Maintaining the Hydro-Cartridges® is also a simple process.
To determine solid levels, a measuring bar is inserted threw the grate and direct
readings are taken. A visual inspection of the absorbent pads can also be done
at this time. The grate does not need to be removed. When solid levels reach
close to the funnel tip a cleaning is performed.
Cleaning the Hydro-Cartridges® of solids is simple and inexpensive.
The funnel length can be adjusted to extend maintenance intervals.
Extract the water from the filter with a
pump to a 55 gallon drum or container. The filter can then be pulled
from the frame and the solids removed. The filter is then set back in
the frame, refilled with the water that was removed and the grate is
replaced. If a vacuum truck is used the filter need not be removed.
Replacing the absorbent material requires only lifting the grate for
access, sliding the zipper open, and replacing the polymer.
We recommend a visual inspection/measurement on a monthly basis and
cleanings to be determined by site requirements. Contact us if you would
