Unlike all other non-electric sewage treatment plants, the FilterPod was designed here in the UK.
The UK has some of the highest groundwater levels in the World, with many areas that would be underwater, if it were not for the Pumping Stations that keep the land above river and sea levels.
Unlike sewage treatment tanks that are full of water all the time, the non-electric ones have no internal water pressure pushing on the inside walls of the tank all the time. This means that the tank walls need to be so much stronger to withstand the one-way external pressure of the groundwater pushing inwards.
Most other non-electric wastewater treatment systems were designed in countries which don't have our high UK groundwater issues and we have seen tanks that were totally distorted by this pressure when installed in the UK, particularly in the Fens, the Vale of York and the Somerset Levels.
Our FilterPod tanks are guaranteed to withstand all UK groundwater pressures when installed correctly, as per the installation manual that come with every FilterPod tank.
They also have a 10 year tank warranty, unlike many of the UK market leaders, whose tanks have only 12 months warranty. It is worth checking this out before you buy one.
We also manufacture Eco-Electric systems for UK groundwater Conditions. They can also withstand very high water tables as they are constructed with the same thickness of high grade polymer. These plants only use 40 watts/hour for a 6 person plant, so are worth considering if you have electricity on a difficult site.
