Valve Vault Lift Station Overview
This style of lift station offers the simplicity of a submersible-style electric water pump in Camden County, MO, with the convenience of the controls and valves under a fiberglass reinforced plastic hood. The hood has the appearance of a normal utility box, which makes for a neighborhood-friendly installation.
While convenient and well-suited for new applications, system managers should be reminded of their susceptibility to cold. A heater should be installed under the fiberglass reinforced plastic hood to keep pipes from freezing while idle.
These stations are popular with developers and municipalities for stations with flows of up to 500GPM pumping rate or developments of approximately 500-600 houses. They’re also used for retrofitting an existing lift station where no valve vault exists, providing a simple, clean installation solution.
