Drip Systems

Geoflow Wasteflow
The Wasteflow subsurface drip system from Geoflow is a way to disperse secondary reclaimed wastewater for commercial, municipal, residential, industrial and agricultural applications. Because the effluent is spread underground, it is absorbed directly into the biologically active soil layer, eliminating surface contamination, ponding, runoff issues and foul odors. It is made for high biological load. The dripline is ½ inch in diameter and made to be buried directly into the soil. Each emitter has a tortuous flow path and, in some cases, a rubber diaphragm, to ensure the rate of flow between the emitter closest to the pump will be the same as the emitter furthest from the pump. Burying the line also makes the drip system an option for areas with regular freezing conditions. Geoshield lining inside the pipe walls is smooth to keep bacteria from sticking and growing inside the dripline. 800-828-3388;

Jet Inc. Drip Irrigation Headworks
The Drip Irrigation Headworks package from Jet Inc. is designed as a direct-mount device for an effluent pump tank to filter effluent, while controlling pressure to the dripfield. It is available for automatic or manual/continuous flush. These packages contain a 1/2 hp high-head effluent pump, float tree, 1.5-inch vortex screen filter and pre-installed pressure gauges to monitor pressure drop across the filter component and regulate pressure to the dripfield. The package mounts onto an existing 24-inch riser or is pre-installed in a 24-inch riser for easy access to the pump, float tree, integrated vortex filter and controls. The package is available as part of the complete Drip Disposal Field Package that includes integrated controls for the Jet J-1500 or J-1500CF Series Bat Media treatment system. An optional flowmeter package, disc filter and pressure relief valve are also available to meet site-specific and regulatory criteria. 800-321-6960;

Effluent Pumps

Crane Pumps & Systems Barnes RAZOR
The Barnes RAZOR grinder pump from Crane Pumps & Systems is a suitable 2 hp pump for light commercial and residential solids-handling applications. It is designed with axial cutting technology to efficiently reduce solids like flushable wipes, diapers and other nonbiodegradable items. Maintenance is easy and convenient with only a single tool needed for disassembly. The plug-and-play cord also provides easy servicing without requiring removal of epoxy in the conduit. Unlike nonclog pumps with large discharge sizes, its 1.25-inch discharge is suitable for preconfigured packaged systems and turnkey solutions. It is available in the Barnes EcoTRAN Pressure Sewer System, allowing superior waste grinding in tough terrain. It provides a practical and environmentally safe alternative to traditional gravity systems, according to the maker. The numerous configuration options available offer highly customizable solutions. 937-778-8947;

Liberty Pumps ProVore 
The ProVore grinder from Liberty Pumps is designed for use in applications where the addition of a bathroom or other fixtures below sewer lines requires pumping. It has the same V-Slice cutter technology used in the Omnivore Series. Powered by a 1 hp motor, this smaller grinder is designed to operate on a standard 115- or 230-volt circuit, requiring only a 20-amp breaker. No special wiring is needed. The pump comes with a 2-inch vertical-style discharge and a standard leg pattern matching the LE Series. This allows for an easy retrofit into existing systems, according to the maker. Compact factory-assembled systems are available in simplex and duplex versions: the ProVore 380 and ProVore 680. 800-543-2550;

Pump Control Panels

Alderon Industries VertiMAC Sump Advisor System VM-Series
The VertiMAC Sump Advisor System VM-Series from Alderon Industries is a float-operated pump switch system used in sump pump or limited space applications. A sensor is attached to the top of the pump switch, which eliminates the need to mount a separate alarm float switch. The sensor integrates high-level alarm and pump-run switches connected to an alarm panel. Water level rises activate the pump switch, and the pump continues to run until the float is deactivated to complete the pump cycle. The sensor sends a signal to the alarm panel, activating the green pump run or red high sump LED indicators. The alarm panel auxiliary contacts are used to connect to BAS systems. It is available in 120/240VAC bare lead (no plug) and 120VAC or 240VAC piggyback plug, 13-amp models. 218-483-3034;

Aquaworx by Infiltrator Intelligent Pump Control
The Intelligent Pump Control panel from Aquaworx by Infiltrator transforms pump system performance. The easy-to-install panel monitors liquid levels, controls pumping intervals, logs events in real time and calculates daily system flow utilizing a pressure transducer in the pump chamber and an embedded microprocessor in the pump controller. The Aquaworx Tapper handheld Wi-Fi programmer broadcasts a signal that allows the user to program the panel using any Wi-Fi-enabled device. Once connected, the user navigates to a website that has all control settings for the panel and provides the operator with a history of system function critical to troubleshooting and maintaining a pump-driven system. The Tapper is intended for use with multiple panels and includes a USB slot, allowing the user to capture and download system events and settings onto a removable USB memory device. 800-221-4436;

Orenco Systems 4-in-1 Controller
The 4-in-1 Controller from Orenco Systems supports numerous electrical configurations and dosing schedules within a single panel. Both simplex and duplex models are available and can be configured in the field for timed or demand dosing. While the control circuit operates on 120-volt power, the pump circuit is dual-rated for 120- or 240-volt power, meaning installers and service providers can reduce their panel inventories for new installations and repairs. It includes a programmable logic unit with multiple timing intervals for changing flow conditions and has a built-in elapsed-time meter and counter. It also displays float position and has a float error indicator. Each panel includes a reference chart to assist with troubleshooting during installation and testing as well as wiring diagrams. It is completely touch-safe. 877-257-8712;

SJE Rhombus Model 122
The Model 122 control panel from SJE Rhombus controls two 120/208/240-volt, single-phase pumps in water and sewage installations. This panel includes a duplex controller for pump control, alternation and alarm. It includes float status LEDs, a control/alarm power on/off switch with LED indicator, pump run LEDs, HOA switches, a pump lead lag selector switch and auxiliary contacts. It includes built-in lag pump delay time, pump failure detection and float out of sequence. In addition, there are four user-selectable field-programmable operations: alarm steady state or flashing; alarm auto reset or manual reset; pump failure notification; and optional seal failure alarm beacon notification or beacon plus horn activation. It is available in the new NEMA 4X enclosure, which is designed for easy installation and additional protection from the elements. It is UL/cUL listed. 888-342-5753;

SPI 50B019-120-240DD
The 50B019-120-240DD control panel from SPI is a duplex time-dosing panel for use in residential or commercial applications. It can be used with 120- or 240-volt power, and it accommodates two dosing pumps controlled by a repeat-cycle timer. It has a durable, weather-resistant, NEMA 4X polycarbonate enclosure with SST latches; large, easy-to-access terminal block; circuit breakers for the pumps and control circuits; a rugged, externally mounted, UV-resistant alarm light; audible alarm and run-mute-test switch with UV-resistant sealing boot; definite purpose motor contactors; alternating relay; and pump hand-off-auto switches. Compressor hookups are available. Wiring schematic and detailed connection diagrams are provided, as well as mounting feet for the enclosure. It is UL listed. 419-282-5933;
