Ecoflo Treatment Systems – ST Series Models (Open Bottom Treatment Units)
Ecoflo treatment units with open bottom are models ST-500, ST-570P, ST-650, ST-650P and ST-730P. Table 1 provides themaximum hydraulic loading rate on the organic filtering media (peat) and the maximum treatment capacity of each model. ST Models – Open Bottom Treatment Units
Daily Design Sanitary Maximum Hydraulic Loading Rate Demand Filtering Media Volume, m³ Dose, L/m³ per day Notes to Table 1
(1) When the total daily design sanitary sewage flow exceeds 2 565 L, more than one Ecoflo unit could be used to meet the required flow.
The Ecoflo®Biofilter treatment unit consists of an enclosure confining a compact high-performance organic filter medium(peat), a distribution system that is constituted of a tipping bucket and distribution plates to evenly distribute the septic tankeffluent on the top of the filter medium, and a built-in ventilation/aeration system. The treatment unit is preceded by a standard septic tank complete with an effluent filter on the outlet to screen out particleslarger than 1.6 mm. Depending on the site configuration, the septic tank effluent can be fed to the Ecoflo®Biofilter bygravity or overflows to a pump chamber. When needed, the pump chamber used to pump out the septic tank effluent to thetreatment unit has to have a minimum effective holding capacity of 0.9 times the daily sanitary sewage design flow andshould be equipped with a minimum 0.3 HP pump complete with level switches, alarm and control panel with a minimum 38 mm dia. discharge pipe, ball valve and a flow controller, terminating in an Ecoflo®Biofilter unit. The above Ecoflo®Biofilter ST models are placed on a minimum of 200 mm thick layer of crushed stone (15 to 50 mm dia.)or gravel. Treated effluent is collected by means of a device under the stone layer and directed through a 100 mm dia. pipeto a separate effluent dosing chamber. The dosing chamber has a minimum effective volume of not less than half of the dailydesign sanitary sewage flow (Q) and is equipped with a minimum 0.3 HP effluent pump, activated by a conventional on/offfloat in the chamber or control panel for time dosing. The alarm float is connected to an alarm panel placed inside or outsidethe building on an independent electrical circuit. The treated effluent is then dosed to a shallow buried trench system.
Ecoflo Treatment Systems – STB Series Models (Closed Bottom Treatment Units)
The Ecoflo®Biofilter closed bottom models are listed in Table 2. These models are the same as "ST Models" with respect tothe loading rates on the organic filtering media (peat) and the treatment capabilities, except that they come in a closed bottomconfiguration. The treatment unit is also preceded by a standard septic tank complete with an effluent filter on the outlet toscreen out particles larger than 1.6 mm. Depending on the site configuration, the septic tank effluent can be fed to theEcoflo®Biofilter by gravity or overflows to a pump chamber where it is pumped out to be distributed over the media insidethe treatment unit. SB-5 Page 47
Supplementary Standard SB-5
In these closed bottom models, the treated effluent is collected and stored, in whole or in part, in the collecting layerunderneath the filtering media as provided in Column 3 and Column 4 of Table 2. Some concrete models provide enough storage capacity such that a separate dosing chamber is not required. For thesemodels, the bottom of the concrete shell must have a storage capacity for the treated effluent that is not less than 0.9 of thetotal daily design sanitary sewage flow. The treated effluent is then dosed to a shallow buried trench system.
Fiberglass and polyethylene models have part of the treated effluent stored at the bottom of the treatment unit and the rest ofthe treated effluent is directed to, and stored in a separate pump chamber located outside the treatment unit. The effectivestorage volume of the treated effluent stored at the bottom of the treatment unit as well as the volume of the treated effluentstored in the separate dosing chamber are provided in Column 3 and Column 4 of Table 2 for each different Ecoflo®BiofilterSTB model. The separate dosing chamber must have a capacity of not less than 0.5 of the total daily design sanitary sewageflow (Q). The dosing chamber for the treated effluent is equipped with a minimum 0.3 HP effluent pump, activated by aconventional on/off float in the chamber or control panel for time dosing. The alarm float is connected to an alarm panelplaced inside or outside the building on an independent electrical circuit. The treated effluent is then dosed to a shallowburied trench system.

Explanatory Material for SB-12

A-Table 1.4.1.2. National Fenestration Rating Council.
National Fenestration Rating Council 6305 Ivy Lane, Suite 140 Greenbelt, MD 20770, USA web site: www.nfrc.org A-2.1.1. Compliance Packages.
Individual components of compliance packages found in Tables 2.1.1.2.A, 2.1.1.2.B and 2.1.1.2.C and Tables 2.1.1.3.A,
2.1.1.3.B and 2.1.1.3.C are not permitted to be mixed with similar components of other compliance packages either found
within the same Table or similar components of compliance packages found in other Tables.
A-2.1.1.1.(3) Mechanical Equipment.
Compliance package tables referred to in this Sentence contain energy efficiency requirements for some or all mechanical
equipment. Where a compliance package includes an energy efficiency level for space heating equipment, domestic hot
water heater or heat recovery ventilator, conformance with the package can only be achieved if the building is equipped
with the mechanical equipment specified in the compliance package.
A-2.1.1.1.(7), (8) and (10) Fenestration to Wall Ratio.
When the fenestration to wall ratio is calculated, all fenestration areas and the entire peripheral wall above grade is
included. The peripheral wall area includes floor rim board areas and all above grade wall areas. It is essentially the sum
of the above grade walls that separate conditioned spaces from unconditioned spaces, and adjacent units. In the case of an
attached garage, the walls that are common with the house and the garage are also included in the wall area calculations.
For attached homes, the above grade portions of the walls that are common to other conditioned units are also included in
the wall area. The fenestration area is based on the rough structural opening provided for windows, skylights, sliding glass
doors, and for glazed portions in doors. For A–Frame structures with steeply inclined roofs that also act as walls, the roof
portion that serves as the interior wall area can be considered as the wall area in calculating the fenestration to wall ratio.
A-2.1.1.2.(6)(a), (8)(a), (9)(a) RSI Reduction of Above Grade Walls in Conjunction
with Upgrading U-Value of Glazing - Zone 1.
Where the above grade wall insulation is permitted to be reduced to RSI 3.52, one of the required compensating measuresis to upgrade the window U-Value in accordance with Clauses 2.1.1.1.(8)(a) to (c). This upgrade is independent of theglazing upgrade that may be required due to a fenestration ratio that is higher than 17%. In cases where the above gradeinsulation is reduced to RSI 3.52 and compensated for with a fenestration upgrade, and the building has more than 17%fenestration, the glazing would be required to be upgraded a second time.
SB-12 Page 25
Supplementary Standard SB-12
A-2.1.1.3.(6)(a) and (7)(a) RSI Reduction of Above Grade Walls in Conjunction with
Upgrading U-Value of Glazing - Zone 2.
Where the above grade wall insulation is permitted to be reduced to RSI 3.52, one of the required compensating measuresis to upgrade the window U-Value in accordance with Clauses 2.1.1.1.(8)(a) to (c). This upgrade is independent of theglazing upgrade that may be required due to a fenestration ratio that is higher than 17%. In cases where the above gradeinsulation is reduced to RSI 3.52 and compensated for with a fenestration upgrade, and the building has more than 17%fenestration, the glazing would be required to be upgraded a second time.
A-2.1.1.6.(1) Permitted Basement Insulation Gap.
The provision refers to the gap between basement insulation and the floor level that might be left at the bottom of a
foundation wall. Insulation can be extended from the underside of the subfloor to the floor level of the basement, or a gap
may be left provided that the gap is not more than 200 mm when measured from floor level to where the insulation is
terminated.
A-2.1.1.6.(5) and (6) Slab Insulation.
Except where specifically required in a compliance package, the entire surface of the slab is only required to be insulated
when the entire concrete slab is completely within 600 mm of the exterior ground level. A typical example would be a slab
on ground construction without a basement. If a slab is partially at the exterior ground level (i.e. a walkout basement) or
partially within 600 mm of the exterior surface, then only those parts are required to be insulated with perimeter insulation.
Where a slab of a house is completely or partially within 600 mm of the exterior ground level, either the entire surface ofthe slab or the perimeter of the slab is required to be insulated but not at both locations.
A-2.1.1.10.(1) Additions to Existing Houses.
In Clause 2.1.1.10.(1)(a), the design and construction of an addition to an existing house can conform to the minimum
building envelope and mechanical equipment requirements where an applicable compliance package is selected from Article
2.1.1.2. or 2.1.1.3.
Alternatively, Clause 2.1.1.10.(1)(b) provides a simpler approach and permits an addition to an existing building to complywith the appropriate column in Table 2.1.1.10. since the design and construction of an existing building is unlikely to bedetermined and matched against an applicable compliance package from Article 2.1.1.2. or 2.1.1.3. Table 2.1.1.10. further exempts both an addition and an existing building from conforming to minimum efficiencyrequirements for HRV's, domestic hot water heaters and space heating equipment required in Article 2.1.1.2. or 2.1.1.3. This would permit existing mechanical equipment to serve the entire building provided that it has the necessary capacity.
A-2.1.1.10.(2) Sunroom Additions to Existing Houses.
A sunroom addition to an existing house referred in this Sentence applies to a one-storey structure built substantially with
wall/roof fenestration and glass doors but which sometimes contain unglazed low wall panels that support wall glazing
above it. Since the glazing percentage of sunrooms exceeds the limits permitted for compliance packages in Articles
2.1.1.2. and 2.1.1.3. and performance compliance methods may not be possible, these sunrooms are exempt from
compliance package requirements, provided that the thermal performance of the glazing is enhanced further than what is
required for non-sunroom additions.
The maximum U-Values for doors, sliding glass doors, wall glazing and supporting wall panels for sunroom additions inClause 2.1.1.10.(2)(a) have been derived from the maximum U-Values for window and sliding glass doors in additions toexisting buildings in Table 2.1.1.10. and then upgraded in accordance with Sentence 2.1.1.1.(8).
The maximum U-Value of 2.6 for roofs and skylights for sunroom additions in Clause 2.1.1.10.(2)(b) has been derivedfrom upgrading the maximum U-Value of 2.8 for skylights in additions to existing buildings in Table 2.1.1.10. consistentwith the methodology used in Sentence 2.1.1.1.(8).

A-2.1.1.11.(4)(a) Drain Water Heat Recovery Units for Showers.
For the purpose of the prescriptive trade off provisions in Subsection 2.1.1., the term "all showers" includes the case
where there is only one shower in a dwelling unit. If there is only one shower, that shower is required to be connected to a
drain water heat recovery unit. Where there are two or more showers, drain water from at least two showers are required
to be connected to a single drain water heat recovery unit or to two individual drain water heat recovery units.
A-2.1.2.1. Application of Performance Compliance Path.
This Article requires two annual energy use simulations. These simulations compare the simulated annual energy use of
the proposed building with the simulated annual energy use of an applicable compliance package. The simulated annual
energy use of the proposed building cannot exceed the simulated annual energy use of an applicable compliance package.
Where a performance compliance path is selected, it is the intent of Sentence 2.1.2.1.(2) that the performance level of thecompliance package takes into account the requirements listed in Subsection 2.1.1. that are applicable to that compliancepackage. Similarly, the annual energy use calculation for a compliance package referenced in Clause 2.1.2.1.(3)(b) shalltake into account the requirements listed in Subsection 2.1.1. that are applicable to that compliance package.
For the purpose of calculating the annual energy use of a proposed design and a design based on a selected compliancepackage, the following software may be used: • HOT2000 version 9.34c or newer versions• other software referenced by the Energuide Rating System• RESNET accredited Home Energy Rating System (HERS) software, such as: • OptiMiser• EnergyGauge• EnergyInsights• REM/Rate A-2.1.3.1. Other Acceptable Compliance Methods.
Compliance with the technical requirements of the Energy Star Program may be achieved using either the prescriptive path
or the performance path required by NRCan,"Energy Star for New Homes: Technical Specifications – Ontario".
Clause 2.1.1.1 of NRCan,"Energy Star for New Homes: Technical Specifications – Ontario" allows the designer to use anNRCan-approved compliance option described in NRCan, "Energy Star for New Homes: Compliance Options" (Ontario).
Only the technical provisions contained in NRCan,"Energy Star for New Homes: Technical Specifications – Ontario" andother Energy Star documents it references are mandatory under this Supplementary Standard. However, in addition to thetechnical requirements, the administrative requirements of the Energy Star documents may be used to demonstratecompliance with Sentence 2.1.3.1.(1) by obtaining an Energy Star label for the building.
