The purpose of this white paper is to contribute to a better understanding of how
Life Cycle Cost calculations can support the design and selection of more cost-effective
wastewater pumping systems. This paper will describe all areas of the general LCC
equation and focus in depth on the areas of highest importance for wastewater pumping
systems. A total LCC analysis covers all areas of the pump system’s lifetime, but for many
projects some parts of the equation are more relevant than others. The parts of the
equation that matter the most will depend on the application, geographic location, labor
costs and energy costs – factors that can vary significantly between markets.
