Rehabilitation Products Focus: Bypass Pumping


Gorman-Rupp engine-driven trash pumps are the perfect solution for sewage bypass operations, construction site dewatering, hydraulic fracturing and all your other tough pumping applications.

These priming assisted pumps feature a positive priming and sealing system that virtually eliminates leaks, reducing environmental concerns and allowing them to run dry indefinitely.

Thompson Pump

Successful projects that Thompson Pump installed, maintained and tore down included a sewer pump station bypass of almost eight months in duration and with 10 mgd flows in the Annapolis, MD, area. Specific challenges were a very small work area and the need to keep the road alongside the pump station open. In Riverdale, MD, a stream bypass project was five months long and up to 8,000 gpm, depending on rain events.

Rain for Rent

Rain for Rent offers the SiteMax line of portable trash pumps by PowerPrime Pumps. Capable of pumping up to 3,000 gallons per minute and 3-inch solids, these units feature standard sound attenuation, and are ideal for many pumping applications. The ultra-portable SiteMax is trailer mounted with side-by side suction and discharge, making it easy to maneuver through even the most difficult areas.


The re-imagined, re-designed and re-engineered Godwin (a Xylem brand) Dri-Prime pump, NC150S, marks a new era in dewatering. Featuring Field Smart Technology (FST), the first-in-industry telemetry and wireless technology, it provides remote monitoring and control of the pump in real-time, wherever it  is located, from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer. It also employs Xylem’s patented Flygt N-Technology, which ensures pump operation during peak performance, even in the most challenging wastewater applications.

BJM Pumps

BJM Pumps’ line of submersible dewatering products includes the LWA Series, an economical, tough unit designed to outlast rubber lined and cast iron pumps. The KB Series is a great solution for dewatering settling basins, retention ponds, wash sumps or any pump job with tough silt, sand or coal fine. In addition, the J Series is ideal for effluent wastewater pumping, JH Series is for high-head effluent wastewater pumping, and R series is for dewatering construction sites and mines or all-around use in industrial plants and utilities.
