Gorman-Rupp Super T Series and Eradicator System Reduces Service & Maintenance Costs in Waste Pit Pumping

Waste Pit Pumping Package with Gorman-Rupp Super T Series and Eradicator System

The Challenge

The Customer was expanding their facility and needed a new installation. The pumps needed to be "high & dry" (self-priming) for easy maintenance and allow for easy clean-out in case of any blockages. They needed to be able to handle occasional feathers and solids.


Our pump application expert worked with the consultant's drawings and made pump selections accordingly. The request was for a duplex Gorman-Rupp package, so our pump application expert chose Gorman-Rupp Super T-Series Pumps with the Eradicator option installed. Pump maintenance and inspections can be achieved without pulling the pumps out of the wet well. Cost Savings is always a factor with our experts. With this application, standard "off-the-shelf" motors can be readily available – where most submersibles use proprietary motors that can be expensive and have extended lead times.

  • Cost Savings
