Sewage pumpstations are designed to handle foul water, sewage, natural human waste and biodegradable products. Other household waste and non-biodegradable products should never be disposed of through the drainage system.

Disposal of non bio-degradable products will affect the reliability of all pumpstations, causing pump to block and storage chambers, pumping stations to become congested with non-pumpable waste.

To prevent failure and maximise the working-life of the pumps we recommend periodic de-sludging and washing down of the pump chamber.

Cleaning of the sump is typically carried out in conjunction with our service engineers maintenance visit. Our engineers will be able to recommend a bespoke cleaning schedule for each site thereby minimising costs by only cleaning when necessary.
