Last week, we were lucky enough to have our friend Jon Parr of SchoolGrown come by for a visit. I had mentioned that our system design didn’t filter the water as nicely as I’d hoped. He suggested a swirl filter instead of the baffled clarifier we had originally installed. As much as I always enjoyed saying to folks that we have baffling clarification, I was ready to make the change. We made some adjustments and combined the two tanks to feed the new swirl filter, which happens to be the old clarifier with the baffle removed and a 45 degree elbow pointed sideways as the inlet to create the swirl. It seems to work better than the baffle. Thanks, Jon!
