WW4 Effluent Filter

Clarus Environmental’s WW4 Effluent Filter helps prolong the life of an on-site system by filtering solids which may cause harm to downstream components such as drain fields.  The WW4 has a maximum flow rate of 4,000 gpd but may be installed in parallel with additional units for greater flows.  The WW4 includes a patented bypass protection screen to keep solids in the septic tank during cleaning.  The deep pleated filter design offers highly effective filtering and solids retention.  The filter is designed for easy installation in new or existing septic tanks and comes with a lifetime warranty.
