Reducing Emergency Sewer Repairs in Big Box Pump Lift Stations Caused by Non-Dispersible Debris
AQUALIS and JWC Environmental (JWCE) have teamed up to provide a solution for retailers that reduces lift station clogs caused by wipes, rags, clothing, rocks, wood, plastics and other non-dispersible debris. A growing number of major retailers are adopting Monster Industrial Manholes, from JWCE, equipped with high-powered dual-shafted grinders and proprietary cutter technology that shreds wipes, diapers and other debris into small pieces to keep lift pumps up and running – virtually eliminating the need for emergency repairs, and cutting municipality fees for
discharging pump-clogged trash into sewage lines.
Wastewater treatment plant operators have dealt with clogging problems at their plants and pump stations for decades, but the meteoric rise in the use of disposable wipes and other non-dispersible products has accelerated the problem to epidemic proportions.
Big Box Dilemma
This problem is in no way limited to municipal wastewater treatment facilities. The growing volume of non-dispersible solids is just as much a serious and growing issue for commercial operations, such as healthcare facilities, multi-family developments, high-traffic convenience stores, and big box retailers. Many of these facilities maintain on-site pump lift stations, which are the first to be impacted by this non-dispersible debris.
Servicing one of the world’s leading retailers, AQUALIS was tasked with finding alternative solutions to the non-dispersibles problem.
