Ever had dealings with Pump Stations? You must know about this

It's time to talk BENCHING! 📣

And this is a BIG ONE!! 💥

Everyone knows the most common failure with a pumping station is pump blockage. ⚠⚠

But did you know?

The most common reason for pumps blocking is due to poor wet well design❗️ ✏

Angled benching is designed to direct everything that enters the chamber towards the pump inlets 🌀

Without it, dead areas form allowing solids to build up. When a solids mass then breaks away and moves towards the pump, the pumps block 🛠️

It's quite simple but it causes the biggest problems.
