Grinder pump station services challenging sites
Said to provide better service to geographically difficult sites, E/One Extreme Series positive displacement grinder pumps can run at about half the operation and maintenance budget of conventional gravity sewers. The pump station collects wastewater from the home, grinds up any solids, then moves the effluent through small-diameter (114 in. to 4 in.) pipe to treatment. System offers total dynamic head of 185 ft. Company projects mean time between service calls at approximately 15 years with zero preventive maintenance. Available in Wetwell/Drywell, Wetwell (shown), Indoor and Gatorgrinder stations and for aftermarket upgrades. Environment One Corp., Niskayuna, N.Y.
