We asked the client to ensure the ground works undertaken before we get to site leave a chamber access size of 900x900mm in order to give adequate room for installation of the dual pumps.

As with all of our quality foul water pumping station installations, we included a weatherproof mild steel kiosk, complete with double doors, asloping roof, ply backboard, stainless steel hinges and locking facility. We also include a 24v externally-mounted flashing high-level alarm beacon on kiosk incase the pumping station blocks or fails to pump adequately. As well as the beacon and alarm, our pumping station also includes a remote alarm dial out facility with will alert via text message for pump trip, high-level alarm or mains failure up to four different mobile numbers. We gave the client a choice between a GSM alarm which communicates via a fixed phone line, or one which uses a mobile network.

Unlike many budget sewage pumping stations, we included professionally bound Operation & Maintenance manuals for the clients ensuring they had all the information they would need on the unit should they need it. We also advised the client on how to properly look after the unit to ensure trouble-free operation and advised on a servicing schedule to suit.
