Settlement Tanks for the FilterPod Sewage Treatment Plant
The FilterPod sustainable wastewater sewage treatment plant system requires a settlement stage prior to the FilterPod plant.
The FilterPod uses two separate stage of settlement prior to the FilterPod unit itself. These are FilterPod Settlement Tanks.
The are installed along with the FilterPod, in the same hole and at the same depth, to make installation easy.
The first tank settles out large solids and the second tank settles out the finer, smaller solids.
There is a DrainX filter on the outlet of the second tank, to further prevent tiny suspended solids from leaving the tank.
Tech Specs for the settlement tanks
It is sometimes possible for an existing 2 stage septic tank to be used as the settlement tank stages.
In this case, the tank would need to be the correct size, be watertight and have an airflow over the top, between the chambers, is in the drawing here.
Please contact us to make sure that your existing tank is suitable, or if it can be adapted to be suitable, before you buy the FilterPod add-on septic tank conversion unit.
Unless the septic tank is of the correct design, the FilterPod treatment system will not work.
