Pumps and motors come in a variety of designs and styles and are used in both water and wastewater systems. The knowledge to work and maintain these units takes time, specialized training, and hands-on experience. There are various sizes of pumps and motors in the utility system. We have pumps and motors that are sized to meet customer demand and ones designed to maintain the entire distribution system.
Wastewater system pumps are used to move wastewater from a lower point to a higher point. Sewer lines flows down hill and when it gets to a deep point it is time to move it to a higher point so that it can keep flowing as designed. Sometimes it can be as close as across the street, and sometimes it can be up to several city blocks away.
Water system pumps and motors are designed to maintain certain flows and pressures throughout the system. Throughout the day water usage will change due to the demand needed by the customers. With these changes pumps and motors will turn on and off so that pressures and flows will stay the same and the quality will remain at the highest level.
