Vacuum system installers prefer the Flovac PE pit because of its ease of installation, low cost and that it comes pre-assembled to site.
Operators prefer the Flovac PE pit as it restricts any contact with sewage, there are no odours and infiltration is eliminated.
Confined spaces are not an issue and dropping things in the pit (like mobile phones) no longer means that they disappear down the sewer line.
The Flovac PE pit is available in different sizes.
The standard pit is 1.9 metre (6 ft) deep pit which incorporates the Flovac Valve and all pipework.
Typically 4 houses are connected to the standard PE Pit.
The Emergency storage volume is 400 litres (100 gallons).
A larger capacity well is used for schools and other buildings.
For special cases, Flovac manufactures customized pits, according to the needs of each client.
