High Head Effluent Pumps for Aerobic Systems
HIGH HEAD EFFLUENT SUBMERSIBLE PUMPS
High Head Effluent submersible pumps, also known as turbine pumps or deep water well pumps, are high pressure submersible pumps. They are primarily used in the septic system industry for spray irrigation or drip irrigation systems. These pumps are only designed to handle clear water or treated wastewater, so they are normally only installed behind an Aerobic Treatment System.
The High Head Effluent pumps that are used across the Aerobic Septic System industry are all fairly standard. Most you will see will be rated from 10 to 20 Gallons per minute and dimensionally will be very similar. At Septic Solutions we offer two different pumps in this category.
Franklin Electric / Little Giant Mid-Suction
The Frankin Electric / Little Giant WE Series High Head Effluent Submersible pumps are a middle suction unit. This means the pump intake is in the middle between the motor and the pump unit. The WE is offered in two variations: The WE20G05P4-21 is a 20 Gallon Per Minute unit commonly used for spray irrigation systems. The WE10G05P4-21 is a 10 Gallon Per Minute unit commonly used in underground drip irrigation applications.
Franklin Electric C1 and Sta-Rite Dominator
The Franklin Electric C1 Series and Sta-Rite Dominator High Head Effluent Submersible pumps are bottom suctions units. This means the intakes of these pumps are on the bottom below the pump and motor. These units are offered in 20 Gallon Per Minute only and are used for spray irrigation applications. These two models are completely interchangeable.
Pump Saver Filtration Screen
The Pump Saver Filtration Screen will fit almost every High Head Effluent Pump and is designed to protect the pump from clogging due to particles in the pump chamber. These style of submersible pumps are designed to handle clear water only, so this filter can significantly increase the life of your submersible pump.
