Components of a complete
Biodigester System



Biodigesters have several components including: Biodigester Tank, Grease Trap, Soakpit, Piping System, Irrigation system, Microorganisms.

1. Biodigester Tank

It is composed of inlet and outlet pipes, inlet and outlet baffles, inspection vents, microbes and water. Designs and installations as well as quality of biodigester tanks vary greatly depending on installers, materials used and uses.

However, each and every component of biodigester tank installed by Biodigester System Experts has been researched, tested and validated. Our clients are offered the best services when it comes to expertise in installations, choice of materials and irrigation systems.


Below is a simple model of how biodigester system looks like.

2. Grease Trap

A grease trap (also known as grease interceptor) is a plumbing device designed to intercept most greases and solids before they enter into wastewater disposal system. Kitchens produce grease waste which is present in the drain lines from sinks and dishwashers. If not removed, the grease can clump and cause blockage and back-up in the sewer lines and biodigesters.

Grease traps work on the basis that animal fats and vegetable oils (grease) are less dense than water and that grease won’t mix with water. Thus, fats and oils float on top of water.


We install the best grease traps to offer you the best service.

3. Soak Pit

If the client has no extra space for gardening, a soak pit will serve the purpose. A soak pit, also known as a soakaway or leach pit, is a covered, porous-walled chamber that allows mineral-rich water to slowly soak into the ground. Soak pits can be built and repaired with locally available materials, takes small space and helps recharge the underground water. It has low capital and no operating costs.


The design of our soakpit offer the best service. The choice of hardcore, shape and overall finish is generally the best.

4. Piping System

Adequate piping system ensures that biodigester system work properly as designed. The choice and installation of piping is very critical. We offer excellent plumbing system for our Biodigester Systems. We recommend you to only work with the experts.

5. Irrigation system

We take into account that Biodigesters work on the principle of displacement, that is, volume of water entering the biodigester tank is equal to water leaving it. We make sure that water leaving the biodigester, which is already paid by consumers under normal bills, will not go to waste but are reused to beautify the flower and grass lawns without incurring another cost of water bills. Biodigesters play a pivotal role in reducing health risks, facilitating control of pollution and at the same time adding value to garden. Irrigation systems when correctly installed, can be used to irrigate flower and grass lawns in the compound. There are few rules as to what can be planted, but soak ways vary. Soak ways are a series of relatively shallow underground perforated pipes laid in gravel trenches that allow mineral-rich water to irrigate a garden.

The answer to soak away gardening is to find plants that will meet your landscape needs but also not clog the drain pipes. In general, shallow-rooted herbaceous plants that are not water-loving are the best.

Our Biodigester System Experts will definitely offer the best service in regards to soak away gardening.


6. Microorganisms

Our microorganisms is composed of several beneficial bacterium and enzymes. It is natural, environmental protection and non-toxic. Its primary function is to accelerate decomposing of the organic materials into mineral-rich water and gases. When added to the biodigester system, the beneficial microbes activate and begin to secrete enzymes that rapidly digest and decompose organic waste to water and gases.

The environmentally harmless microbes rapidly multiply in the biodigester thereby restoring its biological health and efficiency. What sets us apart from other biodigester installers are the microorganisms that we introduce. They are the best in the market.

7. Manholes and inspection vents

These are used to check on the working system of the biodigester. However, in all our installed Biodigester Systems, we have never experienced any issue that requires inspection of the Biodigester tank.
