Advanced Enviro-Septic® now approved in the state of Florida

We are proud to introduce the Advanced Enviro-Septic® Treatment System (“AES”) to Florida. Advanced Enviro-Septic® is the next generation of our effective and reliable Enviro-Septic® technology; it has received Class I Certification under NSF International/ANSI’s Standard 40 for Wastewater Treatment Devices. The reduced bed size of the Advanced Enviro-Septic® will allow it to be smaller than traditional stone trench systems.

Certification Classes

We require individuals who wish to design or install an Advanced Enviro-Septic® be certified by attending the Advanced Enviro-Septic® Design and Installation Certification Class offered by Presby Environmental authorized personnel or to view the online training videos (see below). The class offers various design and installation configurations, troubleshooting techniques and tricks of the trade. All professionals involved in the review or approval of Presby systems should also become certified.

As an important part of your training, please watch this orientation video by the inventor David W. Presby

Sorry - none currently listed

In Florida, certification is required for all designers and installers. The classes are a great way to learn more about our product, even if you are not seeking certification. We strongly recommend regulators involved in the review and inspection of Presby systems take the certification training. As part of certification, an assessment test is required. This should be taken only after viewing the class videos and reading the Florida Design and Installation Manual. The test is open book and is not timed. A passing score of 70% is required for certification.
