AdvanTex Ax-Max Wastewater Treatment System

AdvanTex Ax-Max Wastewater Treatment System

By Amanda Deck


Southern Water and Soil offers customers a variety of options when it comes to septic tank installation and repair. From Norweco Singular Green to the Infiltrator system, this thriving hometown business provides only the most innovative and reliable septic system products on the market.


In most instances, Southern Water and Soil can install the traditional wastewater treatment system in which wastewater initially enters a septic tank where it’s separated into sludge (heavy, sinking solids) and scum (floating solids such as oil and grease). Liquid waste, commonly known as effluent or grey water, can be found in between the sludge and scum layers. As new raw sewage enters the tank, the old wastewater is displaced and pushed out of the tank toward the drainfield. In the drainfield section, wastewater slowly trickles through a series of pipes and into the soil which acts as a natural filter, capturing impurities before the water reaches the underground water table.


When installing a new septic solution, the experts at Southern Water and Soil will create a system that best fits the features of your property according to municipal and state codes. They will examine the size of your lawn, soil type, water table depth, and other topographical features to ensure quality wastewater filtration. When a conventional septic system cannot be installed, Southern Water and Soil provides customers with many different wastewater treatment options, including Orenco Systems’ AdvanTex AX-Max.


About AdvanTex AX-Max

Since 1981, Orenco has worked to design and manufacture affordable, sustainable wastewater technologies for individual properties and whole communities that are not connected to city sewer systems.


One of their most popular products, the AdvanTex AX-Max, is ideal for entire communities or commercial and residential developments. It has been installed for use at subdivisions, apartment complexes, golf course resorts, manufactured home parks, parks, RV parks, campgrounds, schools, churches, businesses, rest areas, truck stops, and other areas around the world. For example, the AX-Max system has provided excellent treatment at a mining camp in Alberta, Canada; at a new hospital in Soyo, Africa; and at a famous beach park in Malibu, California.


What makes the AdvanTex AX-Max system so effective is that the entire system is built inside a lightweight, insulated fiberglass tank that can range from 14 to 42 feet in length. AX-Max can be installed above ground (for maximum versatility in temporary or variable-flow situations) or in-ground. The system can include one individual tank or multiple tanks depending on usage rates.


How it Works

The AdvanTex AX-Max model utilizes a multiple-pass system featuring three chambers: recirc-blend, recirc-pump, and recirc-filtrate. To begin, wastewater flows through a PVC pipe into the 3,000 gallon recirc-blend chamber where effluent blends with filtrate dripping down from hanging textile media. A pump then draws blended effluent into the recirc-pump chamber and above the textile media for further filtration. As the wastewater drips through the textile media, microorganisms remove impurities, just as soil would in a traditional drainfield system. After several cycles of treatment through the textile media, treated wastewater is finally dispersed into the environment for reuse.


Why AdvanTex AX-Max?

The AdvanTex AX-Max offers customers a complete wastewater treatment package that requires little operation and maintenance, making it a great solution for small communities with part-time operational staff. In addition, it requires little electricity to operate, saving property owners thousands of dollars in energy bills over time.


Orenco Systems’ AdvanTex AX-Max is available for installation though Southern Water and Soil throughout Florida and the Greater Tampa Bay area including Zephyrhills, Brandon, Lutz, Odessa, Wesley Chapel, Land o Lakes, Riverview, Ruskin, Plant City, Seffner, Dade City, and beyond.

Cavern Diving: Yes. – Cave Diving: Nope!

Let’s enjoy our springs!

Florida Nature Uncovered

For many divers and non-divers alike, the idea of cave diving gives people the willies. A cave diver must undertake additional training that goes beyond recreational dive training. But there are many dive spots in Florida that are nowhere near the ocean that don’t necessarily require technical dive training (although more training never hurts).

That’s because Florida has a wealth of springs and sinkholes due to our porous bedrock and underground aquifer. Some of these form caverns that are popular recreational dive spots. Places like Blue GrottoBlue Spring, King’s Spring, and Ginnie Springs offer cavern diving (not to be confused with cave diving), which involves diving in shallower water within sight of the surface and with minimal or no overhangs (basically, anything that blocks your way to the surface). Most of these same places also offer cave diving, which involves deeper dives, extensive overhangs, and special…
