Being a rural property we need to provide our own sewerage system. The old one was in need of replacement so a Biolytix sewerage treatment system was chosen that is basically an ecosystem in a tank.
It uses specialised organisms such as worms to convert the waste into humus. So basically it is like a giant worm farm. We can even have a kitchen waste disposal unit which is not normally allowed when you are on a sewerage system. This way we can give the worms a bit of variety in their diet.
A giant hole was dug into the ground and the Biolytix system installed
A series of purple pipes with drippers in them are run in a field … in our case spaces a metre a part.
We can plant our fruit trees in the field area and they will be watered by the system which will be awesome. If you want to read more about these systems you can visit their website
