More than two years ago, Jefferson Parish, LA, installed Flygt Experior pumps at their worst-performing lift stations — sites that were plagued by clogging, overflows, and daily maintenance requirements. One of the main culprits was nonwoven fabrics, aka "flushable" wipes, which have become a nationwide nuisance for wastewater utilities.
How did the new pumps perform? Hear the full story below:
Spoiler alert: There hasn't been a single clog since installation, according to Linda Daly, Director of Sewage for Jefferson Parish. Daly estimates maintenance savings of at least $20,000, as well 60 percent energy savings worth up to $6,000 more.
The trouble-free performance comes from features unique to Flygt Experior pumps, including a premium-efficiency motor and SmartRun variable-frequency drive (VFD) controls with self-cleaning functionality.
