Check for large floc particles and foam in the water in the erdlator tank caused by inadequate agitation or
leaks on the suction side of the raw water pump.
Increase the agitator mixing speed and tighten the suction hose connections. No air bubbles should
appear in the raw water sight glass.
Check for slurry pool remaining too high, due to excessive input flow.
Adjust the input flow valve CV-9 (fig. 2-10) to 50 gpm.
Check for no rotation in the slurry pool at maximum agitator speed.
Increase the input flow to at least 50 gpm.
