A Sewage Pumping Station is an additional tank that can be connected to your wastewater treatment plant for the use of pumping fluids from one place to another where a gravity tank cannot be used.
Pump stations are suitable for water and wastewater treatment, effluent and sewage discharge applications in all domestic, commercial and industrial sites.
How do Pumping Stations Work?
Pumping chambers contain a chamber, pump, pump controls, float and / or an alarm, based on individual requirements. Multiple and back-up pumps are also available. The pump process is controlled with the use of control float which are set to turn on and off at predefined levels for absorbing a specific volume of effluent per dose. Wyre Drainage supply pump stations that are designed to meet building regulations, including Document H1 (“Foul Drainage”). This stipulates that:
“Where foul drainage from a dwelling or building is to be pumped, the effluent receiving chamber should be sized to contain 24 hours inflow to allow for disruptions due to power failures or breakdown. The minimum daily discharge of foul drainage should be taken as 150 litres per day per person for domestic use.”
Wyre Drainage are able to supply a range of pumping stations from manufacturers including amongst others ‘Marsh Industries’, ‘ClearWater and ‘Tricel’.
