Ferris and Sam’s reed bed!




An alternative to the good old septic tank with overflow pipe going into your neighbours field!, is a reed bed system. A couple of friends, Ferris and Sam have installed one at their house. You start with a storage tank which holds solids and liquids. The liquid goes into a pipe and into the bed containing Flag Iris’s. These do the first part of the filtering. From there the water goes to the willow bed, which does No’2 filtering. Finally the water ends up in a pond as clean drinkable water.
