Water that has been used in our homes, business or part of an industrial process creates waste water. The wastewater industry affects everyone in one way or another. From shower water, to car wash, to agricultural run off, wastewater is created and needs to be treated. Waste water pumps are used for processing the raw wastewater, primary sludge, effluent water, or by products of industrial manufacturing. These pumps are used to move solids, sludge, water, slurries, and grinding materials in the treatment process.
