At Ferris Trucking & Excavating we have not one, but 3 licensed designers and installers of septic systems. We maintain active membership in the Ontario Onsite Wastewater Association (OOWA), helping us to stay current on evolving industry information and improvements in technologies and processes.


We are pleased to specialize in the following environmentally responsible wastewater solutions:


  • Ecoflo® Septic Systems:   The Ecoflo® Biofilter is one of the most recommended, proven and performing compact filter solutios on the market. Ecoflo ® is certified by NSF and BNQ standards. Ecoflo® uses an organic filter to treat the pollutants and retain solids found in the wastewater coming from the septic tank. As the filter holds all pollutants and suspended solids, it prevents the clogging of the septic installation and prolongs its life span. Ecoflo® offers a smaller footprint and unlike conventional systems, which must be replaced and/or relocated after a number of years, Ecoflo® is a permanent system; only the filtering media has to be replaced after 8 years. Learn more about the Ecoflo® system and warranty.


  • Waterloo Biofilter Systems:   This patented filter system is proven to be stable and consistent over long periods without the need for cleaning or replacement, it requires a smaller footprint, and accepts high loading rates (up to 10 times greater than sand or soil) without failure or compromising treatment. The system provides aerobic, anaerobic, and anoxic environments for biological treatment simultaneously – without air compressors and their high energy use and aerobic sludge production. This system is very well suited to seasonal properties as it maintains biological populations even during periods of no use – enabling consistent treatment levels, which is ideal for cottage, golf courses and campgrounds.


These systems are superior in that they offer:

  • a smaller footprint;
  • long life or permanent filter mediums (unlike conventional systems);
  • greater efficiency/low energy consumption;
  • ecologically advanced processes, which reduce the transfer of pollutants to the environment.

Ecoflo® and Waterloo Biofilter Systems: 1 Year full parts and labour. We will be happy to review and consult on any problem that arises thereafter.
