The Aqua Safe® system is an inexpensive self-contained wastewater treatment system that uses aeration to process sludge reducing sewage to an odorless safe discharge in 24 hours. Aqua Safe® utilizes an extended aeration activated sludge process to allow aerobic bacteria and other microorganisms to convert the organic material in the wastewater into a new biomass.
