Waterloo Biofilter Featured on ‘Moving the McGillivrays’

The Waterloo Biofilter system was recently featured on the hit HGTV show Moving the McGillivrays, episode number six entitled Sweet In-Law Suite.  It was important to host Scott McGillivray to have an environmentally friendly and efficient septic system for his new home making the Waterloo Biofilter the perfect solution.

Scott’s septic system consists of a septic tank, flow-balancing pump tank, and Basket Biofilter wastewater treatment unit installed in a compact footprint at the front of the house.  Highly treated effluent is pumped from the Basket Biofilter tank to a disposal bed located at the back of the house.  The whole system is remotely controlled and operated using the Waterloo Smart Panel which provides peace of mind to the McGillivrays knowing their septic system is professionally monitored and maintained with full data logging and live alarm notifications.

Also featured on the show is a Rainwater Harvesting system supplied by Waterloo Biofilter Systems that collects, filters, and distributes rainwater for irrigation purposes, helping to reduce potable water usage.

Waterloo Biofilter Systems Inc. is very excited to have helped the McGillivrays create their family’s dream home.  Check out this video where Waterloo Biofilter’s Christopher Jowett walks Scott through his new advanced septic system.  If you have any questions about any of the products used in the show, please contact our office at 1-866-366-4329 or by email to info@waterloo-biofilter.com.

Both the Rainwater Harvesting system and Waterloo Biofilter wastewater treatment unit were installed by Smith Excavating, Grading, and Septic Services. Click to view their website or contact their office at 905-936-2332.
