Why Choose a Reed Bed?
Reed bed systems offer a number of significant
benefits. They save costs, are easy to operate, and
they are also environmentally safe.
What can you expect a Soil Based Reed Bed to
Reed beds can help to achieve a better standard of
water quality through:
· High level of bacterial and viral removal
· Decreased biological oxygen demand
· Reduction of suspended solids
· Reduction of nitrogen and phosphorous
Robust and Effective Treatment
The many natural processes operating within such
engineered ecosystems are dynamic, robust, and offer
a very powerful cleaning and recycling capacity that
is very difficult to reproduce mechanically or
The systems are not susceptible to effluent changes
and are able to withstand shock loadings, while
maintaining a consistent discharge quality.
Throughout their operational lifetime, reed bed
treatment systems designed for the most common
applications produce no noises or smells.
They produce no sludges or other by-products that
might incur additional costs of disposal.
Long-lasting, with Very Low Maintenance Costs
Reed bed systems can operate at costs of up to
90% less than conventional alternatives. With little
(if any) electrical or mechanical parts, reed bed
systems are long lasting, wear free, and naturally
Being self regulated systems, they are simple to
operate without chemical additives or complex
electronic controls. Consequently, operational costs
of reed beds are very low, and system lifetimes are
By investing in a reed bed treatment system,
companies you not only benefit from the above
advantages, but can also truly claim to be
protecting the environment and bringing human
activity into balance with nature.
An additional environmental benefit is that reed
beds offer wildlife conservation potential. Our
large industrial systems are often monitored by keen
bird spotters and been considered a nature reserve.
Equally, it is likely your Reed Bed will become a
habitat for wildlife.
