Question of the Week: Can a pump be installed in a two compartment IM-Series septic tank when a sealed pump chamber is not required?
Each week our technical services team fields hundreds of calls into our tech line. We’ve been getting this question quite often: Can a pump be installed in a two compartment IM-Series septic tank when a sealed pump chamber is not required?
The Aquaworx Intelligent Pump Control box panel provides an innovative approach to pump control. Designed specifically for the onsite industry, the IPC Panel leverages simple pressure transducer technology for the enhancement of pump system performance and ease of installation. Relying on an embedded microprocessor in the pump controller and a floatless pressure transducer in the pump chamber, the IPC Panel monitors liquid levels, controls pumping time intervals, and logs events in real-time.
Here are some of the common areas of the panel that our technical services team troubleshoots with customers.
