How Does Bioman® Work?

Bioman® is a simple yet sophisticated 3-stage treatment process. On contact, bacteria in our products begin working producing enzyme, that break down stains, odours, dirt, scum, and grime, into particles that it can digest and convert into simple, chemical compound. The bacteria will continue multiplying approximately every 15 minutes.

Stage 1: Raw sewage enters the primary settlement tank to provide separation and breakdown of solids.

Stage 2: The sewage then by gravity passes through the effluent filter into the bio filter media treatment unit where the wellproven anaerobic digestion process begins. Bioman® uses media with a large surface area that’s the perfect environment for the growth of bacteria. This is essential in the breakdown of the effluent. Made from 100% recyclable material, Bioman’s bio filter media has been independently recognized as the most efficient in its class.

Stage 3: Filtration before discharge via gravity means or pumped outlet.

Bio Septic Tank


Water first enters the primary pre-treatment chamber, where organic and inorganic solids settle to the bottom. Fats and other floating matter forms a scum layer on top of the liquid inside the chamber. A sludge layer builds up in the chamber and a biological process takes place i.e. anaerobic bacteria digest the sludge and break down some of the organic matter fluid is decanted from the pre-treatment chamber through a baffle or filter to eliminate the passage of grease and floating matter.

Whenever liquid enters the pre-treatment chamber, waste water flows by gravity into the secondary bio filter media chamber. In this chamber these bacteria form as a bio-film on the submerged media and float in the solution. Anaerobic bacteria are far more efficient than their aerobic counterparts and the effluent is converted into clean, clear water through aerobic digestion and oxidisation. This process is odour-free.

Liquid from the aeration chamber flows into the clarifying chamber where the solution slows to enable any suspended particles to settle to the bottom. Treated water now flows to the final irrigation area.
