Product Focus: Seamless, One-Piece, Low Profile Septic Tanks

JMI has expanded its line of products to the pump and septic installer with the Norwesco line of low-profile tanks, pump chambers, and septic tank risers.

Norwesco polyethylene Low Profile Septic Tanks are manufactured using a proprietary state-of-the-art rotational molding process, ensuring uniform tank wall thickness and maximum strength.

The low-profile tanks also provide several advantages when compared to septic tanks made of traditional materials. Their lighter weight makes them easier to transport and install, and the combination of the low profile and ease of installation make the new tanks an ideal choice for all installation sites. They require no special backfill or filling with water during installation, saving significant time. Because the tanks are seamless, they is no assembly or leakage testing, saving more time and effort during installation.

Additionally, polyethylene is unaffected by soil chemicals and by the chemicals and gases present in sewage. This means the tanks will not rust, corrode, or require additional coatings as other tanks do.

Our stock tank sizes range from 500 gallons with a single compartment and 750 to 1,500 gallons with single or double compartments. Norwesco tanks, which are available up to 10,000 gallons, are suitable for use as a septic or pump tank and may also be used for non-potable water.

Norwesco also offers low-profile cistern tanks for instances when drinking water must be hauled in or if a well does not meet consumption needs. Manufactured using resins that meet FDA specifications to ensure safe storage of potable water, where applicable, the cisterns have been certified under ANSI/NSF Standard 61.

Pump Chambers and Risers

Norwesco offers a full line of polyethylene plastic pump chambers (tanks), risers, and lids.

Pump chambers are required when gravity prevents the wastewater from being pumped due to the site having a higher-water level. The pump chamber will distribute effluent wastewater and sewage to the main sewage system or the septic tank system.

Norwesco spherical pump tanks are designed to be used as a holding tank or pump tank with a capacity range of 200-525 gallons and are structurally sound in the ground when empty. These tanks are furnished with manhole covers and include a molded-in elevated pump stand on the bottom of the tank.

Manhole extensions and lid-riser combinations are available to bring tank access to grade and to meet code specifications. Because they are polyethylene, they are strong, durable, lightweight, and easy to handle. The riser connects to the septic tank and the pump-out opening or access port. The riser reduces labor time as all that is required is to run a pump hose into it to access the tank. That means no more digging up the ground and having to rebury the tank.
