Do I need a Pump Station installed?

If any of the following apply to you, then you will likely need to have a pumping station installed:

  • The ground level is too low for drainage pipes to flow downward to the mains public sewer.
  • The drainage pipes pass over a ridge or raised ground.
  • The waste volume from the property is too high and could overload a regular sewage system.

FAQs

The installation of a pump station can vary in duration based on several factors. The complexity and size of the pump station, site specific conditions, necessary civil works, equipment availability and the efficiency of the installation team can all impact the timeline.

Typically, a small to mid-sized pump station may take anywhere from a few days to a couple of weeks to install. This includes tasks such as:

  1. Site Preparation: Clearing the site, excavation, levelling, etc.
  2. Civil Works: Construction of pump house, wet well, manholes, etc.
  3. Pump and Piping Installation: Assembling and installing pumps, pipes, and valves.
  4. Electrical Works: Installation of electrical components like control panels, wiring and sensors.
  5. Commissioning and Testing: Making sure the system works properly before handing it over.

On average a new pumping station will cost between £5,000 and £13,000 but this will vary on factors such as size and capacity, location and type of pump.

Understanding the intricate workings of a pumping station can be complex. For a detailed explanation of what a pumping station is and how it operates, we recommend reading our detailed blog post, “What is a Pumping Station and How Does It Work?”. Click here to read.

A pumping station most commonly has one or two pumps, depending upon its application. They can be used for either pumping surface water or sewage. Single pump systems are generally for domestic dwellings and twin pump systems are generally for commercial applications like a nursing home, a hotel or a business. The pumps move the surface water, effluent and waste water from the dwelling to the mains sewer. It’s important that the systems are serviced on a regular basis depending upon the manufacturer’s instructions.

Maintenance: Have the system serviced as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Don’t put the following down the sinks/drains: Grease, fat, oil, wipes, cotton buds, tooth picks, sanitary items etc. Don’t use your toilet as a rubbish bin!

The responsibility in most cases lay with the property owner or company that pays to maintain the system. Sometimes the water authorities take ownership but this is always well documented and all parties involved would be made aware.
