Things to Do
Know the location of your control panel and check periodically for alarm conditions.
Keep a record of pumping, inspections, and maintenance.
Practice water conservation to reduce the amount of water going into the Jet system.
Learn the location of your Jet system and avoid constructing patios, decks, and paved surfaces over your system.
Diver roof drains and surface water away from your Jet system.
Keep sump pump water and house footing drains away from the Jet system.
Reduce heavy water usage periods by separating dish washing and laundry from shower time.
Use dryer sheets in the dryer in place of liquid fabric softeners in the wash cycle.
Use detergents without phosphates (i.e., Seventh Generation Free & Clear, Method 3x Concentrate, Arm & Hammer, Era, Oxdol).
Avoid these Items
Do not put any of the following items in your Jet system. They will cause serious damage to the plant’s biological process and equipment.
Plastic, sanitary products, scouring pads, condoms, mop strings, "disposable" diapers, towels, lint, rags, etc. These items will collect in your plant and require more requent pumping.
Paints, paint thinner, chemicals, grease, solvents and sanitizer. These kill the good bacteria in your plant.
Water softener backwash.
Heavy plumbing cleaners and toilet tank tablets that will kill off the good bacteria in your plant.
Don't use concentrated detergents, that contain phosphates, or liquid fabric softeners.
Anti-bacterial soaps can kill off the beneficial bacteria in your system.
Antiobiotics and chemotherapy can affect the performance of residential treatment plants.
