About Jet

Our Mission Statement: To be the #1 provider of advanced onsite wastewater treatment systems throughout the
world, while offering a superior product and outstanding customer service.

Founded in 1955, David S. MacLaren acted on an innovative idea. While working closely with his father, Albert
MacLaren, they designed and patented an aerator for family homes that would more effectively treat and dispose
of residential wastewater, changing the technology in the wastewater treatment business forever!
A close look at our competitors will highlight how much of an innovator we are as most of the competing
concrete tanks are modeled after our design, but they can’t copy another Jet innovation, our patented BAT® media.
This makes Jet the true pioneer and a leader in onsite wastewater treatment both in residential and commercial

Offering a high level of customer service and cutting edge products in an ever changing industry, Jet is the
LEADER in wastewater technology. Jet’s representatives design, install and service the best products in the

The Products
Jet concentrates on water pollution control, producing equipment and components for package wastewater treatment
plants. Starting with a residential plant, the company refined and worked with this product so that today it is the
most accepted, largest selling home plant in the country. Next, Jet added a complete line of commercial plants
designed to serve factories, apartments, hospitals, service stations, trailer parks, and dozens of similar installations
located beyond city sewer lines. To support its commercial plants Jet offers a complete line of optional equipment
and accessories.
A unique feature of Jet’s Commercial Plant is the patented Jet Air-Seal Diffuser® . The first truly non-clog diffuser
in the field, it has been acclaimed by health authorities and engineers.
Jet’s product lines also include JET-CHLOR® Wastewater Disinfectant Systems, CHLOR-AWAY® Dechlorination
Systems, Jet Tablet Feeders, BIO JET-7®, a natural, organic wastewater additive, Lift Stations, Liquid Level
Alarms, Controllers and a broad range of other wastewater treatment products and equipment.
Field-proven in thousands of installations, Jet plants have successfully undergone hundreds of testing programs
and performance evaluations at the local, state, and national levels.

The Distributor
Jet has a strong network of distributors licensed to sell, install, and service Jet Treatment Plants. Jet works with
these local distributors, guiding them with training and follow-up in engineering, production, sales and office
procedures. The company arranges frequent training seminars at its factory and sends factory specialists to aid the
distributor in his territory. Jet prides itself on this program of close cooperation with its distributors, and credits
this with being one of the major elements contributing to the distributors’ success.
As Jet’s management puts it: “Jet products plus Jet training plus Jet Distributors make an unbeatable pollution
control team.”

Aerator Silencer
1500 Series BAT® Media Plants
Sometimes, when a Jet Plant is located near a building, the sound of the aerator may be objectionable. In these
cases, installation of a Jet Aerator is recommended. The silencer is a disc-shaped device that is installed inside
the mounting casting above the aerator. The sound-absorbing qualities of the silencer reduce the aerator sound
to a whisper.
Engineered specifically for Jet Systems, the Jet Aerator Silencer has many outstanding features:
• Easy to Install. Takes only a few minutes to set in place inside the mounting casting.
• Never Needs Replacing. Constructed entirely of synthetic materials specifically for this application. It will not
corrode or deteriorate.
• Protected from Breakage. Installed within the mounting casting, it is completely protected from lawn mowers,
children, vandals or other equipment.
• Out-Of-View. Neatly hidden inside the mounting casting, the silencer does not detract from the plant’s
• Minimum Maintenance. A simple hosing off during routine maintenance is all that’s required.


The Jet Silencer works on the same principle as the muffler on your car or lawn mower. It acts as an expansion
chamber to decrease the air velocity, but not the volume. In addition, the sound waves are both cancelled and
absorbed by the baffles designed into the silencer.


Silencer or “2” Hose
The silencer can be used on either a flood proof or standard aerator
model. It is designed to fit only in a regular Jet Mounting Casting.
1. Remove aerator mounting casting cover.
2. Position electrical cable below aerator top.
3. Remove aerator’s outside air hose, if one is installed. Outside air
hose runs from top-center of aerator to vent in cover.
4. Place silencer so hole in bottom fits over hose adapter in aerator
top. If there is no hose adapter, install one end of 2” hose
(supplied with silencer) in hole in top of aerator. Install other end
of hose in hole in bottom of silencer.

I. First, unpack the unit and check for any damage in shipping. There are 7 sub-
assemblies that comprise the UV system, which are:

1.Disinfection, chamber – 3 inch ABS with 4-inch

inlet and outlet hubs.
2. Disinfection subassembly – anodized aluminum
frame, pure fused quartz sleeve, Teflon® cover,
packed inside the disinfection chamber.
3. PVC handle for disinfection subassembly.
4. Long Life_ UV lamp-packed inside the PVC
5. Riser pipe 4 inch ABS with a ¾ inch PVC
nipple at one end. The PVC handle and UV
lamp are packed inside.
6. Electrical subassembly – junction box with pre
wired alarm board, electronic ballast, and UV
lamp power cable.
7. Two 4-inch Sch 40 ABS pipe couplings.

Note: Inspect the unit upon receipt and report any damage.

There will be some additional items needed for installation, which are:

1. ABS cement (also multi purpose cement if bonding to PVC pipe)

2. Silicone sealant
3. Teflon tape
4. Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol
5. Glycerin (available from drug stores)
6. Wires

A schematic drawing of the unit is shown in figure 1.


1. Cut 4-inch riser pipe and lamp handle to meet job

needs. Use the 4-inch connection to the
pretreatment unit as a reference point. The lamp
handle upper end should be slightly below the ¾
inch nipple and the riser pipe.
2. Attach the threaded end of the lamp handle to the 1
inch threaded nipple on the upper end of the
disinfection subassembly, which is packed inside the
disinfection chamber. Teflon tape should be used to
seal the threads. Then remove the disinfection
subassembly by pulling the handle upward.
3. Bond the riser pipes and couplings and connect the
disinfection chamber to the upstream and
downstream (if any) pipes. The unit symmetrical
and either port can be used as the inlet (or outlet).
4. Inspect the disinfection subassembly. Using a clean, soft cloth and isopropyl
(rubbing) alcohol, clean the Teflon® cover and remove any fingerprints. Then
lubricate the rubber gaskets with either water or glycerin.

Note: Do not use silicone or petroleum based lubricants.

5. Slide the disinfection subassembly through the riser pipe into the disinfection
chamber using the handle. Make sure that the subassembly is at a right angle to
the inlet and outlet pipes, and that the holes on the upper hub of the subassembly
lock into two pins in the disinfection chamber. The orientation is very important
for successful UV unit operation.
6. The UV unit operates on 120 VAC single phase (50 or 60 HZ) power and
consumes 30 watts. A dedicated 10-15-amp breaker on the main electrical panel
should be used for service.
7. An electrical junction wiring diagram is shown in figure 2. Inlet power, ground
and alarm wires are fed through conduit to the ¾ inch nipple on the riser pipe.
Enough wire should be pulled through the riser pipe to reach about one foot
above it.
8. The wires should then be fed through the cord grip on the bottom sides of the
electrical junction box. The cord grip can accommodate five 12 AWG wires in
addition to those pre-wired.

9. Attach the wires to the terminal block as shown in figure 2. The wiring
schematic is also shown on the inside of the junction box cover.
10. The alarm contacts are compatible with both normally open (N/O) and normally
closed (N/C) external alarm units (furnished by others). They accommodate up
to 120 volts and up to 500 milliamps. Select the common and the contact that
complies with the receiving alarm panel.
11. Tighten the cord grip, attach the four pin connector to the UV lamp and carefully
lower the lamp through the handle. Be careful to not damage the quartz tube
during insertion.
12. Lower the ballast so that it is loosely attached to the PVC handle by the two tie
13. Place the electrical junction box on top of the 4 inch riser pipe. Tuck excess wire
into the riser pipe.
14. Turn the breaker at the main electrical panel on. The LED light on the side of the
junction box should now be on, indicating that the unit is operational.
15. Fill the recess in the bottom of the electrical junction box where the wires feed
into the cord grip with silicone sealant. Then replace the electrical junction box


1. In ground – couple the 4-inch inlet

to the exit pipe of the pretreatment
unit, and couple the 4-inch outlet to
the drain field pipe.
2. Pump tank – couple the UV unit inlet pipe to
the pretreatment unit exit pipe at the
entrance of the pump tank.
3. Figure 1 shows that the electrical junction
box should be above ground level. If this
should pose a problem with lawn mowers,
the box could be placed below grade in an irrigation or water meter box; or an
artificial rock could cover the junction box.

The Junction box is rated NEMA 4X. However, to be safe it should be protected from

In pump tank installations, care should be taken to prevent flooding of the junction box or
the ballast suspended below it.


The UV 3G disinfection unit is designed to provide long service life. It is

recommended that the UV lamp be replaced every two years to insure proper
disinfection. To replace the lamp:

1. Turn off the dedicated breaker located in the main

electrical panel that supplies power to the UV system.
2. Remove the electrical junction box and ballast from the
UV disinfection chamber and carefully set it aside.
3. Using the power line connected to the UV lamp, lift the
lamp out of the disinfection subassembly.
4. Disconnect the four pin connector attaching the power line to the
UV lamp.
5. Connect the new lamp to the four pin connector and completely
lower the new lamp into the UV subassembly.
6. Tuck the remaining power line into the riser pipe.
7. Make sure the ballast is still in position on subassembly handle and
insert the plastic section on the back side of the control center
enclosure into the top of the riser pipe.
8. Turn on the dedicated breaker located
in the main electrical panel that
supplies power to the UV system.

It is recommended that the disinfection subassembly

be removed and serviced a minimum of once per year to insure proper
effluent disinfection. To clean the Teflon® sheath and disinfection

1. Clean with a soft sponge and detergent.

2. Use isopropyl alcohol on a soft cloth to remove difficult stains like
finger prints and other films.

To start and expand their Jet Business, distributors need adequate trucks for tank delivery and setting. For this
job, the lightest truck recommended would be equivalent to the International 1700 series, the Ford 600 series, or
GMC 5700 models.
Tandem axle trucks may be desirable if heavy mud or snow conditions are frequently encountered. Tandem axles
generally perform well when the going is rough but they have the disadvantage of being difficult to maneuver in
tight areas. If the majority of the tank settings will be in built up areas or where little space is available, the single
axle truck may be the best choice.
All trucks should be capable of “off the road” operations and should have adequate bumpers so that they may be
either pushed or pulled by excavating equipment. Traction tires are definitely recommended on the rear axle.
Truck beds should have adequate space for Jet Tank Castings as well as the tank lid, riser sections, mounting
castings, tools and in many cases, a sampling box.

Truck mounted equipment capable of handling the tank or tank sections is necessary. This equipment should be
capable of lifting the castings from the truck bed, moving them over the excavation and setting them in place.
Preferably, the equipment controls should be located at the rear of the truck. The job should be accomplished
either hydraulically, mechanically or electrically without depending on any manual power. Equipment which
requires the driver to push the load away from the truck by hand should not be considered.
Jacks or outriggers will be needed for supporting the truck when the load is over the excavation.

To stretch delivery capacity and cut costs, a trailer to carry castings can be towed by the tank delivery truck.
Trailers can be loaded and unloaded by the tank handling equipment on the truck and can be used on jobs which
are close together or which require multiple castings. If two jobs are on the same route, the loaded trailer can be
left at the first job and then unloaded and towed home on the delivery truck’s return. The trailer and bed should
be of a size and capacity to at least carry a load equal to that of the delivery truck. If trailer use is anticipated, the
size of the truck engine and power train should be increased by 17,000 pounds. This assumes a 14,000 pound
maximum trailer load and a trailer weight of 3,000 pounds. Be sure to tell your dealer this is a “towed load.”

Before making any arrangements for delivery equipment, check your state’s trucking regulations with the State
Highway Patrol, particularly in regard to overall length and axle loads.


Recommended truck specifications for the various plants are listed in bold type. Extra capacity, even above
these recommendations, is always desirable. Absolute minimum specifications are given in parentheses. No
commercial plant can be hauled in one trip with-out a trailer, how ever the recommended 6’10” height allows for
delivery of two commercial castings per trip while anything less allows only room for one. The split home tank is
normally hauled stacked. If a 19’8” truck bed is available, it could be hauled end to end, thus reducing the height
