The “BeST Clear system™” for pool backwash recycling is available in a 95 gallon – 430-liter tank. It is made of Low Density, UV-resistant durable Polyethylene which is noncorrosive and rust-free. All fittings are included.
The optional Inline Chlorinator is installed inside the tank. When the backwash water flows through the unit, small amounts of the chlorine tablets dissolve in the water and flow into the “BeST Clear System™”.
The dosage of chlorine is manually controlled, which heightens or lowers the chlorine into the flow of incoming water. We recommend the maximum dosage to allow for the water to stand for 7- 14 days – but min 24 hours during the sedimentation process. Calcium hypochlorite or HYPO-CHLOR is mild calcium-based chlorine in a very stable dry tablet form.
Hypo-chlor has been specifically designed to dissolve slowly and consistently. It is dispensed from your inline chlorinator, is easy to use, and cost-effective.
When the chlorinator is empty, you just refill it. As a sanitizer, HYPO-CHLOR is much more versatile and effective than other chemicals or systems used for environmental sanitation.
It is approved for both drinking water and food contact surfaces, even at high concentrations, and is highly effective in controlling unwanted odors. It is much safer and less corrosive than chlorine gas and is more efficient and affordable than liquid chlorine bleach.
It is also not susceptible to bacterial resistance formation as is the case with organic disinfectants such as quaternary ammonium-based biocides.
*Always refill the chlorinator with the identical chlorine compound ingredient to avoid dangerous fumes or explosion. If you are not sure, wait til all the chlorine dissolves, then refill.
4.3 By-pass/waste valve
The system also has the ability to bypass the “BeST Clear System™” tank. If the water to be sent to waste is too contaminated with sludge to be stored, use the by-pass option to redirect the “wasted” water into the by-pass outlet and bypass the tank. The bypass Outlet should be directed to a sewer cleanout or large containment area.
4.4 The outlet valve on the
tank diverts the cleared backwash water through the filter into your swimming pool.The waste port (lowest opening) is used typically once a year to drain the tank of all the sediment and sludge. The waste outlet plug should only be used when you have a build-up of sludge at the bottom of the tank and are prepared to shop-vac the sludge out.
4.5. Installation Installing the tank
The tank needs to be placed on a solid base. No need for concrete (we do recommend a concrete or prefab pad), but it is very important that the base is leveled and solid in order to store 95 gallons/430 liters of water. (750-800 lbs or 340-360kg)
4.6 Installing the inlet supply
Connect your new or current pool backwash outlet to the “BeST Clear System™” 1.5” inlet pipe. Ensure that all fittings and pipes are PVC glued once all the pipe work is in place.
4.7 Installing the by-pass/waste outlet A 1.5” by-pass/waste outlet is provided.
This outlet needs to or should be connected to a backwash waste location, sewer cleanout or large contained landscape area. Ensure that no water will overflow or escape the area. Check all fittings and pipes are PVC glued once all the pipe work is in place. This is ideal.
YOUR “BeST Clear System™” SHOULD ALWAYS BE HIGHER THAN YOUR SWIMMING POOL – then recycled water will flow back to your pool (recommended reuse enter @ skimmer) with gravity, unless you plumb the recycle line to the suction on the pump for future automation.
