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
