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?

Sewers for Adoption is an initiative designed to ensure that commercial and domestic developers build to a required standard and quality, in accordance with the current legislation detailed in the latest publication of Sewers for Adoption (SFA). The specification, build and installation of the system must comply with local Water Company specifications in order to achieve ‘adoption’. The water company is then liable for the responsibility of the running and operating costs once the adoption has taken place.

Since the introduction of sewers for adoption in 1981, we have worked with Water Companies throughout the UK and we are fully compliant of their requirements and expectations. This allows us to ensure that your system is adopted within a fast and cost-effective time frame, as well as providing the correct equipment to meet the needs of your particular scheme.
