Sewage Pump Size Calculator

Introduction

The Sewage Pump Size Calculator is a valuable tool for individuals and professionals involved in sewage system planning. This calculator helps you identify the optimal pump size based on the specific requirements of your sewage system, ensuring efficient and effective operation.

Formula

To calculate the required pump size, the Sewage Pump Size Calculator uses the formula: Required Pump Size = Total Flow / Pump Cycle Time. This formula ensures that the pump has the capacity to handle the sewage flow efficiently.

How to Use

1. Total Flow (Gallons per Minute): Enter the total flow of sewage in gallons per minute that your system needs to handle.
2. Pump Cycle Time (Minutes): Enter the pump cycle time, which represents the duration of each pumping cycle.
3. Click the “Calculate” button to obtain the required pump size in gallons per minute.

Example

For instance, if your sewage system handles a total flow of 120 gallons per minute and the pump cycle time is 10 minutes, input these values into the calculator. The result will provide the required pump size to efficiently handle the sewage flow.
