Q: What does a Grundfos MULTILIFT protect against?
A: Backflow and basement flooding
Q: What makes the Grundfos MULTILIFT easy to install?
A: The system comes pre-assembled with a freely adjustable inlet and many other installer benefits
Q: When is it ideal to use a lifting station as a pressurised system for wastewater removal in commercial buildings?
A: When sanitary appliances are installed in the basement of an existing building, when space outside the building is limited or when excavation conditions are difficult.
Q: Why can it be a challenge to install a pumping pit outside a building when removing grey or black wastewater from below sewage level?
A: A pumping pit installation calls for longer planning and installation time, more excavation time and higher excavation costs, as well as a higher initial investment.
Q: Why is a lifting station an optimal solution for basement refurbishments?
A: A lifting station is flexible, easy to service, cost effective, provides protection against flooding and is odour free. It can also be connected to the existing drainage pipe easily.
