Bypass and Backup Pumping

Lift Station Backup Pumping

Lift stations are an essential component of many municipal or industrial wastewater collection systems. In fact, most collection systems are not sustainable without lift stations.

To ensure uninterrupted flow of wastewater, many lift stations are equipped with Dri-Prime Backup Systems (DBS) as contingency plans for pump stations. The DBS provides independently-powered backup pumping for a variety of emergency situations, making it ideal for regions prone to hurricanes, heavy rains or intense snowmelt.
