Minimize Your Footprint and Maintenance Headaches

Trench type wet wells have been found to be suitable for various design parameters. Wet pit and dry pit/wet pit with vertical turbine solidshandling (VTSH), submersible and/or non-clog centrifugal pumps are compatible with trench type wet wells. It can also be applied to potable water, activated sludge, and raw wastewater operations. Potential problems could arise due to its minimal storage capacity, increased depth, and clogging issues without the use of pumps. However, these wells are exceptional in creating a superb hydraulic environment for pump intakes, minimizing footprint size and floor area (which in turn reduces sludge accumulation), and reducing maintenance costs.
