Power Posts & Plugger Boxes for Septic Systems

Power posts and plugger boxes provide convenience to connect all wiring required for a typical pumping station installation. JMI Pump Systems offers products from Alderon Industries and SJE Rhombus, which provide ease of installation and many safeguards.

Alderon’s Mini Power Post™ and Power Post™ monitoring system pump connection centers are used to make a professional and safe connection for power and float switch wiring to an on-site septic system.

Each Power Post™ model comes with a 42.5-inch post to install in the ground with the vented post cap, cable grips, and junction box all pre-installed to the post, which eliminates a 4" x 4" wood post and the exposed wires for a safe, clean, and quick installation.

Available in 120VAC or 240VAC models. The Power Post™ monitoring system has an integrated outdoor alarm equipped with LED indicators (various colors), buzzer, and test/silence pushbutton. The top of the enclosure changes color along with system function displayed text on the OLED screen for easy troubleshooting information. Menu keys are provided to program settings and view data such as…
