Your Water Trailers Options and Suggestions

Wastecorp is pleased to announce our water trailer pump products. Water trailers, (also referred to as  “water buffalo” or “water wagon”) provide fresh water distribution using a high pressure trash pump or diaphragm pump.  These water distribution systems are used to control dust on construction sites, cement cutting water needs, landscaping, paving companies, special venue water services and military water distribution needs. Water trailer also are available with components for NSF compliant drinking water applications used for special events like marathons and festivals, disaster relief and humanitarian assistance.

Water Trailer Tank Sizes

Wastecorp water trailers are available in sizes ranging from 150-5000 gallons directly from Wastecorp or qualified dealers in the USA or Canada. The best part is, your water trailer is manufactured by Wastecorp Pumps with hosing, check plate galvanized deck material and frame, so you’re getting a professional system by a professional ISO 9001 certified water trailer manufacturer.


Water Trailer Fill Options

Wastecorp water trailers can be filled by municipal fire hydrant, fresh water ponds or garden hose

Landfill Leachate Pumps

Leachate Pump

Pumping landfill leachate, wastewater containing solids and other debris is a challenging task that requires high performance pump systems to hold up to day-to-day heavy duty pumping tasks. There are added variables like solids, methane gas and potential site risks that must be taken into account when planning for a landfill wastewater and leachate pumping system.

Dry Prime Pumps For Water Authorities

Dry Prime Pumps for Water Authorities and Cities.

Dry Prime Pumps for Water Authorities and Cities. Water Authorities typically have a need for high flow rate, high suction and discharge pumps for their applications. Dry prime pumps are one of the most popular products for water authorities because of the multitude of situations involved on any given day. For example, heavy rainfall, storms, hurricanes, polar vortexes and more can pop up at a moment’s notice. This often leads to the need to pump millions of gallons of water from one area to another quickly and productively.

Daily use applications such as pumping out storm sewers, lagoons, flooded roadways, flooded basements and more are issues facing public utilities personnel on a daily basis. Operators expect dry prime pumps to connect quickly to a vehicle and start pumping quickly.

This was just the case for the City of Detroit Water and Sewerage Department and the Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA). The city has been on a multi year effort to upgrade infrastructure and equipment in the City of Detroit and surrounding communities. The effort has been paying off as the city and surrounding communities continue to improve and evolve daily.

Wastecorp Trash Flow TFV Series dry prime pumps were specified by the city and GLWA to pump out flooded areas during storms, manhole pumping and dewatering services in and around the City of Detroit.

Trash Flow model TFV-4M dry prime pumps with Tier 4 Final CAT diesel engines were specified to pump up to 1700 Gallons per minute (GPM) and up to 150’ of head. Dry prime pumps differ from trash pumps in that the operator can start out pumping without fluid in the casing. This is helpful to begin pumping immediately without worrying about burning out mechanical seals

The model you see here includes a DOT compliant trailer system with electric brakes, 80 gallon diesel fuel dank, LED trailer lighting system and optional articulating LED flood lights for emergency pumping overnight. The City also required an optional spare tire mounted on the trailer itself. The CAT diesel engine and Murphy control panel also includes an automatic engine shutdown system for low oil pressure or high engine temperature.

Wastecorp also provided on-site dry prime pump training for the City’s operators in a real life pumping scenario so we could simulate how to use the pump quickly. The Wastecorp factory technician demonstrated the use of the pump and identified the main lubrication areas, connecting and storing hoses and towing the pump.

When selecting a dry prime pump for your application ensure that the manufacturer has a proven track record servicing applications and customers both big AND small. Wastecorp is one of these types of manufacturers. For dry prime pump information and specification assistance contact us at 1-888-829-2783 or email read more

Low Shear Pumps and What It Means

Low shear pump for municipal and industrial pumping.

One of the topics that we often review at Wastecorp is customers requesting low shear pumps that don’t completely destroy the fluid or solids being pumped. With a low shear pump the fluid is pumped into a valve chamber or clack chamber and then transferred out with the use of check valves. Derek K. from Colombus, OH provides an example of a low shear pump application:

“I am looking for a pump that can do 200 GPM and when it is transferring the water it won’t sheer the water in the process. It will need to discharge 20′. We prefer it to be an electrical pump and if we have to use more than one pump to accomplish the flow we are looking for
that will work as well. looking forward to your response.”
Derek L. Columbus, OH

Derek there are a variety of low shear pumps available but a good example of one is the Mud Sucker Diaphragm pump. The big change with this type of low shear pump is that it is available in two different flapper configurations: Standard flapper and advanced flapper.

Standard Flapper Low Shear Pump
The standard flapper low shear pump uses a traditional flapper style to transfer moderate amounts of shear sensitive media.

As you can see from the caption below, the fluid being pumped enters into the pump body. With the Mud Sucker Series of low shear pumps, solids and fluid travel along a contoured velocity channel and has minimal contact with the mechanical features of the pump. This allows the fluid being pumped to be discharged without destroying the material.

Standard low shear pumps are available in single and double diaphragm configurations. You can also select from electric, explosion proof, gas or diesel engine, hydraulic or air operated low shear pumps.

Advanced Low Shear Pumps

Mud Sucker advanced low shear pumps are designed for higher solids handling requirements with a wider flapper opening in the suction and discharge. With an advanced low shear pump the operator can transfer up to 2¼” solids. The other advantage of this low shear pump series is that the operator can access the flapper check valves in seconds to inspect or replace worn components. There is also a standard emergency pressure relief valve so there is a reduced chance of a blockage or closed valve in the line causing pump damage.

Many industrial facilities have standardized their pump operations to include Mud Sucker low shear pumps for quick maintenance low repair parts cost and excellent return on investment. Mud Sucker advanced low shear pumps are available in single diaphragm and double diaphragm configurations.

Upstate New York Municipal WWTP Upgrades Sewage Pump

New municipal sewage pump

Winter in northern climates brings a host of challenges for municipal sewage pumping. With heavy rain and snowfall, America sewage treatment plants must pump through a cycle of runoff and grit in addition to pumping raw activated sludge from December through April every year. Only the toughest sludge pumps can provide a long life cycle and reduced component wear through these design conditions.


This was just the case for an Oneida County New York wastewater treatment facility. The decades old wastewater treatment facility recently underwent a massive upgrade to improve their pumping operations with new sludge pumping equipment and control panels to manage a growing community and the harsh winter weather.

Working with the end users and local contractors, Wastecorp designed, manufactured and installed a next generation Sludge Master PE 1141 dual ball valve plunger pump. The facility selected a guided stuffing box assembly to help reduce wear on the plunger and pump packing. The dual ball valve configuration helps to manage higher than average solids concentrations of above 10%. The PE-1141 comes equipped with graphite flax packing and a u-cup ring to improve leak reduction and sludge pumping performance.

The suction and discharge gauges provide on demand pump pressure information to help detect a blockage or closed valve in the system. This Sludge Master PE Series replaced an aging Carter Plunger Pump and the installation was achieved with few modifications to the piping arrangement making the Sludge Master a cost effective replacement.


The facility also installed a state-of-the art variable frequency drive system to optimize pump performance and save on energy costs.
