Committed To Give Excellence

Go Green is a small, innovative technology company that specializes in custom design of advanced wastewater treatment systems. In this age of increased ecological awareness and tougher government regulation, conventional septic tank systems are no longer adequate. Highly reliable, low maintenance, quiet systems that meet the highest standards of water treatment are required. We offer a range of solutions suitable for marine or land based use, that can be installed nearly anywhere, from a mobile home to a facility handling a sub-division. Whether you are a homeowner with a failed septic system, a general contractor, or a government agency, our staff can meet your needs.

How It Works

The Go Green system is an advanced wastewater treatment system that includes a series of tanks which carry out secondary biological treatment ( fixed bio film technology)

Step One

Removal of solids in a settlement chamber (similar to a septic tank).

Step Two

The overflow moves to the fermentation chamber by gravitational flow, where it is exposed to naturally occurring microorganisms (bacteria) that feed on the biological waste. A plastic media to which the microorganisms tend to attach themselves enhances the biological reactions and spreads them throughout the chamber.

Step Three

The wastewater (effluent) then moves to another tank, where an aerator fan injects oxygen. This converts the biological reactions from anaerobic (without oxygen) to aerobic (with oxygen), allowing different reactions to occur. This chamber also is equipped with a media to increase processing

Step Four

The gravitational flow continues into the final clarifies chamber where settlement of any solids remaining in the effluent will occur.

Step Five

From the pump chamber the effluent is periodically pumped into a lake, river, ocean, or through a sand filter for dispersal via percolation into the soil,

Advantages

(the air pump/aerator)

Options

A bio-filter can be installed to remove any suspended particles before the effluent is passed to the pump chamber. If denitrification (removal of ammonia nitrogen) is required a feedback pipe (not shown) passes the effluent back to the solids chamber for reprocessing. Design variations depend on the type of wastewater to be treated and the amount of the inflow.

Floating/Structures

Use Floating Homes/Structures. Uses low profile 32 “High polyethylene tanks, For Floating Fishing Lodges and Floating Logging Camps, large 2500 Gallon Polyethylene Tank’s, can be used

Residential/Commercial

Residential/commercial land based system’s we use precast concrete tanks. The regular tanks have ( risers) that provide access to service the system’s, which can be secured by a special locking mechanism.

Visit the products section for specifications of our various systems. Where the amount of water to treat is under 300 imperial gallons (1300 liters) per day, we offer packaged systems that can be shipped anywhere and installed and running in under a day. For larger systems we serve the needs of the Pacific Northwest through our network of partner companies. Throughout the site you may click on photos for an enlarged view.

For our international visitors, this website is available in six languages, we only wish our translation skills were as good as our products. There is a link also to Babelfish for Japanese, you must have the East Asia package installed on your computer for this to work. Entrepreneurs visit the “opportunity” link at the bottom of this page.
