Here at the Big Bay Holiday Park we not only look after you, but also the wonderful environment that surrounds us here, in this pristine destination at Big Bay Manukau Heads.

One important way we do this is the operation of our Naturalflow Wastewater & Sewage Treatment System; an exceptional power free treatment system, delivering sustainability and cost effectiveness.

Using totally natural composting processes, the Naturalflow system utilises the recycling mechanisms of nature by, harnessing its forces that have been quietly working together for thousands of years to break down and decompose waste all around us, and positions them in an enclosed eco-system module that simulates the natural forest floor – nature working for you. Having no external power requirements means low running cost and silent operation; so nothing to disturb your peaceful stay.

The Naturalflow System uses vermiculture to reduce solid waste by up to 95 per cent, creating in the process valuable water soluble nutrients that can be recycled safely back into the environment to enhance our surroundings.

So to summarize: the Naturalflow system is power free, with no mechanics humming away to interrupt your stay; minimal maintenance, no moving parts means nothing to break down guarantying smooth running; robust in inconsistent loading situations, so ideal for handling the holiday influx. Overall the Naturalflow system is a truly eco-friendly system that works for you!
