Aeration Pump

Jet Inc. 700++ Aerator

The flood-resistant Jet Inc. 700++ Aerator is the only mechanical component in the 1500 Series BAT Media Plant and works in tandem with the BAT Media to provide complete biological processing. The aerator shaft spins and combines outside air with wastewater in the treatment compartment, flowing into the tank to provide oxygen for the treatment process. The dual-purpose foam restrictor protects the aerator by controlling foam created in the treatment chamber and also serves as a high-water alarm trigger. 800-321-6960;

Effluent Pumps

Clarus Environmental Model 142

The Clarus Environmental Model 142 effluent pump has a low-flow design originally engineered for septic tank effluent pump applications in which the pump, protected from septic solids by a filtered vault, moves effluent directly out of the septic tank without the need for an additional pump tank. Higher-flow pumps in that environment cause agitation within the septic tank and disrupt the sludge and scum formations. It produces a maximum flow of 18 gpm at 5 feet of TDH and can reach 62 feet at shut-off. It is available in 115 volts, has a powder-coated, cast iron housing and is capable of passing 1/2-inch spherical solids. 800-928-7867;
