Southern Pump Services were asked to design and install a suitable pumpstation solution to cope with sewage and foul water from approximately half a 4-storey council office block (approx 700-1200 people). The front half of the building was served via a conventional gravity system. The rear half and basement facilities had no option but a packaged pumped system.

The existing system was a drastically undersized with an Polytank twin pump unit located in the corner of the existing lower car park area. The station had suffered numerous failures due to the frequency of stop / starts.
Quality and reliability of the new station was parament in this instance. Southern Pump Services offered the following Dry Well Pumping Station. Equipment had to be man handled from lower car park ramp approximately 30 metres to other area of car park.
The existing station had to be kept running whilst new station works were carried out. Final changeover was carried out at a weekend while building was unoccupied.
