The replacement drive to be supplied by WesTech, who is the original equipment manufacturer, is a direct replacement for the existing drive. WesTech is the only available source for the direct replacement assembly.
Contact Basin No. 5 is one of eight basins which provide the softening capacity for the drinking water produced by the Courtney Bend Water Plant. In order to ensure this basin continues to operate in an efficient and reliable manner, this drive needs to be replaced.
