Filter Bay and Trough Cleaning

In utility water distribution systems, filter walls and troughs become coated with organic and inorganic deposits. These accumulations cause unsightly stains and contribute to chlorine demand and the formation of disinfection by-products. Deposits diminish the useful life of protective coatings and degrade uncoated concrete surfaces.

Before Blue Earth Products, the only practical way to deal with these deposits was to hand scrub or power wash filter bays, both of which are labor intensive and potentially damaging to surfaces. Alternatively, an off-line process using Blue Earth Products Filter Fit® reduces filter cleaning time from days to hours without damaging filter bay infrastructure. Filter Fit removes all types of organic and inorganic deposits including iron, manganese, potassium permanganate, calcium scale, biofilms and algae.
