FAQ

Electrical and rotating parts in the wastewater? Isn`t it a high-maintenance and interference-prone product?

No! Many people have still the opinion, that pumps and electrical parts in the wastewater lead often to breakdowns. ATB uses only long-lived tested appliances. Pumps are especially designed for the use in water. Furthermore pumps and submerged aerators are working very efficiently. Moreover in the AQUAmax all aggregates are attached in the area of clear, solid-free water, which prevent an untimely abrasion. More over 60.000 assembled AQUAmax-plants national and international speak for itself.
