The proper operation of this or any other home sewage system depends upon proper organic loading and the life of the microorganisms inside the system. Delta is not responsible for the in-field operation of a system, other than the mechanical and structural workings of the plant itself. We cannot control the amount of harsh chemicals or other harmful substances that may be discharged into the system by the occupants of a household, we can only provide a comprehensive owner’s manual that outlines substances that should be kept out of the system.
Hydraulic overloading (flows in excess of design flow) may cause the sewage treatment system not to perform to the fullest capabilities.
ants have been shown to be destructive to the air pump. Regular care should be taken to prevent infestation of ants near the system. Damage or destruction by ants is not covered under manufacturer’s warranty.
Your State or local Health Department may require other pieces of equipment to function separately or in conjunction with equipment manufactured by Delta Environmental Products. Delta Environmental Products is not responsible for the mechanical or electrical safety of equipment it does not manufacture or supply with its ECOPOD-N™ Fixed Film Wastewater Treatment System. Particular care should be used in evaluating the electrical or mechanical safety of equipment manufactured by others. This may include but not be limited to electrical control panels or air pumps.
If electrical service has not been installed for checking air distribution system during installation, and if an extension cord is used to test the air pump, never leave the extension cord plugged in. Remove it after testing is completed.
Due to a possible fire hazard, DO NOT plug into service equipment or power pole and DO NOT use extension cords. all electrical work performed by the installer or others must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local Codes.
The ECOPOD-N™ Fixed Film Wastewater Treatment System is designed to provide years of trouble free operation.
Determination of the need for solids removal can be done through a simple test. A one quart sample should be pulled from the reactor tank and can be done so through the 4” sample port. Allow the sample to settle in a clear one quart jar for one hour. If the solids content exceeds 25 percent of the total volume after settling or more than 13 inches of sludge the treatment unit should be pumped out. Call your local authorized sewage disposal service to have the tank contents pumped out and disposed of properly.
The method of pumping out should be as follows:
The air pump should be in the off position.
Remove all of the solids from both the reactor tank and the
After the pump-out process is complete, fill the tank with fresh water to normal operating level.
Refer to the Installation Instructions to get the treatment plant back into operation.
Should indication of improper operation be observed at any point in time, contact your local distributor.
