Drip Systems

Jet Inc. Drip Irrigation Headworks
The Drip Irrigation Headworks package from Jet Inc. is designed as a direct-mount device for an effluent pump tank to filter effluent, while controlling pressure to the dripfield. It is available for automatic or manual/continuous flush. These packages contain a 1/2 hp high-head effluent pump, float tree, 1.5-inch vortex screen filter and pre-installed pressure gauges to monitor pressure drop across the filter component and regulate pressure to the dripfield. The package mounts onto an existing 24-inch riser or is pre-installed in a 24-inch riser for easy access to the pump, float tree, integrated vortex filter and controls. The package is available as part of the complete Drip Disposal Field Package that includes integrated controls for the Jet J-1500 or J-1500CF Series Bat Media treatment system. An optional flowmeter package, disc filter and pressure relief valve are also available to meet site-specific and regulatory criteria. 800-321-6960;

Lowridge Onsite Technologies OSCAR-II
The OSCAR-II from Lowridge Onsite Technologies is a system combining a traditional mound and subsurface drip dispersal. The ground surface is prepared with a 6-inch layer of C-33 sand. Coils are placed on the sand and covered with another 6-inch layer of sand. Effluent (STE, secondary or tertiary) is micro dosed every 4 minutes. STE will be reduced to 2/2 CBOD5/TSS and 700 fecal coliform/100 ml, MPN. The system has a small footprint and shallow soil depth requirements. Other treatment technologies can be used in conjunction to meet additional treatment requirements. 877-476-8823;
