Share Article

Pumps & Systems magazine co-presents with the Submersible Wastewater Pump Association (SWPA) to bring its next live webinar on "Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers" facilitated by Environment One Corporation's Walt Erndt.

Pumps & Systems, the magazine for pump users worldwide, presents the next edition of its Live Webinar Series on Dec. 11, 2008 at 1 p.m. Eastern. To register for the free Webinar, please visit http://www.pump-zone.com.

The Webinar--sponsored by Environment One Corporation, with secondary sponsorship from Emerson's™ US Motors® brand--is an introduction to pressure sewer systems designed to educate engineers, builders, developers, homeowners, young consulting engineers inexperienced in grinder pump systems and system design, industry groups without knowledge of grinder pump systems and others.

Since the early 1970s, pressure sewer systems have been an effective method to move residential wastewater through the small diameter pipes of a wastewater collection system where other methods are less economical and less feasible. "Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers" is an essential presentation for understanding and using pressure sewer technology.

By taking advantage of the experience that these systems offer, a new system can be planned, which will provide excellent performance, high reliability and reasonable O&M costs.

"Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers" describes the keys to understanding the differences between conventional gravity sewer systems and pressure sewer systems: the piping network and the reduction of solids size in the wastewater. This presentation describes how the application of grinder pumps and pressure sewer systems is a cost-effective, permanent answer to allow more sites, existing and new, to have access to a public sewer system.
