Statement of problem: Unreliable lift station pumping due to electrical or mechanical failures of primary pumps and/or backup systems (diesel generator, transfer switch, etc.)
Statement of solution: Utilize a surface mounted, automatic priming, solids handling, diesel driven pump to back up permanently installed lift station pumps
Benefits of solution: Complete pump and power system for emergencies and preventive maintenance (two benefits for the price of one)
Economics of solution: Cost comparison presented between purchase and installation of a diesel powered generator and transfer switch vs. a surface mounted, solids handling, diesel driven back up pump
