As a land developer, you need to use every piece of land to its fullest. With ALL-TERRAIN SEWER® pressure sewer systems from E/One, you can sewer anywhere and save up to half the cost of a conventional gravity sewer — all with a light touch on the land.
Pressure Sewer Systems, Septic Tanks & Gravity Sewer Systems
Septic Tanks vs Central Sewer Systems
Septic tanks have been a common method of residential sanitary waste disposal, but they may fail over time, polluting ground and recreational water and creating serious safety problems. Many communities nationwide have banned septic tanks because they can fail and pollute groundwater.
Central sewer systems are a better choice for new home developments and are usually considered an attractive selling feature.
Gravity sewer systems may not be feasible — or even possible — for new construction projects: they can require large, deep trenches that make the project too expensive. Hilly land, rocky soil, or a high water table can add more complications. Pressure sewers can be installed in any terrain and need only small-diameter mains buried just below the frostline.
Residential Projects that use ALL-TERRAIN SEWER and E/One Grinder Pumps
Great Sky in Canton, Georgia, may not have been possible to develop with gravity sewer systems.
Mark Sperling, CEO of Whiteface Club & Resorts, discusses the builder-customer experience the company has had with E/One grinder pumps.
