Sample Pump Basin Selection Guide
These sample pump basin packages are used to pump effluent from a septic tank to a sewer collection line or dispersal area via an external pump basin. Specific applications include retrofits and pumping from a secondary treatment system to a dispersal area. The first column below shows an effluent pump basin package and its components. The other two columns give solids-handling and grinder variations. Refer to Pump Basins (PB) on page 31 for pump basin selection information.
Note: Bold items in the "Solids-handling" and "Grinder" columns indicate a variation from the standard ("Effluent") component.
