Goulds Water Technology, a Xylem brand, launched its GEP Series cast iron effluent pump, ideally suited to residential greywater and septic applications. The new pump features a robust cast iron housing that provides maximum heat dissipation and a premium mechanical seal design for protection against sand and abrasive materials found in modern wastewater streams.
The vortex impeller can handle solids up to 3/4 inches in size. Additionally, the mechanical switch coupled with solid float ensures dependable operation; the engineered motor is designed for peak hydraulic performance without overloading. The pump comes with a built-in vent hole allowing for easier pump installation and prevents air binding from occurring. The GEP Series is available in automatic or manual, 0.5 horse power and single-phase pump with a 1.5 inch discharge, along with corrosion-resistant hardware for lifetime use.
