Houston Cement Co.

Small details can cause big problems.

Houston Cement Company, located in Pasadena, Texas is a leading manufacturer of cement and aggregates for the Oil and Gas Industry. One of their facilities was experiencing backflow problems with their plumbing system causing drainage issues and foul odors throughout the facility. The CSNA technician arrived on-site and upon evaluation observed the existing lift station and piping were full and completely backed up. Upon further inspection, he noted that the pump was not properly mounted and that there was no check valve installed to prevent backflow.
