Important Updates for Wastewater Treatment OSCAR Technology in Washington

OSCAR technology Washington

The year 2020 has brought with it many new challenges and opportunities. We’ve also seen an increased demand for water treatment technologies (enhanced septic systems). This is largely due to increased housing starts.

Because of this demand we have seen the OSCAR technology being used in a more generic way, instead of only where space for drainfields is limited. OSCAR is now being utilized where conventional systems could be used for a number of reasons, including cost, ease of installation, familiarity with the OSCAR, and space savings. There have been several OSCAR technology upgrades in 2020 as well.

Plastic Insulation Sheet

A half-inch thick, closed cell plastic insulation sheet completely encases the interior of the headworks box – bottom, sides, and top. This plastic, closed cell material never gets “wet” so the insulation quality of the material is always active.

Solid State Relays

Another OSCAR upgrade are the solid state relays. The solid state relays replace the motor contractors inside the electrical control panel. The net benefit here is that the panel can be mounted on the exterior wall of a house which is noiseless whenever the pump turns on. 


OSCAR-in-a-Box is an OSCAR technology system built inside a liner, similar to a fish pond liner. In this arrangement the OSCAR is a treatment unit that collects the treated wastewater and can then be dispersed into another drainfield technology, such as a drip field, where the property is too steep for an OSCAR dispersal unit.

As a contractor, you can purchase this technology from one of our distributors in Washington.
