To determine water quality certified agencies take samples that are tested in a laboratory. The samples are tested on various factors, to determine if they suffice water quality standards.

Automatic Distribution Valves

Orenco automatic distributing valve assemblies are mechanically operated and sequentially redirect the pump's flow to multiple zones in a distribution field or treatment system. Valve actuation is accomplished by a combination of pressure and flow. Automatic distributing valve assemblies allow the use of smaller horsepower pumps on large sand filters and drainfields. For example, a large community drainfield requiring 300 gpm can use a six-line valve assembly to reduce the pump flow rate requirement to only 50 gpm.

We require the use of high-head effluent pumps with Biotube pump vaults to provide pressure and meet flow requirements, and to prevent debris from fouling valve operation. An inlet ball valve, a section of clear pipe (for monitoring), and a union for each outlet are provided for a complete assembly. Ideal valve location is at high point in system. Contact Orenco or your local Distributor for detailed design guidelines, including our document Orenco Automatic Distributing Valve Assemblies (NTP-VA-1).

Note: Distributing valve assemblies are warranted only for use with Orenco high-head filtered pumping systems.
