Houses and homes
Whether building a new home or renovating an old house, sometimes it can be a challenge to place the bathroom exactly where you would like it to be. Jets™ vacuum systems give you total freedom to build the house of your dreams, without having to worry about where to install large diameter pipes that depend on gravity for sewage transport.
Thin vacuum pipes with a diameter of only 2 inches (50mm) transport sewage faster, more efficient and more reliably than a traditional gravity/water system could ever do. The piping can even be installed vertically in thin walls and in ceilings, because vacuum systems are able to lift sewage upward from the toilet. This enables home owners to place bathrooms in basements where a gravity toilet installation would not have been possible.
Small discharge pipes
If the vacuum piping is thin, the discharge pipes that connect our systems to public sewer lines are even thinner. In house and home installations a 32mm (1-1/4") pipe is usually installed. Because all sewage is macerated to a fine pulp in our Vacuumarator™ pumps before discharge, there is no clogging of the pipes despite their small diameter. And just like the vacuum piping, discharge pipes can lift sewage to a higher level.
Vacuum On Demand (VOD) or Constant Vacuum System (CVS)?
Small systems totalling less than 4 toilets and/or greywater interface tanks can be installed as VOD systems. Larger systems should be installed as a Constant Vacuum System solution, maintaining vacuum in the pipes at all times. If in doubt, contact us so we can help you with the system design.
Ideal for cabins too
How does it sound to have the same level of sanitary comfort in your cabin as you have in your bathroom at home? That thought is no longer as far-fetched as it may sound. Have a look at our product packages, some of which can be used without mains power and water. These compact systems from Jets™ have already made life just a little bit easier for thousands of cabin owners around the world.
