    Additional Notes:


    STH has allowed 4 hours per pump/basin to perform start-up on the sump/sewage pumps. Please designate which system tag pump(s)/basin(s) you want started up:

    Can STH start all systems up on the same day?

    Are the panels wired?

    You will be contacted by an STH Service/Account Representative on how the startup request will be scheduled. STH startup team is not responsible for wiring up panels.


    STH requires 10 working days’ notice to schedule a start‐up. STH has allowed 3 hours on-site to perform start‐up on the pump system between 6:30am – 3:30pm, Monday – Friday.

Delays caused by other trades are your responsibility and do not absolve you of paying the delay and / or Cancellation Fee. Please make your Field Supervisor aware of these requirements and charges so they are ready when we arrive.
