A Safe Alternative to Septic
The LandSaver® MBR by Tangent fully treats all effluent leaving your house to near non-detectable contaminant levels. All effluent passes through an ultrafilter barrier and disinfection system that filters out and destroys all bacteria and viruses.
Other technologies typically approved in a state do not have a barrier and only restrict discharges when aeration and UV devices fail. But if the primary tank needs to be pumped, or is impacted by heavy household water use, poorly treated sewage can be sent to the yard. The issue is compounded during heavy rains when sewage in the saturated ground comes up to the lawn’s surface.
High-quality effluent from the LandSaver® MBR meets Department of Health Unrestricted Surface Discharge requirements in Ohio and Arizona and other states. When allowed locally, it can be disposed of on site without subsurface leach fields or sand mounds. Typically, effluent treated to a quality for unrestricted surface discharge can be dispersed on lawns and other places where people and pets are expected to come into contact with it. Spray dispersal equipment and installation usually cost less than subsurface leach field, sand mounds, or drip dispersal. Spray irrigation dispersal saves space on a property, avoids significant tree removal, and does not require large and unsightly disposal mounds.
The LandSaver® MBR system consistently produces effluent free of coliform bacteria, organic matter (BOD < 5 mg/l), and residual solids (TSS < 1 mg/l). Ohio has stringent ammonia removal standards that it meets. Variations in flow from heavy water usage do not impact contaminant removal performance because of equalization tanks that often are not included in other systems. This adds extra time for consistent treatment while also controlling flow surges. UV treatment adds additional disinfection assurance since it is treating a clear effluent. The combination of the the features mentioned above and the state-of-the-art monitoring and control system described on The LandSaver® MBR Difference page creates fail-safe treatment you can rely on.
