Yes! A recent study commissioned by Suffolk County concluded that the addition of an I/A OWTS system can enhance property values by 13-19%, which equates to $50,000-75,000 for a residence worth $400,000! In other words, on top of representing the single largest environmental impact a Long Island homeowner can make, upgrading your cesspool or septic tank to a Fuji Clean is also a wise investment.
No. Unlike some I/A OWTS systems, the Fuji Clean connects directly to your home’s outgoing waste line, cutting down on both the total project costs and the footprint of your sanitary system. Read about the different types of Fuji Clean products here.
No problem! The external air blower for your Fuji Clean will stop running, but the system simply converts to a conventional septic tank during a power outage, with effluent from the tank continuing to flow via gravity into your leaching pool/drain field until power is restored.
No. While Fuji Clean is the most compact I/A OWTS system on the market, like all other I/A OWTS systems, it is connected to leaching pools or drain fields that disperse the treated effluent from the system into the ground. These drainage structures are professionally designed to ensure there is sufficient capacity for your project.
Probably! Unless your project entails new construction on a vacant lot, grant funding of between $10,000 and $30,000 is most likely available from the County and/or State. And if you reside in the Towns of East Hampton or Southampton, you may be eligible for an additional $15,000 to $20,000 in funding for your project. The available funding is often enough to cover the entire cost of your Fuji Clean installation!

The external blower for the Fuji Clean CEN 5 (four-bedroom unit) consumes only 1.1 kWh/day. This is the equivalent of approximately 22 cents per day, or just $6 per month. Fuji Clean’s dedication to energy efficiency helps make it an environmentally friendly addition to your home and the most cost-effective I/A OWTS on the market.
No! In fact, the FujiMac80 external blower is rated at just 40 decibels, which is classified as “library quiet.” On top of that, AWS houses the Fuji Clean external blowers inside a heavy-duty air enclosure box that further reduces the noise of the blower to virtually inaudible levels.
For a Fuji Clean CEN 5 (four-bedroom unit), the total cost of systems operations and maintenance is just $250 per year, the least expensive of all I/A OWTS systems. Advanced Wastewater Solutions also provides the first year of maintenance service free of charge as a courtesy to its customers.
