Authorized Installer for the Ecoflo® Biofilter fully integrated onsite wastewater management system
If you own or are looking to purchase property not serviced by a sewer system or need to replace an existing septic system, the Ecoflo® Biofilter is just what you need. Suitable for all types of property, this fully integrated onsite wastewater management system consists of a small fiberglass shell with a filter bed made from specially treated sphagnum peat moss.

The operating principle is very simple:
Wastewater from a septic tank flows into the shell and is dispersed over the surface of the filter bed by a gravity-based distribution system. The wastewater is treated by percolating through the peat-based filter bed and is then discharged by infiltration into the ground.
The Ecoflo® Biofilter is authorized for use in Ontario for the treatment of wastewater under the Ontario Building Code. Please see the Ontario Ministry of Municipal Affairs & Housing web site for a copy of our authorization.
The Ecoflo® Biofilter is a simple and permanent solution which has several advantages over traditional wastewater treatment systems:
- Very Compact
- Quick Installation by an authorized installer
- Great landscaping flexibility
- No electrical components
- Superior, long lasting treatment performance
- Groundwater protection
- Warranty, servicing and after sales service included
- Adds value to any property
Comparison to Conventional Septic Systems
The system is also a permanent solution. Unlike conventional septic systems which have to be relocated and completely rebuilt after a certain number of years, the Ecoflo® Biofilter only has to have its peat-based filter bed replaced. All this entails is the removing of the lid on the fiberglass shell and pumping the filter bed – this eliminates the needs for excavation.
For collective systems (housing developments), commercial (restaurants, apartment buildings, hotels, campgrounds, etc.) and institutional (schools, retirement homes, museums, etc.) applications, cluster installations are possible.
