Centrifugal STEP Systems

Clarus Environmental’s Centrifugal STEP (Septic Tank Effluent Pump) System is designed for use in a septic tank as an alternative to a separate pump tank.  With a centrifugal effluent pump, float system, and effluent filter pack set in a polyethylene vault, it is ideal for use on new construction or repair sites when gravity flow is not an option. The centrifugal STEP system's filter pack consists of 528 linear feet of 1/16" filtration. The large surface area of the filter pack ensures adequate filtration for protection of downstream equipment and provides longer intervals between necessary servicing. The system is useful in low pressure pipe applications and can be equipped with a control panel for use in either demand dose or timed dose applications. Choose from several 115V centrifugal effluent pump models; 51, 53, 98, 142, 145, 151, 152 and 153. The system comes in a simplex configuration only.  Various heights are available.
