Regarding your Home Aerobic Treatment Unit:

The components in your home plant should be serviced at least twice per year.

A trained service technician should be present when pumping the tanks to assure proper pumping and cleaning, to prevent damage to your system, and to restart your system.

GENERAL OPERATIONAL TIPS - AEROBIC TREATMENT UNITS:

UNIT MUST RUN 24 HOURS PER DAY: If leaving residence unoccupied for long periods of time, contact your distributor. Timers should not be installed on the aerator unless specifically authorized by your distributor.
