down. The Advanced Enviro-Septic® system even has the ability to be rejuvenated in place to ensure it continues operating at peak performance for many years to come.
Community Septic System Scalability
Advanced Enviro-Septic® system pipes are ideal for individual homes and commercial properties. The technology easily scales to accommodate large flow needs at the municipal level. Start with as many units as required, and add more as your community continues to grow.
Community Septic System Versatility
The Advanced Enviro-Septic® system’s modular design offers one additional benefit –unlimited flexibility. Due to its compact size, this community septic system can be easily installed on sloped terrain, in confined spaces, or along difficult contours. If your community is growing quickly, you can install future septic systems using the “cluster” or “STEP” model.
Community Septic System Dependability
Not sure how to install the Advanced Enviro-Septic system? Not to worry. In addition, our passionate support team is available for any help or guidance you might need in the future. These are highly dependable for your municipal or community septics.

Eljen Geotextile Sand Filter (GSF)
Geotextile fabric and plastic core materials function together to provide vertical surface area for biomat management and oxygen transfer in each GSF Module. In the GSF System, treated effluent is applied to the receiving soil, which increases soil acceptance. Additional filtration and dispersal is provided by the Specified Sand layer under and around the GSF units. This sand layer remains in an unsaturated state allowing for the free flow of effluent and beneficial bacteria.
Eljen Geotextile Sand Filter Key Features:
- Integrated treatment and dispersal
- Site installation flexibility
- Reduced impact on the site
- Easy to handle, lightweight
How the GSF System Works
In lieu of onsite septic leach field systems, Eljen offers its GSF (Geotextile Sand Filter). Testing performed by independent, third parties verifies the performance of the GSF under different conditions, but the system is composed of a primary treatment zone (containing the GSF Module) and a secondary treatment zone (Specified Sand layer). Over the GSF Module is a perforated pipe that distributes septic effluent into the corrugations created by the plastic core.
Primary Wastewater Treatment
- The GSF Module is designed to manage the biomat and relieve the native soil of the burden of treatment and biomat development.
- Aerobic bacteria can grow on the GSF Module’s geotextile fabric interface thanks to open-air channels within the module. This promotes oxygen absorption in the system.
- The unique design of the GSF Module provides a large surface area for the biological treatment of contaminants and nutrients.
- The top and side sections of the Eljen GSF Module are covered with anti-siltation geotextile fabric to prevent fines from migrating into the open channels.
Secondary Wastewater Treatment
- As well as protecting the soil from compaction, Specified Sand acts as a filler, preventing cracks and crevices from appearing in the ground.
- The filtered effluent drips into the Specified Sand layer, with precise grain size allowing unsaturated flow into the surrounding native soil.
- The native soil serves as the final filtration layer and recharges the groundwater.
Specified Sand Layer
All Eljen GSF Systems must be installed using ASTM C33 sand that passes no more than 10% through a #100 sieve and no more than 5% through a #200 sieve to ensure that the system functions properly. This specification is the key to successful secondary treatment before the wastewater reenters the native soil.
