Waste Pit Pumping Package

Waste Pit Pumping Package with Gorman-Rupp Super T 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 Application Expert – Chris Chapman – worked with the consultants drawings and made pump selections accordingly. The request was for a duplex Gorman-Rupp package so Chris chose Gorman-Rupp Super T-Series Pumps with the Eradicator option installed. Pump maintenance and inspections can be achieved without the need to pull the pumps out of the wet well. Cost Savings is always a factor with our experts and with this application standard “off-the-shelf” motors can be used that are readily available – where most submersibles use proprietary motors that can be expensive and can have long lead times.

The Results

  • Reduced Service & Maintenance Costs
  • Cost Savings
