Twenty-first-century wastewater system operations are being asked to overcome a myriad of challenges, with minimal resources and fewer people. As the global coronavirus crisis unfolds, maintaining critical water and wastewater operations has never been more important. Work orders are mounting to address critical issues like clogged pump stations, even as more utility staff members attempt to work from home or shelter in place.
To capture the dynamic problems happening upstream of pumps, the pumping systems must be proactive, intelligent, and communicative. This webinar will address how you can get the most from your wastewater equipment with new technologies and tips on how to optimize your system. We will discuss the pumping system as its own universe, from a perspective of a single source package that is pre-engineered, pre-assembled, turn-key system, designed to deliver important peace of mind to its owners.
In this Live webinar on April 29th at 11:00 am EST, attendees will learn:
- Submersible wastewater pump types and technologies
- Benefits of turn-key system vs. traditional approach
- Pump station management using pre-programmed control systems
- The benefits of predictive maintenance
- Remote monitoring solutions and more
