We face a global challenge to responsibly use and protect our finite supply of freshwater, yet all too often we overlook ways to guard and extend this precious resource.

Wastewater Reuse And Drip Dispersal

Drip technology was originally developed for the agricultural industry to improve the efficient delivery of water to plants, especially in environments where water supply is limited. The technique involved delivering water that plants actually use directly into the root zone and relying on horizontal and vertical movement through the soil to disperse the water evenly. Netafim is the world leader in drip applications and its drippers, filters, valves and other products have become industry standards around the world.

Wastewater reuse combined with intermittent drip dispersal enables a highly efficient system where the soil can make use of the water without suffering from large volumes at any given time. This enables soil to produce and maintain the correct conditions for wastewater treatment.

Effluent dispersal systems are essential for reusing and reducing water consumption. Even in dry areas where water availability is low, these systems can provide solutions that enable users to manage water use.

Subsurface drip dispersal is the most efficient method of dispersing wastewater effluent into the soil and presents the designer with a superior solution for virtually every soil type. When you purchase wastewater products from Netafim, you are getting the highest quality drip irrigation products available as well as an experienced team of Netafim Distributor professionals to support you.

The Netafim Bioline Calculator estimates the amount of Bioline needed to install a wastewater drip dispersal system, along with other design parameters. It is NOT intended to replace a professional design and should be used for estimating purposes only.



Drip Dispersal Solutions

In order to meet the increasing need for clean water, and the world population outstripping nature’s ability to deliver it, we must seek out and implement smart practices that provide sustainable solutions. The good news is that today more sophisticated advanced treatment units are available and do a far better job of treating the waste stream. Soil is one of nature’s most sophisticated purification tools. Whether clay, loam or sand, soil is an extremely effective treatment tool. When we deliver just the right amount of wastewater to it, at just the right time, the soil effectively provides additional and critical treatment before it reaches surface water or groundwater supplies. The key to success is delivering just the right amount of wastewater at just the right time to just the right spot.
