Re: Lectra San, Pros and Cons
LectraScans process black water, removing the bacteria to the extent it surpasses all municipal sewage treatment, but it does not pump, and is not a head.
To work properly it requires salt water, and we found in someplaces on the Bay there is not enough salt in the raw water so a salt injection tank is needed, easy to add, but a bit of a pain to keep full.
The unit draws approx 15 amps for about 2 minutes for each cycle. Each cycle should occur each time you flush.
The unit is sealed and not maint intensive, with biggest job for winterization. Recommend once a year flush through some Muriatic Acid or Raritan's CH product to remove scaling.
We have a Diverter at the Electroscan outlet so we can divert the output to a holding tank when we are in a NDZ (like the Keys).
I recommend you pull up the owners manual and installation manual from the Raritan website, it will provide a lot of info for you.
