Anyone traveling on lakes and oceans with sailboats and motorboats knows and values the beauty of nature. This aquatic leisure activity is increasingly popular, creating demand for hygienic and simple wastewater disposal systems. This is not just because of the increasingly strict requirements for harbors with berths for yachts and boats when it comes to disposing of fecal matter and wastewater; the skippers’ environmental awareness is also on the rise. Instead of simply emptying wastewater tanks into the water, disposal stations that are professional yet can also be operated by anybody are an important criterion for demanding boat owners when choosing a harbor.
Depending on the location, harbor size, and number of berths, there are several questions for harbor operators: What does the capacity of a disposal station need to be? Is a stationary pump sufficient, or do I need a mobile option? And who is going to pay for this service?
Customer-oriented high-performance models like the PierPump by Vogelsang are easy to operate and, on request, also allow bilge water or black water to be pumped directly into the sewage system. The integrated rotary lobe pump means that the PierPump is not susceptible to foreign matter, so that the vacuum extraction process does not come to halt if the wastewater contains foreign matter. Wastewater tanks are vacuum extracted in a very short time, and the voyage can continue.
