Eco-Machines:Treat Waste Water the Natural Way

Conventional sewage treatment is a complex, multi-step process that often involves chemicals to break down and "clean" waste water. See picture below from our friends at Wikipedia:

The Eco-Machine is built using natural ecological engineering principles, leveraging natural processes rather than chemical processes. The systems are designed to conserve and recycle wastewater for irrigation, toilet flushing, and other nonpotable uses. Here are a couple of examples from their website:
