Orenco Systems Biotube ProPak

Biotube ProPak pump packages from Orenco Systems are complete and ready to install. They are used for filtering and pumping effluent from single- or dual-compartment septic tanks to gravity or pressurized discharge points. Pump vault technology eliminates the need for a separate dosing tank. Packages include a Biotube filter cartridge, which filters up to two-thirds of solids, so only liquid from the tank’s clear zone is pumped. Filters are easy to remove and clean without pulling the pump vault. All components are designed to be quickly installed and easily maintained. The PF Series high-head effluent pump is field serviceable and field repairable, and pump controls are designed for specific packages. Multiple models are available.
