Black Water Treatment
Black water also known as sewage water. Mainly from toilets and kitchen water.
The Bubbler water system treats waste water both black and grey.
The system breaks down natural waste and takes the water to landfill standard which can be used for irrigation.
The Bubbler system can be adapted for each customer needs and water can be cleaned to requirements of client. For example: Water can be recycled for toilet flushing.
Existing septic tanks can be converted so that no sucking out is required.
THE BUBBLER PROCESS
Household grey water and sewage are deposited into the DIGESTER tank.
In the Digestor tank the sewage is processed through anaerobic as well as aerobic digestion coupled with aeration through the SEPTIC BOSS system.
WHAT IS BUBBLER ?
Bubbler is a waterborne sanitation system, designed for the on-site treatment of effluent. This means that sewage can be treated on site without the need for a connection to the municipal grid.
HOW DOES IT WORK ?
When the toilet is flushed the sewage is transported to a primary tank (Digester Tank) where it is digested through the Bubbler’s patented system.( The Bubbler also loves, and actually needs, the effluent from washbasins, bathtubs and showers).
Where Can It Be Used?
The Bubbler uses naturally occurring micro organisms and enzymes contained in the BUBBLER SPECIAL BACTERIA BLEND, which are added as a biological additive to facilitate the digestion. There-after the semi purified water flows into a secondary tank (Ducting Filter) where the pathogens and remaining solids are removed, once again through another Bubbler patented system. The result is water that is suitable for re-use in the cystern, or for the cultivation of crops.
WHERE CAN IT BE USED?
Bubbler is ideal for settlements where there are no municipal infrastructure, or where it would be more cost effective to install the Bubbler in stead of creating a traditional municipal sewerage system. The Bubbler is especially suitable for rural areas, or new urban developments where the existing infrastructure does not have the capacity to accommodate the expansion.
Bubbler is also the ideal replacement for existing septic tanks.
HOW SAFE IS IT ?
The final effluent from the Bubbler system complies with the South African National standard for Landfill water. This means that the water is suitable for the irrigation of crops, or re-use in the toilet cysterns, since harmfull pathogens and solids have been reduced to a scientifically acceptable standard.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF USING THE BUBBLER?
The use of the Bubbler disposes with the need for expensive sewage disposal systems. The sewage is processed on site, and the water is available for immediate re-use. Recycling is of major importance in water-scarce countries.
The Bubbler is a system with no smells, it is easy to clean and it minimises the risk of the spread of sanitation-related diseases by facilitating the appropriate control of disease carrying flies and pests. It furthermore enables safe and appropriate treatment and/or removal of human waste and wastewater in an environmentally sound manner.
The Bubbler does not need messy and unhigienic cleanouts like other existing sewerage systems such as dry latrines or existing septic tanks. The Bubbler leaves no solid residue that have to be disposed of on a regular basis, and it is expected that the Bubbler will only need to be pumped out once in every 10 years. The Bubbler will also alleviate the institutional burden and cost of the provision of bulk sewage treatment systems associated with traditional sewerage plants.
The use of the Bubbler will prevent pollution and contamination of natural resources.
The Bubbler is an easily constructed, low maintenance, and low cost, system. It has a bacteria innoculator that has to be replaced once every 3 months, and 1 chlorine pill that needs replacement approximately every 4 weeks, depending on use. The Bubbler’s components are made from PVC and Polyethylene plastics that are virtually indestructable, and it is expected that under normal circumstances it will never need to be replaced.

The Bubbler creates the opportunity to provide dignified sanitation solutions to communities where it were previously not possible to do due to lack of existing infrastructure. The fact that proper sanitation facilities are available reduces the risk of spreading disease, and other complications of improper sanitation, significantly.
The Bubbler is an ecologically friendly system with a small ecological footprint.
