Packaged Pumping Stations are essentially used to transfer sewage from one site to another. They can move sewage in most directions and have the power to transfer sewage uphill if required. One reason people choose a private pumping station (PPS) is when they can not connect to the main sewage line.
They’re suitable for use in a range of waste water and sewage applications, in situations where removal is not possible under gravity, such as in single dwellings, hotels, nursing homes, schools, hospitals, and housing developments.
What is a package pumping station?
A package pump station is a complete unit comprising of a chamber, pumps, pipework, valves, control panel and level control pre-assembled as a complete unit. A package pumping station is primarily used in the private sector and commonly isn’t normally adopted by the water authority. Package pumping stations come in varying sizes to suit the requirements of the flow and application.
How much space will a pumping station take?
Our package pumping stations have the following dimensions:
- Mercury – 1.2m deep x 1m diameter
- Venus – 2.3m deep x 1m diameter
- Saturn – 2m – 4.5m deep x 1.5m diameter
- Jupiter – 2.5m – 4.5m deep x 2.1m diameter
An adoptable pumping station requires a complete segregated compound area with access for future maintenance vehicles and larger plant lifting equipment. The size of the compound can vary depending upon the size of the application and which authority the development falls under.
