Pump Station Options – Why You May Need One

Pump station options are vital when sewerage connections for a property are below the main drainage system in this area. In such circumstances, waste water must be pumped up to the main sewer connection. It’s not uncommon for pumping systems to be installed in single properties or in larger domestic or commercial developments. Every different type of installation requires an individual approach, as no two circumstances are ever the same. That’s why it’s important to select a pump station installation expert who really knows what they’re doing and is focused on offering drainage solutions addressing your individual requirements, rather than what is easiest for them.

Why Are Pumping Stations Effective Drainage Solutions?

Pump stations often need to be installed in dwellings and commercial or industrial builds to ensure that waste water can effectively reach the main sewer. They are vital when the property’s sewer connections lie below the main sewer, ensuring that waste can be expelled from the system and that it can continue running smoothly. Essentially, your sewage pumping station will pump through a rising pressurised pipe to the nearest water main. The size of this main will depend on your individual requirements. There is a danger with some private sewage pumping stations that the rising main will be too long and cause issues. For instance, if the bacteria in the waste water starts breaking down on its way through the mains pipe, then this can remove the oxygen within the waste and start producing acids. As this turns into septic waste, it can become an issue when it reaches the main sewerage treatment plant. For this reason, it’s vital that your new pump station is designed specifically for your property and its needs. It’s also important that you choose a professional and experienced pumping station installer with expertise in installing a variety of pumping station or septic tank installation options. Pump stations are used across different types of property and are therefore sized accordingly. Domestic pump stations will necessarily differ from those suitable for larger industrial developments or schools and restaurants. A pumping station is often part of a wider sewerage and drainage solution that specialists can install to make your water flow without issues.

Packaged Sewage Pumping Stations Come In Various Sizes

Many people, unless their needs are especially complex, will opt for packaged sewage pumping stations. These come in a range of sizes that will suit most requirements. For instance, if you’re adding an extension to your home or installing a new en suite, you may need a pumping system to allow that additional waste to reach the main sewer. Similarly, if you’re building a new single dwelling (or updating the pumping system already present in a single dwelling) then smaller options will be right for you. Small-scale housing developments of just a few properties, on the other hand, will require larger systems equipped to cope with increased waste water. As you go even higher up the scale, you’ll find a sewer pump stations package to suit your requirements, whether you’re developing a system for a school, a hotel or a restaurant. When you’re considering which pumping station company to choose, it’s important to remember that they’re installing a system that will service your property for years to come. Ideally, a pump station should be something that is installed and then runs perfectly with regular maintenance for a long time. A pumping station is only usually noticed when it goes wrong. Professional engineers know this and they don’t want to be the company who installed the pumping system that caused problems further down the line. They will therefore endeavour to get it right the first time. Companies like Environmental Drain Services Ltd stake their reputations on every job and don’t want to jeopardise that reputation in any way.
