The Phos-4-Fade phosphorus removal filter is a patented, non-mechanical component that can be easily installed as part of any onsite wastewater treatment system. The Phos-4-Fade filter employs proprietary adsorptive media to significantly reduce total phosphorus in the effluent to levels that protect local waterways, while meeting or exceeding the most stringent regulations. Lakes, streams and rivers across North America are being plagued with high levels of nutrients. One of the most common nutrients is phosphorus that feeds algal blooms that jeopardize water sources for fishing, swimming, recreational use and even drinking.
The Phos-4-Fade filter was tested and certified by the Bureau de Normalisation du Quebec (BNQ) through their stringent 12 month test protocol, meeting CAN/BNQ 3680-600 Class P-II as well as NQ 3680-910 Class IV requirements. While satisfactorily completing this stringent test protocol, the Phos-4-Fade filter produced exceptional phosphorus reduction of 97.9%.
Flow enters the inlet chamber of the Phos-4-Fade filter where it then moves downward and passes into the media chamber through an array of transfer ports. Media support channels direct flow beneath the media where evenly spaced apertures provide uniform dispersal of the flow. Progressively sized layers of primary filtration media further distribute the flow to the adsorptive media layer. As the flow passes through the adsorptive media, final polishing takes place as phosphorus adheres to the porous media surfaces. The Phos-4-Fade filter is user friendly, easy to install and maintain, and provides effective total phosphorus removal for any onsite wastewater treatment system.
