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
