New Webinar: Grinder Pumps for Basement Flood Prevention

Join E/One Sewer Systems and Water & Wastes Digest on Wednesday, September 24, at 2:00 pm ET for a new webinar.

Basement flooding caused by sewer backups is downright damaging, extremely expensive, and quite common in towns and cities throughout the U.S. In addition to being a health hazard and a stressful event for building occupants, sewer backups can create tremendous resource burdens. These backups can be created by excessive groundwater or rainwater entering the sanitary sewer system as infiltration and inflow (I&I). In combined sewer systems, overflows often result from an insufficient capacity to properly convey the combined sanitary and wet-weather flow.

Find out how grinder pumps can now provide protection and security to homeowners and businesses by preventing sewer-related basement flooding. This proven technology provides a simple and straightforward solution to a stinky situation that has plagued system owners/operators and their constituents for decades.

  1. Why does one have combined sewer system. In Malaysia we have a sewer system solely for sewerage and a drain system for storm water. In theory no storm water should enter the sewer syatem.

  2. Combined sewer systems are no longer used in the United States and are primarily located in older areas of the country -- mostly the Northeast, Northwest, and Great Lakes areas. Sewer systems in these areas are often more than 100 years old. A "single pipe system" was thought to be cheaper to construct and because stormwater didn't have a perceived threat to public health, why separate it from wastewater?
