There is a increase in a pollution of water in India. Pollution increases mainly due to the rapid urbanization. Due to water pollution health problem in human beings are occurring. There are various types waste water sources due to which clear water bodies get contaminated. One of them is domestic sewage. Therefore sewage treatment is very important factor with respect to water pollution. So here we try to design a model for domestic sewage treatment On the basis of this study, the more efficiency for reactor which is filled with bottle caps media with coir. Got more efficiency at 6 hr retention time with 60% media volume, because increase in surface area of media with addition of rubberized coir and punching the hole to bottle cap surface for bacterial growth as compared with FAB media.
