Stop Inflow: Consider These Time & Money Saving Tips
Our goal is to help stop inflow, and we’ve been focused on doing so for almost 40 years. We don’t plan to end our focus on stopping inflow any time soon. That’s what we manufacture the products that we do – to stop inflow for our customers, and to save them time and money. That’s also why we share inflow and infiltration tips.
If inflow, or infiltration, has you up at night worrying about the damage it may be causing, or the additional money being spent to treat the issue, consider these tips:
- Plan for, and make regular inspections and keep up with maintenance on manholes, sewer systems and in your wastewater treatment plants. Inspections and maintenance can help you identify inflow and infiltration problems early, and offer the opportunity to treat those issues.
- Seal manholes and replace leaky covers. This can help prevent inflow from entering the waste water network in your city.
- Inflow can occur in the telecommunications and power industries. When it does, it can cause vaults to fill with water, and can cause slowdowns for teams working in the underground structures.
- Look for extreme spikes in flow at your wastewater treatment plant, after or during, wet weather. This may be an indication that there is an inflow or infiltration problem.
- If pipes back-up and basements flood during a rain event in residential or business basements, you may have an inflow or infiltration problem.
- If you’re not looking for inflow and infiltration, you are likely spending more money to treat it, than it would cost to reduce or eliminate it.
Taking the time to identify potential inflow or infiltration issues, and fixing those problems, can help save money. If you have questions about inflow or infiltration, or are interested in learning more about our solutions for stopping inflow, contact us. We’re here, and ready to help.
