A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

Best Available Technology

Remember this post?

A few weeks ago I showed you the 10 day results (before and after) of a mixed use (commercial and residential) septic system we retro-fit with an Eliminite.  Today I want to give you the total nitrogen numbers.  The sample was collected about a week ago.  Think.....December in Montana. 

TKN: 6 mg/L
NO2+NO3: 1.8 mg/L

Total Nitrogen:  7.8 mg/L.
This means that in a few weeks, at high altitude, in Montana cold, an Eliminite system transformed the wastewater on the left into treated effluent with a total nitrogen concentration below the safe drinking water standard.  No media cube fluffing...just trouble free operation and great results.

I have been thinking and it has become clear to me that,
 Eliminite's worst numbers are better than other systems best numbers.
And our prices are lower.

I forgot to tell you about this one

A beautiful residential development on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Bozeman, MT
needed to upgrade their onsite wastewater treatment system.  The HOA hired an engineering firm to prepare plans and explore treatment options for the 70+ lot system. 

Three manufacturers provided proposals for the new system.

After reviewing the proposals with their engineer, the HOA decided to award the job to Eliminite. 

Maybe it was our lower cost or simpler maintenance.  Maybe it was our robust telemetry system.  It could have been that our treatment numbers are significantly better or that our systems do not have the visual impact of the others.
Maybe it was a combination of all these factors.

I can say with certainty that if you need an advanced onsite wastewater treatment system and you have not considered Eliminite, you will probably be paying more for a lower quality treatment system, period.

Here is an interesting news flash

Maryland auditors recommend criminal probe of septic system upgrade contractsBALTIMORE — Questionable septic system upgrade contracts totaling $1 million have been referred to the attorney general’s criminal division, according to an audit of the Maryland Department of the Environment released Thursday.
The average cost of 57 MDE-administered contracts awarded to two contractors was about $19,000, more than $7,200 higher than other projects statewide. And the cost for the 57 projects was more than $400,000 higher than similar projects, the auditors found.

As soon as I find out more details I'll post it here.
