NextGen Septic GenX Retrofit

GenX Retrofit septic technology from NextGen Septic can be installed in any approved septic tank and is designed to repair a clogged soil drainfield. It includes a compact, stand-alone, automated, two-stage treatment system for domestic sewage that produces a clean-water output. The sewage is collected in a tank, where solids break down under anoxic conditions, while the wastewater is aerated with biomedia and low-noise submersible pumps in the secondary compartment. The second stage occurs in a separate treatment unit, treating nitrogen and phosphorus through a no-maintenance membrane and ozone disinfection system. The process lets water and salt pass through, while rejecting the solids and dissolved organic contaminants to create an output suitable for surface discharge. According to the maker, the clogged field begins to percolate water in as little as eight to 12 weeks when the biomat is thin enough to allow water to get through at a reasonable rate. 513-673-3583;

Aeration Systems

Geomatrix Systems SoilAir

SoilAir from Geomatrix Systems intermittently aerates the drain/leachfield and surrounding soils rather than constantly aerating wastewater in a tank. This process allows rapid rejuvenation of failed septic systems, extends the life span of new leachfields and enhances treatment, according to the maker. Systems can serve single and multifamily homes, as well as challenging and high-strength waste streams, such as restaurants, hotels, marinas, laundromats, health care facilities, grocery stores, food processing facilities and convenience stores. 888-764-5247;
