The Problem With Pumping Sewage & Wastewater
The most common issues are wastewater system pumps being clogged by flushable wipes, baby wipes, and feminine products.
Yes, flushables are the biggest problem driving most operators to our website. Clog reduction is the main request, leading maintenance engineers to install EDDY Pump sewage pumps.
We only deal with municipal and industrial clients. Try Home Depot for low-cost residential sewer pumps, that is not our target market, we focus on heavy-duty and industrial applications.
A Better Sewage Pump for your Wastewater System
EDDY Pump has a tested and multi-decade proven solution. The sewage systems of the US Navy have been using EDDY Pumps for many years. Read about the newest Ford Class using EDDY Pump HERE. Based on the EDDY Pump design which has a large and non-critical tolerance between the rotor and volute, it makes for the ideal sewage pump. The EDDY Pump can pass an object without any issue that is 1-inch smaller than the intake of the pump. Example, a 4-inch EDDY Sewage Pump can handle a 3-inch solid without clogging or having any issues.
Example, a 4-inch EDDY Sewage Pump can handle a 3-inch solid without clogging or having a negative effect on the pump. Many pumps start clogging at half the diameter of solids. Another advantage of this extreme tolerance is reduced wear and tear because fewer solids come in contact with the rotor.
Optional. A chopper upgrade can be fitted for use in sewage pumping applications. Most other pump applications the EDDY Pump works without comminutors, macerator or grinders because the tolerance is large enough to pass all material without any issues. But for large scale municipal use, we recommend cutter to break down flushable wipes and other non-organics.
Why use this? EDDY Pumps pass such large waste and non-organic material that clogs can happen downstream from our pump. For sewage applications, we recommend using a cutter to prevent clogs in your downstream applications. Call us to discuss.
Conclusion: Cost Reducing Sewage Pump
The EDDY Pump has been utilized by the US Navy for over 20 years on almost all classes of Navy ships for grit, waste transfer and sewage pumping. The reason is that this pump design saves the Navy tens of millions of dollars every year in corrective action, overhaul, and downtime.
