16. Effluent filters: An effluent filter intended to prevent clogging may be integrated into the primary treatment system or be installed between the primary treatment system and another treatment system.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, an effluent filter must be installed where a disposal system is built with a low pressure feed system.
Effluent filters must retain solids with a diameter or edge greater than 3.2 mm and be installed so as to allow for maintenance and cleaning.
