Next week, September 20-24, is SepticSmart Week!
Our most recent webinar took on the format of a panel discussion as opposed to our traditional speaker and slides method. This webinar gave us the opportunity to address the top ten questions that are asked of our technical team on a daily basis. Let’s take a look at the first half of this list.
The fun in designing decentralized onsite wastewater treatment systems is that they’re all unique. For example, an onsite wastewater treatment system for one restaurant may vary significantly from the next. This is due to the fact that facilities like restaurants can vary due to location in terms of traffic exposure, popularity, the habits inside of the facility and other factors. These can present challenges for treating high strength waste (HSW). HSW is not limited to restaurants; just about any commercial facility can generate some form of HSW. This presents unique challenges to system designers and engineers. Fortunately, Infiltrator has experience in wastewater treatment system designs for HSW facilities and can provide assistance.
In-person tradeshows have returned and it’s exciting to be face-to-face with colleagues and customers again! The National Onsite Wastewater Recycling Association (NOWRA) will be holding their annual mega conference in San Marcos, TX, this October. Like previous years, this remains a top national conference for our industry.
One of the most critical parts of an onsite wastewater treatment system is the development of a healthy biomat, yet biomat is not something that can be purchased from a distributor. So, what exactly is the biomat and how does it form in a drainfield?
