Featured In "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" Episode
Singulair residential wastewater treatment system was featured on
an episode of ABC Television’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
It’s a great honor
to be selected by this Emmy-Award winning production that’s on ABC Television. It makes
good sense, too, when you consider the show’s concept. Every week,
a deserving family is selected to win a new home or to have their
present home rebuilt by a team of designers and contractors; and
there is this special twist – the show’s teams have only seven days
to build or rebuild that new house. Each episode of the popular TV
show is a self-contained race against time and budget on a project
that would normally require at least four months to complete.
Everything, including the exterior and landscape, must be completed
in one week.
Now consider these
two facts: the Norweco Singulair system is the state-of-the-art
alternative to a troublesome septic tank; and it is designed for
fast, easy installation. The show and Singulair make a perfect fit.
featuring the Singulair system brought together designers,
contractors and hundreds of volunteers who worked under the
direction of Royce Builders, a company with locations in
Dallas, Phoenix, Charlotte and Atlanta. Royce has built more than
15,000 houses in the Houston area alone since 1986. Mark Dunham, of
Royce Builders, called our distributor, Hurt’s Wastewater
Management, in Ganado, Texas, to order the Singular system for the
and Monica Kubena and their seven children are owners of the new
house. It replaces their small trailer home near East
Bernard, Texas. The
trailer’s wastewater was going into a leaking, old, anaerobic septic
tank. The Kubena’s identical 7-year-old twin daughters, Sara and
Tara, suffer from leukemia. The family desperately needed more space as
well as a more sanitary living environment, something Norweco’s
Singulair system is now providing, thanks to ABC Television.
The Singulair system was selected by Royce Builders and the
show producers because it’s a trouble-free answer to domestic
wastewater disposal. It insures a safe, sanitary home environment.
A Singulair system is especially ideal wherever space is limited or
soil conditions are poor. The system employs the extended
aeration process and provides flow equalization, aeration, clarification,
tertiary filtration and optional chemical treatment inside a single precast concrete tank. It uses only one mechanical component – a
fractional horsepower aerator that runs at 1725 RPM. Singulair is
certified with a 30-minute per hour run time. The system’s patented
Bio-Kinetic device -- an integral component of the system -- assures
that all flow is completely treated. Only safe, clear and sanitary
effluent is released into the environment.
producers, Endemol USA, and their team of volunteer contractors also
liked the fact that the Singulair system complies with USEPA
wastewater treatment guidelines. The system meets all
requirements of NSF/ANSI Standard 40 and has been evaluated, listed
and/or licensed by NSF International, the Canadian Standards
Association, Underwriters Laboratories and the Federal
Communications Commission. Furthermore, it is backed by
Norweco’s extensive warranty and exchange program. Singulair
is designed for domestic wastewater flows that range from 500 to
1,500 gallons per day. The system is only available from
local, licensed, factory-trained Norweco distributors.
In addition to the
fact that our Singulair system is made to order
for a TV show
that focuses on cost effective, high quality residential renovation,
there’s this additional reason why we make such a perfect fit:
of this episode, “Extreme
Makeover: Home Edition” has rewarded 80 deserving families with
new or completely rebuilt homes. The show’s producers, volunteer
designers and contractors have helped rebuild houses in areas that
have suffered natural disasters, including residences in
Mississippi, Florida, Texas and New Orleans. Norweco is also
committed to helping and protecting the communities we serve.
Whether supporting a T-ball league or initiating a disease
prevention program or helping a family facing economic trouble, the
Norweco family is here to serve.
