Combine high performance and high amenity on residential and commercial stormwater treatment projects.
The Hydro Biofilter™ is an attractive and highly effective stormwater treatment system that removes the need for engineers and contractors to compromise on either performance or amenity on urban SuDS projects.
Using soil and engineered filter media to remove high levels of coarse, fine and dissolved pollutants from surface runoff, even during high flows, the low-footprint Hydro Biofilter™ is versatile, easy to install and easy to maintain, and increases urban amenity and biodiversity.
Hydro Biofilter™ combines the simplicity of SuDS with the sophistication of smart engineering in a biofiltration system that uses soil and engineered filter media to treat an assortment of coarse, fine and dissolved pollutants from surface water runoff, even during high flows.
Optimised for high volume flow while retaining high stormwater pollutant removal efficiencies, Hydro Biofilter™ can remove trash and coarse debris down to particulate and dissolved metals and nutrients in one compact and aesthetically pleasing treatment system.
Designed with versatility and ease of use in mind, Hydro Biofilter™ is simple to install and maintain and works well with a variety of conditions at residential, commercial and other developed sites.
Hydro Biofilter™ was previously marketed as Hydro BioCell
Natural and engineered filtration technology, combining soil and filter media, removes a variety of surface water pollutants for a high level of treatment.
Hydro Biofilter™ contributes to attractive urban areas and street scenes and supports local biodiversity. Its compact design makes it ideal for both new build and retrofit applications and can handle a high flow through a small footprint.
Maintenance is similar to landscaped areas, and each unit is supplied with a 12-month maintenance agreement.
While the chemical and biological processes behind Hydro Biofilter™ are complex, installation is simple. The filter media and ready-fitted internal components are pre-packaged in the concrete chamber to facilitate easy drop-in-place construction.
Treated stormwater is discharged via the under drain system to a drainage outflow, watercourse, or onwards for infiltration if soil conditions allow. It can also be integrated with a secondary attenuation or infiltration such as the Stormcell® or Stormbloc Optimum® storage systems.
