In order to verify the treatment performance of newly developed johkasous with membrane separation, for household use, three johkasous of different types were used for experimental study. It was found that each of these johkasous has a high treatment performance for removing BOD, nitrogen, and can be operated steadily by monitoring the function and maintaining the devices at every three months and by withdrawing accumulated sludge at every six months. It was also found that periodical cleaning of the membrane by sodium hypochlorite solution and neutralizing cleaning wastewater by sodium thiosulfate solution at every six months is important to maintain a steady permeability of the membranes. No adverse effects on treatment performance was observed by leached sodium hypochlorite solution from the membrane at membrane cleaning.
