Get the Wastewater Engineering Manual 1 – for small pumping stations

If you work with pumping stations for smaller wastewater transport systems using wastewater pumps with motors from 0.15 kW to 30 kW, this manual offers guidance for submersible and dry-pit installation and operation. The manual discusses pump sump design, the proper anchoring of pipe systems, and factors such as sound, noise, air entrainment, vorticity and vibration. 

For larger and more complex systems, please see the ‘Wastewater Engineering Manual 2’ (pumps with motors up to 520 kW).

Drainage, effluent and sewage applications 

In addition to traditional wastewater discharge systems, drainage, effluent and sewage applications are dealt with separately to ensure the right pump selection and installation.

Getting pump sump design right

For pump sump design, we discuss how correct layout with benches in the wet pits and requirements for concrete foundations in dry-pit installations optimise operations.
