Abstract: Trenchless gravity sewer upgrade projects, whether through CIPP (cured in place pipe), pipe bursting, etc., tend to have one thing in common: the need for reliable pumping systems. Whether the source is overflow, collapse, construction, etc., gravity sewer projects typically require flow diversion. Once a gravity sewer line’s flow has been diverted, reliable pumping is essential throughout the remainder of the project so that sewer contractors can devote their attention to the sewer upgrade.
