CleanBlu Lift Station Treatment system

It is estimated that in excess of 2-million wastewater lift stations exist in the US. These lift stations are facilities designed to move wastewater from lower to higher elevation through pipes. They are a critical part of the overall water and wastewater pumping systems and bring the waste discharged from residential and commercial sources into the sewer system to the treatment plant. Lift stations are rarely thought of until one stops working properly and a spill or backup occurs. As an example, in the city of Seattle, Washington it's estimated that 544,000 gallons of grease slip down the city's drains each month with most of it coming from dirty dishes and food waste. As a result lift stations and sewers are constantly overworked and clogged with FOG and in the last five years, grease-clogged pipes caused about one-third of Seattle's sewer backups.As a solution to this expensive and time-consuming nationwide problem CleanBlu® has further developed its CleanBluGRS™ technology to provide a retrofit onsite system for wastewater lift stations. CleanBluGRS™ will diminish FOG build-up, which prevents the failure of pumps and other expensive parts in the wet-well and alleviates the need for weekly routine preventative maintenance visits. CleanBluGRS™ will further eliminate production of greenhouse gases, which cause foul odor and can be toxic and/or explosive and are therefore potentially hazardous to maintenance personnel. Chemicals currently used for odor control are no longer needed preventing potentially damaging affects on downstream treatment processes.
