Residential SeptiTech® STAAR™ Filter Systems

Kennedyville_MD_2_smIf your home or business is not connected to a central sewer system, you will need an onsite wastewater system. All your household wastewater will be collected and treated on the spot (on site).

The treated effluent will be returned to the soil and after soil filtration, to the groundwater. Some components are common to all onsite systems. Others depend on your site conditions.

The simple, automatic and reliable equalization and clarification process of the SeptiTech® STAAR™ (Smart Trickling Anaerobic/Aerobic Recirculation) Residential Filter Systems treat high organic loads that integrate with other technologies and accessories.  The biological trickling filter technology also maintains low levels of Nitrate-N with all below-grade components that fit in readily available concrete, plastic or fiberglass tanks. The “Smart” controller of the residential STAAR™ filter system recognizes situations dealing with peak, low, intermittent or no flow conditions. SeptiTech’s “Smart” technology allows the system to go into a sleep mode that will dial down activity and eventually shut all power off until normal flow conditions are detected. This allows the STAAR™ system to achieve lower operating costs and power requirements. Additional features are also available to further enhance quality and dependability.

Utilizing an enhanced, biological, unsaturated media filter process, the SeptiTech® STAAR™ System is ETV-EPA verified and NSF/ANSI Standard 40/245 certified. With a disinfection system and a low-impact technology for irrigating plants (or other non-potable use), the patented SeptiTech® STAAR™ filter systems are designed for direct discharge or water reuse in mind.

How Does the System Work?


  1. Effluent from the primary settling zone flows into the bottom of the trickling filter mixing with the treated wastewater.
  2. Wastewater is then pumped up into the trickling filter.  The pump simultaneously draws a robust amount of air.  The air combines with the uniform spray providing efficient treatment as the water and air combination trickles down through the filter media.
  3. The SeptiTech® STAAR™ Filter Panel Senses “surge flow” and “low flow” activity; automatically adjusting the discharge rate as needed.  It even senses a “no flow” situation to “slow down” to put the system in “Sleep” mode.
  4. Systematically, wastewater is pumped back to the settling zone to remove sludge from the trickling filter.  This localizes sludge management into the settling zone.
  5. After treatment, a pump will send small, frequent time doses to ensure optimal soil absorption.
