Lift Stations : Submersible Wet Well Systems vs Wet/Dry Well Systems



What is the difference between a submersible wet well and wet/dry well system?


dry/wet well system

The two generic types of lift station designs are we and dry/wet well. The wet/dry well uses a wet well or pit to collect wastewater and a companion dry well which contains the pumps, controls, and related equipment.


The submersible wet well on the other hand uses one well as opposed to two, with a submersible solids-handling pump which was designed to operate under water with an opening submerged inlet. All system components are installed in or contiguous to the single wet well.


Both systems are comparable, but you would need to discuss with a professional to see which system would work for the area that it would be installed in.
