A drainage pump transports water, sewerage or liquids from one location to another. Drainage pumps typically use layflat hose and suction-delivery hose attached to the pump inlet and outlet to transport the water. Some variations have permanently installed pipework to move the liquid from one location to another. Drainage pumps can be used in many applications including domestic, industrial, agricultural, quarries, sewage treatment works and for general water extraction.
By pumping water away from the waterlogged area to speed up drainage of the area.
Drainage pump installation should be done by a suitably mechanically trained person, T-T Pumps has engineer teams that can install equipment if required.
Many drainage pumps have a strainer base due to a low tolerance for solids passing through the pump, the most important thing is to keep this clear to allow sufficient water into the pump for normal operation.
No pump is designed to handle tampons, and stopping them from entering the pump through educating the users of a system and or screening the sewage reaching the pump is best. This being said most sewage pumps are "free passage" types. This means that they allow solids through the pump into the pipework, so if the free passage if large enough it should pass a tampon.
Sewage pumps are pumps used for pumping sewage on to a further location, for example from a sewage pumping station (domestic sewage pumping station and commercial sewage pumping stations) into the sewers.
The best sewage pump is an reliable and energy efficient pump that is able to supply the required duty for an application.
Zenit create many great ranges of sewage pumps and T-T Pumps is the sole distributor for Zenit in the UK and Ireland, we have had many years success with these pumps in a great variety of sewage applications. The best sewage pump for any application is one suited to the requirements, at T-T Pumps we offer bespoke sizings from site details to give smooth and efficient pumping.
Sewage pumps are any pumps used for pumping sewage. Most commonly these are free-passage type pumps that allow some solids to pass through the pump and continue pumping.
Sewage pumps and sewage systems are pumps used for pumping sewage on to a further location, for example from a pumping station into the sewers.
Our sewage pumps commonly are 70dB at a 1m distance, although this depends on the offered pump.
A correctly sized sewage pump should run reliably if the system is not abused. At T-T Pumps we offer bespoke sizings of pumps to offer pumps suited to the application and we are the sole distributor for Zenit pumps in the UK and Ireland who have been producing reliable sewage pumps for many years.
The most commonly used sewage pumps are free passage types that allow solids to pass through the pump whilst using centrifugal force to move the sewage.
Normally an venturi attachment is fitted to a sewage pump to allow the pump to offer some aeration. T-T Pumps can offer bespoke sizing of sewage ejector pumps or aerators.
If a sewage pump is going to be used in a basement there will need to be some way to collect the sewage and contain the smell of the sewage such as the Trojan range from T-T Pumps, as these are above ground packaged pump stations. We also offer a range of below-ground basement pumps, these are our Pluto range.
There is no set price for sewage pumps as the cost will depend on the size of the pump which is determined by the duty required in an application and we can help with the bespoke sizing of pumps from site levels given by email, phone or by completing one of our enquiry forms.
The most commonly used submersible sewage pumps are free passage types that allow solids to pass through the pump whilst using centrifugal force to move the sewage.
There is no set period of time a sewage pump will last for, although a properly selected and maintained pump will often long outlast the manufacturer's warranty period. We can help with pump selections and servicing through our sales and service departments so please contact us by email or phone.
Yes, sewage pumps can be sized and selected to ensure the liquid is transerred at the appropriate distance and head for the application.
Yes, a submersible sewage pump can be used in a sump application. The typical difference between a sewage pump and sump pump is the solids handling. Typically a sewage pump is required to handle larger solid particles whereas a sump pump or drainage pump is used for pumping clear waters. Although all submersible pumps can be used in a sump, they just need to be sized correctly, with the correct starting equipment to fit in the size of the sump.
A sump pump, or drainage pump is typically designed to pump clear waters. A sewage pump is designed to have a higher solids handling, so as not to get blocked by the sewage. You would need to check the pump you are using has the correct solids handling for the liquid you are looking to pump.
A sewage pump transports sewerage liquids and solids from one location to another. They are typically used when sewerage can not be moved via gravity. If the sewerage is lower than the sewer and sewage pump is used to move the liquid to the sewer. Sewage pumps usually have a vortex, channel or chopper impeller, these impellers are suitable for handling the solid content present in the sewerage.
Sewage pumps are centrifugal pumps, meaning they contain a motor which spins the impeller.
The rotating impeller creates a suction that lifts the liquid into the pump and through out the discharge. Sewage pumps need to have a suitable impeller to allow the solid particles to pass through the pump body.
Small Contractors Pumps
Attach hose and secure to the discharge connection, lay hose appropriately to where you would like the discharge water to be removed to. Connect to a power source, this should be done by a competent electricially qualified person. For automatic operation combine with the PumpPal control unit and LevelPal. The LevelPal is a level detection unit which will communicate to the PumpPal when to turn the pump on and off.
By using a special seal in the base of the pump, puddle pumps can pump to a low level (1mm) using centrifugal force to pump water away and can be automated with accessories, we offer the PuddlePal pump with the LevelPal and PumpPal.
A type of pump designed to pump low-levels of water due to the pump being fitted with a special seal and volute in the bottom of the unit which enables the low-level pumping. These can be as automatic puddle pumps or puddle pumps with a float switch.
The size of an irrigation pump will depend on what it is irrigating as well as the nozzles being used and the pipework arrangement.
A pump to supply water for irrigation purposes i.e. to water crops or grass.
The best irrigation pump is a reliable and energy efficient pump that can provide the duty needed for the required application.
It is best for the unit and attached system to be inspected by a suitably mechanically trained person. Although this depends on the pump being used as an irrigation pump as some pumps used for irrigation do not require priming.
If the irrigation pump is supposed to operate automatically with a controls system it is best that someone suitably electrically trained inspect the pump and controls, which T-T Controls can help with.
Whether the irrigation pump is manually or automatically operated, it is best that someone suitably electrically trained inspect the pump (and controls if appropriate), which T-T Controls can help with.
The main cause for a drop in pressure is a leak in the system or the pressure vessel has failed, causing a drop in pressure of the system.
We at T-T Pumps sell irrigation pumps as well as offering bespoke sizings for the pumps and accompanying control systems as required.
Normally an irrigation pump will be installed near the water supply or water tank that is feeding the system and then pump the water to where the irrigation is required.
Replacing a pump motor should be done by a suitablly mechanically and electrically trained person. T-T Pumps have travelling site engineers as well as a workshop at our site that can help with this.
Our T-T Controls department can create bespoke controls for an irrigation system to match your desired operation for the system. One (simple) example would be a timer that runs the system at specified times.
Connect the irrigation pump to a water supply and electrical supply then have it pump water to the desired crops or grass etc.
Speak to a competant electrically and mechanically trained engineer, you can call or email T-T Pumps for help with pump related enquiries.
Check the O&M manual for the pump and check what temperature range the pump can work in. If the pump needs protection from low temperatures take care that it still has sufficient cooling for the motor to run without overheating.
A variety of pump types can be used as irrigation pumps, not all of which will hold water however to drain the pump and pipework any non-return valves will need to be opened or removed.
Once the pumps are installed and commissioned the pipework system must be sealed and then the pumps are turned on in order to provide the pressurization within the system. This should be done by a suitablly mechanically trained person, T-T Pumps has travelling site enineers who can help with pressurizing systems.
Competant electrically trained engineers should connect the unit, T-T Pumps have travelling site engineers as well as a workshop at our site that can help with this.
If you contact T-T Pumps with the details of your application and / or the name of your current pump model we can size a replacement unit for you. Please note it is best practice to size from application details.
The size of an irrigation pump will depend on what it is irrigating as well as the nozzles being used and pipework arrangement. T-T Pumps can do bespoke sizings for irrigation pumps if provided with the details of the application.
The pump supplies water for irrigation purposes i.e. to water crops or grass, the pumps we supply at T-T Pumps typically use centrifugal force to achieve this.
Engine Driven Surface Mounted Pumps
A pump that is powered by a petrol or diesel engine.
The pumping action operates as normal, we offer centrifugal and diaphragm engine pumps. The unit is powered by a petrol or diesel engine instead of an electric motor which is commonly used.
Potable and Clean Water Pumps
An irrigation well pump is a well pump being used for irrigation purposes. A well pump is a submersible pump for a hole with a large diameter that is filled with water.
Yes, a well pump can freeze, so check the operating and maintenance manual for information on the minimum and maximum operating temperature range.
Well pumps are normally rated for coninuous operation, although always check the model specific datasheet to be sure.
Well pumps can overheat but cooling is normally provided by the water in the well the pump is submerged in, if you are unsure please speak to our sales department who can advise further.
Well pumps can get clogged, they are designed to handle small bits of grit etc. that may be present in the water in a well and not larger solids.
Well pumps only run in one direction.
No, well pumps are submersible units and do not require priming.
A well pump is unlikely to leak but the pipework it is connected to could leak, it is best this is checked by a suitably mechanically competant person. T-T Pumps has travelling site engineers as well as a workshop at our site that can help with this.
Yes it is possible to move your well pump if required but uninstalling and reinstalling the pump should only be done by a mechanically trained engineer. T-T Pumps has travelling site engineers as well as a workshop at our site that can help with this.
Well pumps do make noise when they run, however due to being down a well it is unlikely that this will be heard from ground level.
Well pumps are normally rated for coninuous operation, although always check the model specific datasheet to be sure.
There is no set period of time a well pump will last for, although a properly selected and maintained pump will often long outlast the manufacturer's warranty period. We can help with pump selections and servicing through our sales and service departments so please contact us by email or phone.
No, the well pump's motor is made to run off a 230V/1Ph/50Hz electrical supply not a 110V/1Ph/50Hz electrical supply.
A suitably trained electrical person should inspect your control system for the well pump, T-T Pumps has travelling site engineers as well as a workshop at our site that can help with this.
This could be because of a few reasons, either the pump is blocked, there is a leak in the pipework system or the pump has worn. We would advise a competent pump engineer inspect your system, we have travelling site engineers who can look into this for you. Get in touch with our service department on +44 (0) 1630 647200 to arrange a visit.
Your requirement for water and the flow of the well pump will determine the cycle of a well pump, up to and including continous operation. Our sales department can help with bespoke selections including cycle times so please contact us by email or phone.
Our well pumps use an electric motor to rotate the impeller and create centrifugal force that then moves the water from the well to the desired location.
If there is no controls system your well pump will run as long as there is a power supply to the pump and will need someone to stop the power supply to the pump. If there is a controls system this will need to be tested by a electrically competent person to check for faults.
If the pump becomes damaged and stops working at the required duty and it is not cost effective to repair the unit then a replacement becomes the best choice. Our sales department can do bespoke sizing of pumps including replacement well pumps.
The best well pump is a reliable and energy efficient unit that provides the required duty. Our sales department can do bespoke sizings of well pumps so please contact us by phone or email.
A submersible propeller creates a current in the liquid in order to mix it.
A suitably mechanically trained engineer should connect the pump to the discharge pipework and if required the suction pipework.
A washdown pump works by discharging water, at a higher pressure and flow than the mains water supply to enable washdown.
The pump should be mounted to ensure adequate water supply whether it is a surface mounted or submersible pump.
A suitably electrically trained engineer should wire the connection.
Ensure the unit is housed in a container, potentially with a heater, in order to prevent the temperature of the pump dropping below the minimum.
The pump should be installed by a suitably mechanically and electrically trained engineer.
The best washdown pump is one that provides high flow and reasonable pressure in the system it is installed in, whilst preferably being energy efficient.
