Standpipes are greater in depth than diameter and can exceed 140 feet (43 m) tall. They are extremely prone to short-circuiting, incomplete mixing and water quality decay, especially in summer when colder inlet water sinks, resulting in temperature stratification and increased water quality issues.
The TMS uses a vertical manifold with multiple Tideflex Inlet Nozzles at various elevations, which distribute momentum throughout the depth of the tank and achieve complete mixing. To eliminate short-circuiting, the Waterflex Outlet Valves are strategically located on the bottom of the TMS riser. For tanks with separate inlet and outlet pipes, the TMS is installed on the inlet pipe.
