Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost of the system?

Please call us and give specifics of your project so we will have a better understanding of your requirements to submit a system quote. You can also request an estimated quote via email by answering our questionnaires located here.

How much is installation?

Installation costs vary with soil types, lot layout and homeowner requirements. The range can be rather broad. MicroSepTec is not a licensed contractor and does not provide contracting services.

Do I still need a drainfield, a leachfield, seepage pits, drip, etc?


Are there areas where advanced wastewater treatment systems should be used rather than conventional systems?

Yes, in sensitive resource areas, around drinking water supplies, advanced treatment septic systems are necessary to remove pathogens and nitrate-nitrogen from your household wastewater. Conventional systems do not provide the necessary treatment even when working properly. Also, advanced treatment systems should be used at existing home sites requiring repairs or replacement where the site cannot accommodate a conventional system.

Is the technology complicated?

The process design and patents are quite simple and utilize components that are "off the shelf" and proven over many years. Fiberglass tanks have been utilized over concrete because of their proven strength and sealability. Through thermal decomposition sludge is converted into inert ash and the liquid is processed, releasing tertiary quality effluent. Even though the low failure rate of all our components is proven by long use in industrial applications, we have chosen to monitor the system 24 hours per day using an onboard computer.

Is there an odor?

There is no odor.

Do I need a percolation (perc) test?

Regulatory authorities and MST engineers require complete information regarding all geological aspects and residential requirements of the specific site. Once all engineering information is analyzed, a site layout can be calculated and the reuse or disposition of the recycled water can be determined.

What are the available sizes?

1200 gpd - Length: 208 inches long (17 feet)
