It’s 3 a.m. on a Saturday at the remote Rose Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Woodstock, Georgia and the influent water is rapidly rising, but the newly installed Grundfos submersible wastewater pumps wouldn’t remain running. In the past, the plant manager may have spent all night troubleshooting the problem with these critical influent pumps. In this case, installed with the Grundfos wastewater pumps was a full system control and monitoring system that allowed a Grundfos technician to use the Grundfos GO remote monitoring app to see that the alarm was registering a “current asymmetry” – a bad power feed imbalance that would destroy any pump. This quick response allowed the plant manager to alert his local power company to a faulty regulator at a nearby sub-station, providing a solution in just 20 minutes that allowed the plant to return to normal functioning levels.
