For decades, surface-mounted, diesel-driven trash pumps have been the staple of sewer bypass applications. Design features such as automatic priming, automatic controls, and indefinite dry running have brought simplicity and reliability to the temporary pumping market. These same characteristics lend themselves to permanent standby pumping solutions.
