How does it work?
It lists the pumps and lift stations to fill in The app has an area for comments. Using a Smart device the data is entered and submitted and can be referenced at any time. This app can be a real time saver for companies that inspect lift stations.
The maintenance program contains a schedule that ensures the entire collection system is inspected every certain amount of years. Inspection of the collection system may include smoke testing, dyed water injection, and sewer camera inspections of the sewer lines, as well as inspections of manholes and lift stations. This is part of a maintenance program that repairs, and provide preventive maintenance.
Sanitary sewer collection systems have a finite capacity to carry wastewater based on the size of the system components. The size of the components is based upon an analysis of the contributory flows into the system, plus a factor for growth. The analysis considers residential, commercial and industrial sources of flow plus a designed leakage rate for the system components. With time, the design basis for the system may change resulting in flows in excess of the designed flow. These factors can lead to sanitary sewer overflows (SSOs) of the sewer collection system as the increased flows exceed the ability of the collection system or lift stations to convey the wastewater to the wastewater treatment facility.
