|The Next Generation in Waste Water Treatment Technology
Is The Only Closed Loop Recycle System Designed For Marinas and Boatyards That Uses NATURAL AIR to Control Bad Odors,
Degrade Hydrocarbons, removes Heavy Metals and is Simple to Operate with Low Maintenance.
If you are pressure washing a boat before painting, sanding or repairing or just washing a boat. The need to control where the wash water goes is important. RECYCLING IS AN
OPTION THAT MEETS ALL ENVIRONMENTAL REGULATION NOW AND IN THE FUTURE.

The Next Generation in Waste Water Treatment Technology has a long history working very close with State Environmental
Departments, EPA, owners and operators of Marinas and Boatyard, to make sure we are providing The Best Treatment
Technology available. The fact that technology for preserving the environment is evolving demands that we constantly re-evaluate
our approach to waste water treatment. There is no room for the statues quo, we must think outside the box.
The Next Generation is listed in Florida's DEP "Sources For Best Management Practices" hand book.
In Charleston South Carolina The Next Generation worked with Charleston City Marina owner, engineer and DEP to restore an old
boatyard in Wando S.C. to become the first Clean Boatyard in South Carolina.
In Massachusetts The Next Generation worked with Manchester Marine, engineering company, and EPA to provide our closed
loop recycle system under the 319 Non-Point Source Pollution Grant Program Project 04-12/319, which is also used as a training
tool for other marinas.
The New Jersey Marine Sciences Consortium has approved The Next Generation in Waste Water Treatment
technology closed loop recycle system for the Marina Industry Enhancement (MIE) Grant.

Considerations in the Selection and Operation of Wash Water Recycle System for Marinas and Boatyards
So you are thinking about purchasing a closed loop recycle system for your marina. You have salesmen spelling out the advantages of their system,
and with the regulations pertaining to pressure washing boats getting tighter and tighter companies that manufacture pressure washers are
marketing their own brand of closed loop pressure wash water recycle system for marinas. So which one should you chose?
In the world of waste water treatment technology The Next Generation in Waste Water Treatment technology has been able to stay ahead of the
competition by sometimes thanking outside the box. This comes from years of designing and building waste water treatment and recycling systems
for fortune 500 companies, the military, metal plating shops, radiator shops, rental yards, marinas and boatyards. We find that each industry has its
own unique problems; The Next Generation in Waste Water Treatment Technology is dedicated to waste water treatment and recycling problems of
No matter what a salesman tells you about their closed loop recycle system, operating a wash water recycle system can be an expensive, labor
intensive and a frustrating experience. Foul odors, poor water quality, failed mechanical equipment and baffled employees are the frequent result of a
poorly designed recycle system. “Remember the bitterness of a poorly designed recycle system still remains long after the sweetness of low cost is
forgotten”. Many vendors carry “off-the-shelf” recycle systems and although they may have the basic components required, the system may lack the
refinement necessary to meet the required water quality for marinas and boat yards. So let’s examine some of the recycle systems that are being
marketed to marinas and boatyards.
The first recycle system consists of a tank to collect the wash water a filter to remove the solids and a pump to supply pressure to the pressure
washer. There are too many problems with system to try to cover in this text.
The second system uses a cyclone separator to remove solids. The Cyclonic Filtration system uses centrifugal force using a tangential entry to direct
the water to flow in a rotational pattern within the filter vessel. Gravitational forces are used to separate large particles, which in turn are purged from
the filter vessel continuously into a collection tank. The design of this system recycles the water through the cyclonic filter multiple times to increase
the filter effectiveness. In their operation instruction,” if the solids discharge port becomes plugged a wire is used to clean out the discharge
port”. In a marina environment MURPHY’S LAW says it’s not if the discharge port plug’s it’s when this discharge port plugs. Who is going to be
watching this phase of the operation, there are no alarms or signals that the discharge port is plugged. As the water becomes more and more
contaminated with solids the next problem is the pressure washer. As it discharges dirty water under high pressure the solids will damage the
pressure washer, cause poor cleaning, could damage the finish on the boat, and have hazardous over spray. Even if the unit is mounted on a
trailer next to the cleaning operation by the time the operator is aware of the problem it may be too late and the damage to the pressure washer
and boat finish is already done. Can you afford replacing the pressure washer or the damage to a million dollar boat finish?
Other closed loop recycle systems are better designed to cover the drawbacks of the simpler recycle systems, however to accomplish this, the
process becomes more complex.
CARBON FILTERS; to remove Copper and other Heavy Metals this requires replacing or having the carbon regenerated it’s difficult to tell when the
carbon is spent, and the cost of disposal and regenerate the carbon is ongoing.
ELECTRO COAGULATION; this technology is expensive, complex control system using micro processor technology, and difficult to trouble shoot
ENCLINE PLATES; used to cause solids to stick to plastic plate set at an angle, this is what we call single pass technology where waste water is
pass through the plate area at a very slow flow 5 to 10 GPM allowing the solids to settle on the plates and fall into a collection tank.
CHEMICAL COAGULATION; this technology has been around for a long time and a proven technology in the waste water treatment industry. In the
marina and boatyard environment we find that this technology is not required.
OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE
Regardless of what a salesman tells you there will be maintenance required of any recycle system. The single most important item in operation of a
recycle system is maintenance. Like any other equipment or mechanical device, periodic systems checks and routine maintenance will be required to
keep operation at peak performance. Recycle systems are not a “black box” where dirty water goes in and clean water comes out.
As explained above, design, installation, operations and maintenance considerations contain many common sense items. Moreover, design,
installation, and operation and maintenance should be view as coactive in nature rather than as separate items in the selection of a recycle system.
Using a common sense approach will result in a satisfied owner/operator.
