RetroFAST® Septic System Enhancement
This high-performance “submerged aerated biological filter” provides proven treatment of residential (domestic-strength) wastewater installed either in an existing tank or for new construction. The RetroFAST® wastewater treatment systems are designed in 3 specific sizes for 1 to up to 8 persons living on the property. Ideal for upgrading a conventional septic system, the RetroFAST enhances or repairs an existing septic systems that have biologically failed. The RetroFAST® system inserts into an existing 18″ manhole without the need for heavy equipment. A very cost-effective solution that meets environmental standards with long term results.
Where sites and regulations allow, the RetroFAST® can be used in “new” installations. It delivers high levels of treatment (from day one) to help ensure that clogging layers never form. The RetroFAST® system constantly sends effluent rich in dissolved oxygen (DO) to the drain/leach field.
