Features and benefits
Meets the appropriate standards
The Graf EClean 20 wastewater treatment system has been independently tested under the On-site Effluent Treatment national testing Programme (OSET NTP) and meets, and in many cases exceeds, the requirements of AS/NZS 1547:2012 and AS/NZS 1546.3:2008 relating to secondary effluent quality and performance. The Graf EClean 20 is also certified to AS/NZS 1546.1:2008 relating to the engineering and construction of the tank and associated fittings.

Low power use
The Graf EClean 20 Domestic wastewater treatment system is designed for minimal energy consumption and runs on approximately .55 kWh/day (about 10 cents.) The EClean system is suitable for isolated and off grid dwellings as it can be operated effectively on solar power.
The Graf EClean 20 is a simple, one tank SBR (Sequential Batch Reactor) system that works using aeration and settling phases. Unlike other systems, there is no filtration, no mechanical moving parts in the treatment chamber, and no media required (live or artificial) which can be vulnerable to flooding - meaning there is very little than can go wrong, and minimal maintenance required.
Fully programmable system to suit any location
The Graf EClean 20 system is set up and run by a standalone control unit that can be installed in a preferred location. This unit contains the PLC, air blower and air valves, and allows custom system settings and diagnostics to be performed. It also features an automatic vacation mode that keeps the biological system alive and reduces power consumption when away on holiday.
Easy to install and operate
The Graf EClean 20 is a flat pack system that can be pre-assembled or assembled on site. The plastic injection moulded tanks are tough and durable and, unlike concrete systems, it’s lightweight. This makes installation easier and cheaper, as no crane is required, and the one large tank system means less excavation. There is also a smaller, separate disinfection tank.
Market leading warranties
Allflow is proud to offer market leading warranties: three years for installation, 15 years for the tank.
A better-looking system
Unlike some wastewater systems that protrude from the lawn, the Graf EClean 20 is fully concealed, and features a green telescopic lid that can be raised or lowered so it sits flush with the lawn. There is also the option of telescopic dome lids to allow system installation in areas of traffic, as these can handle the weight of up to 12-ton trucks. We offer the option of an EClean Concrete tank instead of a plastic moulded tank upon request.

What is SBR technology and how does it work?
SBR is Sequential Batch Reactor technology and it has been around a long time. It is the preferred treatment process for many municipal plants due to its reliability. Incoming wastewater is held back and processed in batches. SBR systems aren‘t as vulnerable to variations of inflows such as shock and low loads during vacations.

- Max daily flow: 2,000 litres
The control cabinet
The control cabinet has a PLC unit, air blower, and air valves. It can be placed in a discreet position in the garden and with minimal noise via the EPP insulated mounting unit plus indoor option. The high tech controller can be set to vacation mode and has many options like additional treatment options for nutrient removal.
The final view
Once the GRAF EClean 20 is in the ground, the image below is an example of what you'll see. Cover the area with greenery and you'll never know it's there! Note, this installation had two tanks, so there are two telescopic lids.
