All About Our Sewage Pumping Systems

Here at ASAP Septic Tanks, we offer a number of sewage treatment solutions for both commercial and domestic environments. Today we’re going to focus on our sewage pumping systems, so read on to find out more.

What is a Sewage Pumping System?

A sewage pumping station encompasses a system of pumps and equipment for transporting fluids from one place to another. Within sewage systems, they are usually designed to handle raw sewage, which is fed through underground pipelines and stored in a pit, known as a wet well. When the level of sewage reaches a set point, the pumps are able to lift the sewage and transport it elsewhere.

Where are Sewage Pumping Systems Used?

Such sewage systems and pumping stations are used in both commercial and domestic settings, as well as schools and various types of businesses. Everyone has to deal with waste in some way. They are usually required if built below the level of the main sewage system. A sewage pumping system enables you to deal with your sewage wherever the property or premises is located. These sewage pumping systems are used in line with sewage treatment systems as a whole, septic tanks, and rainwater harvesting systems. For domestic dwellings  a pump station can be fitted to the nearest mains sewer available and must be measured by the amount of bedrooms in the property , it must be a twin pump system with alarm and high level failure. For example, the smallest pump station available for a three bed property straight to a mains outlet with 24hr storage capability should be 1250ltrs, then a 4-5 bed property is 1600ltrs.

Sewage Pumping Systems at ASAP Septic Tanks

At ASAP Septic Tanks, we offer a bespoke service for sewage pumping systems, considering the specific needs of your project. We use the information you provide to take into account how far away you require the liquid to be pumped to, the height or the lift that you will need the lift to reach in order to transport the sewage waste, and how many people the pump provides service for approximately. An effluent pump is used in sanitary sump drainage applications and pumps grey water, and only limited amounts of solids measuring half an inch to three quarters of an inch. These pumps are often used in septic or mound systems.

Types of Pump

We will also consider whether you need a solid lift pump, a grinder pump, or just a water or effluent pump. A solid lift pump is designed to deal with solids, breaking them down and making them easier to manage. A grinder pump is a device used for wastewater, whereby the pump grinds the waste into a fine slurry, which can then be pumped away (there are also two kinds of grinder pumps: semi-positive displacement and centrifugal). Whichever type of pump you need, each system can also be fitted with alarms depending on your needs. We offer an intelligent design procedure, which enables us to provide a fast and simple installation, which leaves you with a sewage pumping system that needs very little maintenance.
