Smith & Loveless Inc. Highlights the EVERLAST™ Series 4000 Pump Station 

Significantly Lowers O&M Costs, Increases Ease of Operation and Operator Safety Compared to Submersible Wastewater Pumps

LENEXA, Kan. – Smith & Loveless Inc. highlights the EVERLAST™ Series 4000 Pump Station, an above-ground wastewater pump station that continues the S&L tradition of high efficiency, long service life, operator ease and safety, and low operation and maintenance costs. The EV Series 4000 pump station comes as a complete, factory-built and tested system that is fast and simple to install in both new installations and replacements of submersible pumps. This state-of-the-art packaged pump station incorporates premium efficiency motors designed for wastewater, resulting in reduced energy consumption costs and a smaller carbon footprint. 

Unlike submersible pump stations, all mechanical equipment is safely located and easily accessible above ground and outside the wet well, eliminating confined space hazards during routine maintenance and operation. Moreover, the EV Series 4000 features a 2-piece split, rolling UV-coated fiberglass enclosure that provides easy 360-degree access to all components. 

The cost savings for maintenance and operation are proven and well-documented. For example, a Kansas municipality conducted a study of the repair and maintenance costs of 32 S&L above-ground pump stations compared to 21 submersible pump stations in the same sewerage network over a period of 12 years. The results showed that the S&L pump stations had nearly 56% lower operating expenses, resulting in maintenance and parts savings of $2,750 per station per year.

The EV Series 4000 pump station is equipped with S&L STAR ONE™ Non-Clog Pumps, which are centrifugal solids-handling pumps that last three to five times longer than a typical submersible pump. These pumps also offer higher efficiencies across the range of pumping conditions.

QUICKSMART™ PLC controls provide an intuitive touchscreen for simplified training and operation, with unparalleled system monitoring, troubleshooting and predictive maintenance capabilities. Optional RapidJack® check valves eliminate the need for time-consuming valve disassembly and interim piping realignment and are easily accessed by removing just four bolts. Another popular option is the DURO-LAST® 316/Lean Duplex Series 2100 Stainless Steel Baseplate which comes with a 25-year warranty, the highest level of protection available in the industry.
