The TURBO, Our revolutionary septic tank insert

The idea of aerating a septic tank to make it cleaner and more efficient is not new, it has been around since at least 1911 however, we at Bluewater are delighted to bring to market The Turbo; a lightweight, miniaturized treatment chamber for the 21st Century.

The Turbo can be incorporated into a new installation, or retro fitted to an existing septic system to deliver a marked improvement in its performance and efficiency in less than 2 weeks. The Turbo works by encouraging aerobic microbes or “good bugs” to break down the waste in your system.  The aeration of the system introduces more oxygen to the tank and the combination of the added oxygen and our treatment chamber offers an environment in which the bugs can thrive. 

As a result, odors and floating debris in your system are minimized and the amount of solids and BOD (Biological Oxygen Demand) in the discharge or effluent from your system is greatly reduced.  The result is less frequent pumping out of your system, a reduced load on your soil and a positive impact on your drain field, which will become cleaner over time thanks to the introduction and growth of the aerobic microbes.  By working at the front end of your system,  The Turbo does the hard work previously done by your drain field, leaving your soil to act as a final polishing filter to discharge cleaner water into the water table.




Septic Tank Problems The Bluewater Turbo is a perfect 21st Century solution for your clients’ drain field issues or poorly performing septic systems. The Turbo is supplied as a “plug and play” unit with all parts, fittings, fixtures and an installation manual included.
