X-Perco Powerless Treatment System

If you are wanting a more eco-friendly option, or are planning to build “off the grid”, the X-Perco system is a great option. With no power involved in the treatment process, no worms,  and the possibility of gravity fed discharge (site specific) the X-Perco is the best powerless treatment system available. Also a great option for holiday homes.

X-Perco is the most robust powerless wastewater treatment process utilising a revolutionary natural filter media (Xylit). X-Perco offers reliability and sustainable treatment by removing the electro-mechanical parts from the treatment process.
