The mineral-based media is an inert material, it does not deteriorate over time and retains its characteristics. If the system is maintained the average lifetime is 10 years.
However, if system maintenance is neglected and accidental pollution has implications on the purification efficiency of the treatment unit, you will almost certainly need to change the media bags as soon as possible.
We recommend that you call upon the services of a professional who will replace the bags and dispose of the waste in accordance with local regulations and standards.
This is inert inorganic waste, which after treatment of the organic pollutants can be fully recycled. It can also be stored in an ultimate waste landfill.
