What is a pumping station?

Pumping stations move wastewater from one location to another when gravity can’t do the job. A pumping station is the ideal solution for low-lying properties that require connection to mains drainage, they are installed to take care of all water, sewage and effluent flowing from the property and pump them in to a nearby sewer network.

How often should a pumping station be serviced?

Domestic pumping stations require a minimum of one service and maintenance visit a year. However, higher usage pumping stations, for example within commercial and industrial sectors, require more frequent servicing and maintenance arrangements.

What does a servicing and maintenance visit include?

Regular or routine servicing and maintenance visits from our engineers will include the following (subject to your servicing plan and type of application):

• Check pump(s) for any debris or damage – unblocking where required

• Remove and clean level control floats / ultrasonic head

• Check operation of Non Return Valve(s)

• Check condition of pipework and internals for deficiencies or faults

• Check condition of the control panel and carryout any necessary testing

• Check and test alarm

• Comprehensive report following the visit to keep clients fully informed of general condition of the system and any further areas that may require attention
