Ensuring reliable and efficient wastewater removal in commercial buildings

Reduce installation complexity and increase backflow protection

Your challenge:

Reliable and efficient wastewater removal is crucial to securing a safe and hygienic environment for a building’s occupants. Pressurised sewage systems are an alternative to traditional gravitation systems that may present a range of challenges. These include:

  • High installation complexity due to many pipes located deep below basement slabs
  • An increased risk of backflow and flooding
  • The risk of leaky, inaccessible pipes located deep below ground or buildings

Our solution:

Grundfos pressurised wastewater solutions offer efficient wastewater removal and maximum backflow protection. They also reduce installation costs and complexity and are designed for fast and easy service. Our solutions include:

  • Pre-assembled lifting stations which are ready for installation, take up very little space, require less planning and don’t require any expensive excavation
  • All-in-one pre-fabricated pumping stations that simplify pit management by reducing construction costs and installation time.
