FREE to members.
Fee for non-members $30+HST.


Have you noticed overtime that you are backwashing your filters more often and you are unable to meet quality targets? Have upstream conditions changed? Are you working within the design parameters? Is the media fouled? Can it be cleaned? Does the media need to be replaced? This session will provide the necessary tools for you to optimize your filter performance.


At the completion of this one-hour OJT session, participants will be able to demonstrate the following:

                      • Understand the basics of filters.

                      • Recognize different types of fouling.

                      • Identify corrective actions for poor performance.
