Sanitary Sewers


Municipalities across North America are replacing aging combined sewers with massive new systems that separate wastewater and stormwater, dramatically reducing wastewater treatment load and protecting the environment. These systems must be watertight to meet modern environmental specs and standards. And that’s where we enter the picture. Hamilton Kent’s watertight gaskets and connectors are designed to do just that. Our durable, flexible rubber connectors are a big leap forward from the mortar-based connections that add to construction time in the field and are prone to cracking and leaking.
