Adoptable Pumping Stations

Adoptable Pumping Stations - Stages from concept to adoption

What are the stages from concept to adoption?

1. Equipment Manufacture 

Once design approval has been obtained, the final manufacturing stage will commence for the pumps, control system, pipework, valves and ancillary equipment – a bespoke arrangement to your site’s specific requirements.

Lead times are kept to a minimum and due to the in-house manufacture of most equipment and our large stock-holding there is no need for external resources

2. Installation

All installation work is carried out by our own highly trained and skilled installation teams who have the necessary combined electrical /mechanical skills to install pumping stations. A full installation report is left with the developers’ site representative detailing any items which need attention related to the civil work or the M&E installation prior to commissioning.

3. Commissioning

Our commissioning engineers will undertake a full check of the installation, ensuring that the installation is safe and meets all of the required standards. A full installation report will be given and a certificate of electrical completion is also issued once all equipment has been commissioned.

4. Maintenance Period

The mechanical and electrical equipment provided in our pumping systems are offered with a 12-month warranty as a standard against any defective parts/faults, unfortunately, this does not include for blockages, misuse or vandalism. Extended warranties can be offered on request.

In addition, our Service Department will follow up our commissioning visit with an offer of a maintenance contract whereby you will be able to have peace of mind that your installation will be regularly inspected and maintained thus reducing the risk of un-necessary expensive breakdowns. Service visits can be tailored to meet your needs and can be adjusted as necessary

5. Adoption

We are familiar with the requirements of all Utility Companies which enables us to provide the correct equipment to meet the needs of your particular scheme.

T-T will control the Adoption process from concept through to Adoption on your behalf to ensure a smooth handover to the Utility Company incorporating all documentation from a design package to operating and maintenance manuals. Pre-handover inspections are a standard feature of our service liaising with the Adoptions Engineers to ensure a smooth, uninterrupted handover.


Water Authorities

In developing our adoptable pumping stations, we worked closely with some of the UK’s leading commercial and housing development companies to design a pumping solution that’s both reliable and cost-effective.

The aim was to reduce the overall build costs on housing developments without compromising on efficiency, durability, and reliability. With our adoptable pumping stations, we’ve developed a solution that ticks all of these boxes, and more.

What is Sewers for Adoption?

The basis of Sewers for Adoption is to ensure that the developer builds to a required standard and quality. To achieve ‘Adoption’ of a pumping station the specification, build and installation of the system would have to be compliant with Local Water Company specifications. Details of these specifications are found in the ‘Sewers for Adoption’ guidelines, published by WRc Plc, which is the standard set for the design and construction of sewers within the UK. To find out more, visit our Sewers For Adoption page.
