Choose a water or wastewater application below to browse our interactive application diagrams. Our diagrams will help you select the appropriate products for your specific application, and will help to provide a detailed perspective into the design and function of the various water and wastewater applications.

  1. Water - Booster Pump Station

    Water - Booster Pump Station

    Booster Pump Stations include pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another. They are used for a variety of infrastructure systems that many people take for granted, such as the supply of water to canals and the drainage of low-lying land. A booster station is used mainly for pumping water, versus a lift station which pumps sewage.

  2. Water - Elevated Tank

    Water - Elevated Tank

    Elevated Water Tanks are liquid storage containers usually designed for storing water for human consumption. Elevated Tanks provide for the storage of water for drinking, irrigation agriculture, fire suppression, agricultural farming and livestock, chemical manufacturing, food preparation and many other applications. By elevating the water tank, the increased elevation creates a distribution pressure at the tank outlet of 1 psi per 2.31 feet of elevation, thus a tank elevated to 70 feet creates about 30 psi of discharge pressure.

  3. Water - Ground Storage Tank

    Water - Ground Storage Tank

    Ground Storage Tanks are liquid storage containers usually designed for holding water. The term can be used for both reservoirs (artificial lakes and ponds), and for manufactured containers.

  4. Water - Hydropneumatic Station

    Water - Hydropneumatic Station

    A Hydropneumatic tank is generally constructed of steel and is cylindrical in shape with convex or concave ends. It is positioned with its axis either horizontally or vertically arranged with the water supply pump(s), an air source, valves and controls so that the upper portion of the tank contains an air cushion while the lower portion of the tank contains water in storage. The air cushion provides a means for maintaining the system pressure within acceptable limits to provide adequate service between pumping periods.

  5. Water - Meter Station

    Water - Meter Station

    A Meter is a device used to measure the volume of water usage. Water meters are used at each residential and commercial building in a public water supply system. Water meters can also be used at the water source, well, or throughout a water system to determine flow through that portion of the system. There are several types of water meters in common use. Selection is based on different flow measurement methods, the type of end user, the required flow rates, and accuracy requirements.

  6. Water - Well

    Water - Well

    Water wells are excavations or structures created in the ground ––by digging, driving, boring or drilling to access water in underground aquifers. The well water is drawn via an electric submersible pump or a mechanical pump (ie: from a water-pumping windmill). Although not essential, a storage tank with a pressure of 40-60 psi is usually added to the system (after the pump), so the pump does not need to operate constantly.

  7. Wastewater - Lift Station

    Wastewater - Lift Station

    Lift Stations include pumps and equipment for pumping fluids from one place to another. Lift stations are normally designed to handle raw sewage that is fed from underground gravity pipelines. Sewage is fed into and stored in an underground pit, commonly known as a wet well. When the sewage level rises to a predetermined point, a pump will be started to lift the sewage upward through a pressurized pipe system where the sewage is discharged into a gravity manhole. From here the cycle starts all over again until the sewage reaches its point of destination – usually a treatment plant.

  8. Wastewater - Manhole

    Wastewater - Manhole

    A manhole is an inspection chamber or shaft with a removable cover, through which a person may enter a sewer, drain, etc.
