The Mantair unit is ideal for situations where there is a septic tank problem, whether it is a tank flooding or illegally discharging to a watercourse. Plus, the Mantair unit can convert existing cesspool holding tanks, removing the need for frequent emptying.
Once installed and commissioned, the Mantair conversion unit divides the existing septic tank or cesspool into two zones. Most of the existing tank is transformed into an ‘aerobic aeration zone’, where the aeration of the sewage creates the correct environment for aerobic micro-organisms to develop and degrade the incoming sewage. Air is supplied to this zone via a small remote air blower. As flow enters the tank aerated effluent is displaced into the second zone of the Mantair unit, referred to as ‘the final settlement zone’.
Within this zone the micro-organisms and fine solids settle and form a thin sludge, which is continuously returned to the aeration zone. The liquid that remains in the upper part of the settlement zone is the ‘treated effluent’ and this is discharged from the Mantair unit using the ‘final effluent airlift’. The airlift uses a proportion of the air from the remote air blower to syphon the treated effluent from the Mantair unit and existing tank. The use of the airlift enables the Mantair unit to discharge the treated effluent at a higher level than the tank inlet.
The Mantair septic tank conversion unit is an extremely cost-effective solution to resolve septic tank problems whilst minimising the disturbance to established gardens and ensuring compliance with regulations.
