What is a sump?

It is a low point (pit or vessel) that collects water drainage. It contains a pump to transfer the collected wastewater to another location.

A wastewater sump makes it easier for craft breweries to:

Collect wastewater samples.

Properly meter wastewater discharge to the sewer (critical to managing volume and loading).

Transfer wastewater to a balancing tank and/or to on-site treatment.
