Pump Tank

The pump tank acts as a holding tank for the wastewater also referred to as effluent until disposal can be completed. Depending on the method of disposal the pump tank will configured differently.  If the effluent disposal is subsurface then the pump tank will be configured to disperse the effluent evenly over a 24 hour period.  If the dispersal is on the surface commonly using spray heads then it will be either configured for “on demand” or nighttime dispersal.  Even though these two dispersal methods are very different the function of the pump tank remains the same.
