Effluent Pump Tanks
WCP Effluent Pump Tanks or Chambers are designed to be used in many applications including:
-Septic systems to pump effluent from the septic tank to the septic bed
-Lift stations to pump sewage from a house up to a sewer main
-Farm drainage to collect and pump water up to a ditch
All pump chambers should be made accessible for service of installed components. The standard WCP configuration includes a plastic cast-in-place access riser in the tank lid, allowing for service access at any time of the year without the necessity of digging up your lawn.
All electrical connections should be made similarly accessible. Standard effluent tanks produce high levels of corrosive gases which will quickly attack any exposed wiring or connections located within the chamber or riser. It is therefore recommended that all electrical connections be made outside the tank inside a weather proof, vented enclosure mounted either above the tank ( see photo ) or on a nearby exterior wall. Doing so will allow easy access for troubleshooting and service of installed electrical components.
WARNING. Conduit installed directly from inside a pump tank to inside your house could result in gases from the pump tank eventually entering your house.
WCP also supply's an extensive line of installation accessories including effluent pumps, alarm panels, controllers, float switches, piping, valves and fittings.
