The Lifespan System
Available from Hamilton Kent
Watertight, Corrosion-proof Frame and Adjustment Risers
The very systems designed to manage our wastewater and stormwater have now become management challenges themselves. Aging collection systems are developing breaks and leaks. As a result, excess water and other materials that do not belong there get into the system. The added flow not only reduces sewage carrying capacity, but often force systems to handle volumes for which they were not designed.
With combined flows, the systems frequently fail and overflow, sending untreated sewage into basements, streets and public waterways.
Adding temporary storage or expanding treatment capacity does not solve the problem at the source, but they do add to operational costs, as well as increasing energy demands. In effect, the solution to our water management challenge becomes part of the solution to our global warming problem.
The Lifespan System® breaks the cycle. It is the only integrated system on the market that is specifically designed to eliminate inflows at the cover and chimney area. It is made of the same ultra high-performance rubber materials that have been used in transportation for more than 50 years. The rubber provides a watertight, naturally corrosion proof, and highly durable cover system, which has the added benefit of minimizing road noise since there is no rattling of covers.
