The portable unit for on-site filtration of polluted fire suppression discharge.
Fire suppression sprinkler system discharge contains dangerous pollutants like lead, mercury, and chlorine. While some fire protection professionals and in-house maintenance personnel transport this discharge to a safe disposal site during regular tests and maintenance, time and cost make this method infeasible for most. Instead, the polluted water is often discharged onto parking lots or diverted into landscaping, where it can find its way into storm drains, other receiving waters, or percolate into the ground water table.
The EcoSmart Filter
The Eco(Smart) Filter was invented by a fire protection engineer who understands the challenges of legally and responsibly flushing sprinkler systems. It is a practical solution for avoiding illicit discharges. This is the simple solution for regulatory compliance and corporate responsibility.
The ecological threat posed by pollutants like lead, mercury, and chlorine in fire sprinkler discharge is well recognized, but there hasn’t been a simple and effective solution – until now. Federal and military can use the EcoSmart as a best management practice in accordance with Executive Orders 13514 and 13693.
