Low-pressure, gravity-independent, contour-following sewage collection systems were pioneered by Environment One. E/One Sewer® systems have proven to be an economical and effective method of sewering otherwise difficult land areas, such as flat, wet, rocky and hilly terrain.
At the heart of an E/One Sewer® is the grinder pump, developed by Environment One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurize it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewer Systems serve over 1 million end-users daily.

S.P Pumps & Tanks Ltd has many years of experience serving the South Vancouver Island area, but many people don’t know how their systems work. For properties that don’t have access to municipal sewage disposal, the alternative is an underground unit where bacteria take care of the bulk of the waste. The leftovers separate into three layers:
· Solids, which settle to the bottom into a layer known as sludge
· Grease and oil, which float to the top as scum
· Liquids, which discharge from the tank to filter through the soil and rejoin the water table
Maintenance to Keep Your System Working Properly
While your waste disposal network is out of sight beneath your backyard, proper maintenance is some of the most important septic information you should know. The biggest thing you can do as a property owner is vigilantly monitor the materials that enter your tank. Since the setup relies on bacteria to break things down, it’s vital that you limit the amount of antibacterial or antiseptic substances that exit your home. Failure to do so could create an inhospitable environment for these integral microscopic creatures. You should also have a professional come periodically to pump out the sludge layer and add bacteria back into the system.

Tankless Hot Water Heaters
it easy to go tankless
“We were tired of running out of hot water, high energy bills and the idea of constantly heating a big old water storage tank. That's why we asked our contractor to install a Navien Premium Efficiency (NPE) tankless water heater. We researched the Energy Star website and found Navien on top of the energy factor list. Now we get endless hot water when we need it and we’re not heating water when we don't.”
