New webinar: Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers

An interesting webinar will take place next month entitled "Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers". It is facilitated by Walt Erndt, Environment One Corporation Assistant Chairman, Technical Committee (SWPA)

When: December 11, 2008 1 p.m. Eastern
Cost to Attendees: FREE

Here are more details on the webinar:

Presented by Pumps & Systems and the Submersible Wastewater Pump Association.

The 60-minute audio and visual presentation will include a 45-minute seminar and 15 minutes of live Q&A.

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.

Based on three Technical Resources published by SWPA (The Submersible Wastewater Pump Association): An Introduction to Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers (a PowerPoint Presentation) covering the basics of these products; Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers, a 50-page primer on these systems and the products that go into them; and the Association's Press Information Kit on Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers. In addition, SWPA is planning to present an in-depth Grinder Pumps in Pressure Sewers Training Seminar in the Spring of 2009.
