Q What is an Ozzi Kleen RP10?
Answer: Ozzi Kleen RP10 is a 10 person Home Sewage Treatment system, utilising the Fully Aerobic Activated Sludge technology used in most modern day town and city council sewage treatment plants.
Q What does it do?
Answer: It captures and treats all household wastewater from the kitchen, bathrooms, toilets, laundry etc, for reuse on gardens/lawns.
Q How does it work?
Answer: As soon as you press the button or pull the plug, the wastewater enters the Ozzi Kleen RP10 home sewage treatment plant to begin the aerobic treatment process. This is where a complete digestion of organic waste takes place in the oxygen rich environment, using naturally occurring bacteria. The organic waste entering the tank is treated to high quality water for reuse. This water is decanted and disinfected, then goes into an effluent holding compartment. When a sufficient amount of water has entered this compartment, a float switch turns the effluent pump on and pumps the treated water out through the irrigation line onto gardens and lawns.
