Archived Webinar: Evaluating and Deploying a Pressure Sewer System

Tune in to this exciting webinar session about one community's real-life sewer journey presented from the perspective of the engineer and the operator. Various sewer alternatives, including gravity, vacuum and pressure sewer will be explored. This program includes design, installation and O&M content, which will prove useful to anyone involved in the decision making and execution of a collection sewer program.

If you are planning a septic tank replacement project, this is a must-see event. In today's challenging economic environment, more municipalities and engineering firms are relying on the pressure sewer solution. Find out about the economic and environmental aspects of pressure sewer that can make or break a project. And learn about what helps ensure homeowner satisfaction before, during and after project completion.

Article: Replacement Parts — OEM Parts are Chosen for Long Life & High Efficiency

This article in the November 2012 issue of Pumps & Systems magazine caught our eyes. Although the author works in an industry completely different from E/One, the theme of the article still applies: non-OEM replacement parts are not the answer when a pump or system requires service.

Upon first inspection, non-OEM parts may look and feel the same as the OEM parts. But there is a reason that they may cost less — they could be made from differently materials, which in the end, will not save you money. The difference in material could mean that pump performance is reduced, meaning that other parts could wear out faster because the pump is working harder overall. Or those non-OEM parts just wear out faster, requiring service more often. How does that save money?

How can you be sure that you're getting E/One genuine parts for grinder pumps and alarm panels?
  • E/One has a network of authorized distributors. Visit our web site to find out who and where they are located. Many of our distributors also have their own authorized service centers. 
  • E/One's replacement parts are marked with the E/One logo. It's an easy way for you to tell the genuine parts from the imposters.
  • If in doubt, contact us. Is someone offering a great deal on overstock? There may be a reason why: they could be obsolete parts, or non-OEM parts. The seller is probably not an authorized distributor or service center, either. We can answer your questions: email us at or contact the Field Service Department at 518.346.6161.

Webinar: Sewering the Sustainable (Re)Development

Join us Thursday, March 14, at 2:00 ET for a new webinar.

The recognition and reduction of wasted land and resources in development design is key to creating a sustainable world.  

Rick Harrison of Rick Harrison Design Studio will discuss coved communities and how small-diameter pressure sewers enable curved street layouts inside of his new Prefurbia neighborhood.

Michael Mendelsohn of Mendelsohn Construction in Arizona will reveal how geo-technical site challenges can be profitably overcome with an environmentally sensitive sewering strategy.

New Video: Infiltration & Inflow Solutions

We have just released a new video, available on our YouTube channel:

This video explores the real cost of aging and failing gravity sewers -- not only the repairs that will be required, but the added cost of treatment. E/One low pressure sewer systems can virtually eliminate I & I, saving tens of thousands for communities.
