Pump Station Services and Maintenance

What is a Pump Station?

Pumping stations exist due to waste from buildings not being able to reach the main sewer by gravity alone. Therefore, pumping stations are designed specifically to handle and transport effluent waste.

Generally positioned lower than the usual sewer system is the pump station. The main sewer then has the waste directed up towards it via the pump.

Waste inevitably builds up, reaching a predetermined point set by an engineer. The pump will then be activated to lift the waste through a pressurised pipe system. However, if this pump were to fail or break, the whole process could cease. Therefore, potentially causing floods, blockages, and an entire system breakdown.
