Suck it up, pressurise it and send it to the treatment plant. In theory, this should be a straightforward job for pumps at a lift station. However, as we all know, the curse of so-called ‘flushable’ products in our sewer systems is also proving that some so-called ‘non-clogging pumps’ are getting clogged. If you do not have a problematical lift station in your... [Read More]
