Join us for this must-see presentation that can finally solve a pernicious problem faced by many communities that use gravity collection sewers.
Basement flooding caused by sewer backups is downright damaging, extremely expensive, and quite common in towns and cities throughout the U.S. In addition to being a health hazard and a stressful event for building occupants, sewer backups can create tremendous resource burdens. These backups can be created by excessive groundwater or rainwater entering the sanitary sewer system as infiltration and inflow (I&I). In combined sewer systems, overflows often result from an insufficient capacity to properly convey the combined sanitary and wet-weather flow.
Find out how grinder pumps can now provide protection and security to homeowners and businesses by preventing sewer-related basement flooding. This proven technology provides a simple and straightforward solution to a stinky situation that has plagued system owners/operators and their constituents for decades.
Environment One Corp. (E/One) is a diversified, high-technology company located in Niskayuna, N.Y. Manufacturing, engineering, administration and marketing operations are managed from Niskayuna. Environment One also maintains regional sales offices in key cities in the United States.
Low-pressure, gravity-independent, contour-following sewage collection systems were pioneered by Environment One. E/One Sewer systems have proven to be an economical and effective method of sewering otherwise difficult land areas, such as flat, wet, rocky and hilly terrain.
At the heart of an E/One Sewer is the grinder pump, developed by Environment One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurize it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewer Systems serve over 1 million end-users daily.
E/One's Sewer Systems business is ISO 9001:2008 certified.
