Insights

The Airvac valve pit provides the interface between the vacuum collection system and the house. The top chamber of the valve pit houses the Airvac vacuum valve and the bottom chamber is a sewage sump into which the gravity lateral from the house connects. The two chambers are sealed from each other preventing maintenance personnel from being exposed to raw sewage.

Each valve pit can accommodate sewage from up to four homes, although the most common configuration is one valve pit serving two adjacent houses. No special plumbing fixtures are required by the homeowner.

Airvac has three styles of valve pits; a 1-piece pit, a 2 piece pit and a 2-piece cold weather pit. Pits are available in depths ranging from 5 ft to 10 ft. All Airvac valve pits are rotationally molded and are made entirely of polyethylene. Airvac valve pits include an anti-buoyancy collar and have an H-20 traffic load rating. In addition, the valve pit package include a special flexible PVC hose (Airvac Flexible Connector) to connect the outgoing 3” vacuum line from the valve pit to the vacuum main.

Once the contents of the sewage sump has been evacuated, atmospheric air is admitted through the vacuum valve to provide propulsion to the liquid. The Airvac 6” Air Terminal, connected to the valve pit, is commonly used for this purpose. As an option, a 4” goose-neck type air intake can be used on every house gravity lateral instead of the 6” Air Terminal.
