MAK Water regularly installs Maric Flow Control valves in our water treatment plants. Doing so enables us to use the media filter feed pump as a backwash pump, resulting in cost savings by avoiding the need to install a dedicated backwash pump, whilst still controlling the backwash flow rate and protecting the pumps from damage. Typical cost savings range from $2,000 to more than $10,000, depending on the flow rates involved.

The Maric Flow Control valve is also critical in circumstances where the MAK Water Treatment Plant is designed to accept pressurised feed water supply; it provides a cost effective and reliable way to control the backwash flow rate without the need to control the client’s feed pump.
