Technology Specialties – ProSTEP Effluent Pumping System

A STEP (Septic Tank Effluent Pump) system is a form of pressure sewer that has several advantages over traditional gravity collection systems:

ProStep Effluent Pumping System includes a BioTube® pump vault, splice box, risers, lids (and needed accessories), float switch assembly, effluent pump and control panel.

ProStep Effluent Pumping System produces high quality effluent which allows the collection system to be designed the same way as a water system. Small diameter PVC pipe is laid in shallow trenches. Infiltration problems are eliminated, and hence, treatment plants can be smaller; lift stations and manholes are not required.

ProStep Effluent Pumping System per - unit costs can be much lower, especially in areas with dispersed dwellings, hilly terrain, high water table or rock. The on-site costs can be deferred until occupancy.

ProStep Effluent Pumping System effluent quality (average TSS 29, BOD5 129) is much better than sewage, reducing the biological load.

ProStep Effluent Pumping System encourages responsible water use and disposal practices by the homeowner.

ProStep Effluent Pumping System maintenance and operating costs are the same as, or less than, conventional sewers.
