A Type1 septic is a holding tank that requires pumping out every 3-5 years, while the Biocycle system is a treatment plant.
The Biocycle system allows for the wastewater to be processed, giving a cleaner effluent, and therefore pumping out of the system is less often.
There are many variables that decide the timeframe on when the Biocycle system would need to be pumped but have ranged, in the past, anywhere from 5 – 20+ years.
The BioCycle system works by processing the wastewater.
It comes into the first chamber, to stop the toilet paper from going into the rest of the process whole, then the wastewater only is pushed into the next chamber.
In the second chamber, it is processed with the naturally growing bacteria.
After this chamber, it is then pushed into the third chamber, the wastewater will either be pushed into the final chamber and out to the field OR will be pushed back to the first chamber to go through the process again.
BioHarmony is currently only selling and installing in British Columbia. We can sell and ship into certain regions of the USA, at the shipper’s expense.
BioHarmony is currently not able to sell in some regions of Canada but BioHarmony is working on getting certified.

Like any other wastewater treatment system, the BioCycle does need maintenance.
The number of times a tank will be serviced throughout one calendar year is dependent on the design of the system.
BC Law states:
An owner must ensure that a sewage system on the owner’s land is maintained in accordance with the maintenance plan provided in respect of the sewage system. An owner must keep records of maintenance carried out.
