NuWater Owners Manual
The NuWater aerobic sewage treatment system is an extended aeration activated sludge process. This type of treatment depends primarily on the use of air that is introduced into the wastewater from your home as soon as it enters the treatment unit. When air is introduced, it promotes the growth of organisms that breaks down the organic solids in the wastewater producing inorganic and stable organic solids. This introduction of the air into wastewater is called aeration. Aeration provides dissolved oxygen that mixes with the wastewater promoting and sustaining the organisms or bacteria that break down the organic solids that enters treatment plant.
(1) Pretreatment Tanks, the first stage of the process receives raw sewage from the source and traps any non-biodegradable waste. (2) Aeration Chamber. Introduces oxygen into the wastewater by means of an extremely quit & efficient (6) Linear air pump. This aeration process creates an oxygen rich environment that becomes a favorable environment for the growth of aerobic bacteria. These microscopic organisms digest the solids in the wastewater. (3) Clarifier, the solids separate from the liquid and settle to the bottom. That matter is called activated sludge, which is returned to the aeration chamber to be remixed. The clear liquid separates from the solids and continues to flow upward to the discharge pipe where it passes through the (4) Chlorinator for disinfections. (Where required). (5) Holding Tank stores the chlorinated effluent for discharge through the chosen method of disposal. (7) NuWater Control Center monitors and controls the system, making it function at very low cost and maintenance to the homeowner.
