Keeping things clean: four tips for biodigester health

Wastewater is dirty, and the biodigester works hard to clean it up and process it into garden-ready fertilizer.

Here are a few things you can do to help keep things regular.

Use organic cleaning products. One of the perks of having a biodigester septic system is that it’s an organic, on-site alternative to sewage treatment. Organic, biodegradable cleaning products will help the good bacteria proliferate so they can digest faster.

Disinfect the toilet with a surface cleaner, instead of pouring bleach or other cleaners into the bowl.

Keep it simple. Avoid flushing anything inorganic. Have a separate receptacle for wipes and other nonbiodegradable products.

Grey water systems are great, but it’s best to keep grey water out of biodigesters.
