Testing and Implementation

Initial testing on the model showed even at the pump's maximum flow rate with the added gravitational head the model was not able to achieve the desired velocity (added gravitational head was one foot). A larger pump is needed, once the target velocity 0.2 ft/s is achieved the dissolved oxygen, filter ability, and basic durability testing will commence.
 

Pump Condition
Velocity (ft/s)
1/2 Rate
0.01
Full
0.01
1/2 Rate with added Head
0.03
Full with added Head
0.05

Testing on the Flow, water quality, pH, velocity and nitrate test were also performed which can be seen in detail in our report presented in the document archive.
