Enhanced Franklin Electric FPS PowerSewer System Provides Added Flexibility In Service Friendly System


Franklin Electric Co., Inc. offers the enhanced FPS PowerSewer System as a more flexible, service friendly, and efficient system for residential and commercial applications. This low-pressure sewer system is available in 60-, 72-, 84-, and 96-inch basin sizes and pumps wastewater to a collection or treatment area, making it a proven alternative to gravity sewer systems and septic tanks. The basin’s internal C-Channel assembly releases from the top of the unit, simplifying accessibility to and maintenance of its components. The updated design of the new tank also provides for easy access and replacement of all other internal components. The float tree is spring loaded and easily removable, with a lift handle to simplify pump removal. In addition, the redesigned FPS PowerSewer System features an isolated pump support that can accommodate heavier pumps for expanded applications. This provides added installation flexibility through the compatibility with the entire line of Franklin Electric FPS 2 hp grinder pumps, including the new FPS IGPDS Dual Seal Grinder Pump Series, and any single-phase, three-phase, manual, or automatic version of Franklin Electric’s high head grinder pumps. Inclusion of the FPS high head grinder allows the updated FPS PowerSewer System to produce a maximum shut off head of 200 feet, with a maximum flow of 35 gpm.

The FPS PowerSewer System also includes many features to create installer peace of mind. Its increased wall thickness results in a more robust and durable basin. The drop inlet allows for easy pipe adjustments and feeds solids directly to the grinding plane. A unique anti-shear discharge is provided via a molded external pocket, protecting the discharge service line from shear forces generated by backfill and tank settling. Lastly, the PowerSewer continues to use the FPS designed anti-siphon check valve, eliminating clogs that can occur when pumping downhill.

The FPS PowerSewer System is shipped complete from the factory, further simplifying installation. The system can be installed almost anywhere a home can be built, regardless of topography or soil type. Low-pressure sewage systems can eliminate expensive lift stations and the deep trenching of gravity systems, plus they do not require the utilization of costly onsite drainage fields. The watertight collection system minimizes the chance of leaks and water intrusion, making it safer, cleaner, and healthier for the community. The FPS PowerSewer System from Franklin Electric is ideal for those applications where traditional gravity sewer systems are not always practical and sometimes impossible.

The FPS PowerSewer System is part of Franklin Electric’s Engineered Products portfolio. For more information, visit To view the PowerSewer System video,click here.
