3-Compartment System Specifications
The Solar Aerobic 3-Compartment System is the ultimate home treatment system. It is an extended aeration activated sludge process, which mostly utilizes introduced air as a method of treating wastewater. Aeration allows dissolved oxygen to react with the wastewater and promote the growth of helpful bacteria that break down solid waste. The 3-compartment system has a three-step treatment process.
- Pretreatment begins where influent connects with the house before wastewater even enters the tank.
- Wastewater enters the aeration chamber where oxygen is added to the sewage.
- Treated wastewater encounters the clarifier, where clear and odor-less effluent rises.
The aerator and pump in this system are so quiet that customers won’t even notice the system at work. The Solar Aerobic System also comes with a complete control center to monitor and control the waste treatment system.
The Solar Aerobic 3-Compartment System can be used with a liquid chlorinator which accepts ordinary household bleach. This eliminates the need for the owner to bother with messy tablet treatments. This also allows the system to operate at a much lower cost than other treatment systems.
4-Compartment System Specifications
National Wastewater Septic Systems also offers a more complex treatment system ideal for larger, commercial or industrial areas. The 4-compartment system is a scaled-down version of the treatment devices used by townships and municipalities. Like the 3-compartment system, the 4-compartment system also works with aeration to treat sewage with the proper organisms. There are six steps involved in the 4-compartment treatment process.
- Pretreatment starts in a designated tank which traps and separates non-biodegradable waste.
- Wastewater moves into the aeration chamber where oxygen is introduced, spurring the growth of helpful organisms and bacteria that will break down the solid waste.
- Solids and liquids are separated in the clarifier and activated sludge is returned to the aeration chamber.
- A liquid chlorinator disinfects when needed.
- Chlorinated discharge is stored in a holding tank to be disposed of properly by the system.
- Organisms continue to digest solids in the wastewater with the help of linear air pumps.
A central control panel monitors and controls the entire system, ensuring it operates efficiently and requires only low-cost maintenance. And while the 4-compartment system is efficient and complex, it is still a one-piece design with no moving parts or filters that need extra attention and repair.
