Handpump Chlorinator/Filter System

The San Dimas center has been evaluating a new water treatment system at the Umpqua National Forest in Oregon this summer. This chlorinator/filter system for remote sites was designed by Saxon Research Systems to provide potable water from a handpump. The proprietary design mixes a controlled ratio of concentrated chlorinated water with well water. The unit is a stand-alone system with overall dimensions of 42 by 19 by 42 inches. It has a dry weight of 160 pounds, including the 30-gallon detention tank. The standard diverter chamber is designed for direct installation into the Baker Monitor handpump. A custom diverter chamber is needed for other handpumps.
