If you’re looking to install or replace your pump station, you may be wondering which brand or manufacturer is best. Klargester are renowned for their specialist designs and contributions to the sewage industry over the last 50 years. Not only do Klargester create industry-leading products, they work closely with regulatory bodies to ensure every one of their products is completely compliant with all relevant health and safety regulations.
In this month’s article, we’ll be looking at the benefits of installing a Klargester pumping station, helping you make the best choice for your home or business’s sewage and drainage.
What is a pump station?
Pump stations are a system that is used to pump wastewater – either foul or surface – away from an area where a normal gravity system cannot be used. An example of this is a basement, where the pooling water will be lower down than the drains and sewers on the property and therefore the water would be required to move upwards to drain away. Clearly, this is not possible without the aid of a mechanical system, which is where a pump station comes in handy. Other examples of when a pump station may be used include:
- Building extensions
- Housing developments
- Nursing homes
Some effluent waste collection and treatment systems also require a pump station to dispose of wastewater, including:
- Sewage treatment plants
- Septic tanks
- Rainwater harvesting systems
- Surface water attenuations
Pump stations tend to have one or two operating pumps which can be used when requested, or can switch on immediately when it detects the presence of water – making pump stations an excellent option for properties at a high risk of flooding.
Pump stations are available in varying sizes, making them useful for both small, domestic applications and large, commercial applications alike.
The importance of a fully functional and reliable pump station cannot be understated. If your pump station was to fail, you risk your property flooding with wastewater and effluent which can be damaging to your property, expensive to repair, and a health and safety risk – especially if the incident were to occur in a catering or public service environment. To avoid this, it is vital that you choose the best system available; that’s why here at Wildon UK, we’re a proud supplier of Klargester models.
