How the SludgeHammer system works

How the SludgeHammer® Wastewater Management System Works Its Magic.

The SludgeHammer® offers an energy-efficient solution to wastewater treatment. Using the equivalent energy of just one lightbulb, the SludgeHammer® aerates, circulates, and inoculates the entire tank. Up to 33,000 gallons per day pass through the unit's 120 square feet of inner condensed plastic matrix core, where colonies of waste-eating microbes attach and thrive.  Despite its compact size (36" tall and 15" wide), the SludgeHammer® can handle a significant amount of organic waste, which passes through the microbes and is rapidly digested to the point of non-existence. Don't let a failing septic system drain your finances - consider the SludgeHammer® for a more energy-efficient and effective solution.
