Could poor settling be a sign of wastewater upset? Read info from our lab on what your settling is telling you.
The bacteria in VitaStim Rebuild are selected for their ability to flocculate quickly, so they remain in the treatment plant instead of being washed out the back end. The biostimulants work to promote quick establishment of the new bacteria. When used in combination with a load of seed sludge, the biostimulants will boost the health of the sludge’s bacteria too.
One of the few things an operator can’t influence in their treatment plant is the influent. Greater use of biocides like peracetic acid (PAA) and Quaternary Ammonium compounds (quats) are making wastewater upset more common. The latest generation of biocides are more stable than ever, amplifying the problem.
Signs of Wastewater Upset:
- Ammonia spike
- Cloudy effluent
- MLSS color change
- Settling like a rock
In other cases, it might not be influent toxicity, but instead a disappearing mixed liquor. Slug loads of BOD, D.O. drops, and pH shifts are all potential reasons for an upset. It can also be as simple as getting “washed out” by a large rain event, or a large population of redworms (midge fly larvae) feeding on and destroying the bacteria population.
VitaStim Rebuild helps seed in heterotrophic floc-forming bacteria to rebuild a healthy mixed liquor that removes BOD and settles well. It can be used on its own, or in combination with fresh seed sludge.
Establish new bacteria and seed sludge when pairing with SmartBOD after an upset.

VitaStim Rebuild has been a godsend for us. It has really helped get the plant back to normal after a large dump from a local industry threw our plant into upset.
