Elevator codes are a touchy subject.  Each state and municipality
may have a different requirement.  Take the State of Texas for
example; in the State of Texas, TDLR enforces the ASME A17.1
Elevator Code.  It states that the pump in the pit must provide a
pumping capacity of 50 GPM per elevator cab. ASME also states
that you must discharge all fluid out of the sump pit which means
that you can not shut the pump down when oil is sensed in the pit.  
That bringing us to TDLR, which states that the pump must run
automatically without any human intervention.

TDLR also states that once the pump discharge makes it past the
hoist way wall then it is up to the local municipality to determine
how that discharge is to be disposed of.  Some municipalities allow
you to send that discharge directly to the sanitary sewer.  Some
require an oil water separator or approved oil alarm system such as
our OIL DIVERSION SYSTEM.

No matter where your local municipality says your sump pump
discharge must be pumped to, we have a solution.  We can offer a
solution in any horsepower or power selection that you may require.

We strive to help you learn the code and the solution in the most
simple manner possible.
