Chlorinators are devices that release chlorine into wastewater. They can often be found after the main treatment chamber on an aerobic system. Harmful pathogens that try leaving the septic system will be neutralized by the chlorine. Ensuring you have enough chlorine within your chlorinator is essential to properly treating the wastewater.
There are different types of chlorinators. Some chlorinators use liquid chlorine, and other chlorinators use solid tablets. Wholesale Septic Supply’s table feeders use chlorine tables that are approximately the size of a hockey puck. As wastewater flows through the chlorinator, it will have to touch the chlorine tablet. When that happens, chlorine will dissolve into the wastewater.
