Taylex wastewater treatment systems: how do they work?

The Taylex system’s operation consists of four steps:

  1. Wastewater entrance to primary and secondary tanks: household wastewater enters the system’s primary chamber. Following this, the liquid makes its way into the secondary chamber. The time it spends in both of these anaerobic chambers facilitates bacterial action to condition it properly before it flows into the aeration chamber.
  2. Aeration: once in the aeration chamber, the ABS uses an air blower to introduce oxygen. The oxygen in the aerobix chamber allows for the bacteria to rapidly multiply and thoroughly mix through the pre-treated liquid, ensuring the complete digestion of organic material.
  3. Clarifier: after passing through the aeration chamber, the liquid flows into the clarification chamber. This is where any settlement of solids remaining in the liquid from the aeration chamber can be further digested on specially designed bio-media sheets.
  4. Irrigation: After the waste has broken down into a water-like consistency, it is passed through an outlet filter prior to chlorination. Through chlorination, the bacteria is removed thus leaving you with recycled water that you may use in your irrigation systems around the home.
