Pump stations are used where proper drainage is not possible. The tank collects the sewage or foul water from low lying developments and pumps it, at intervals to a main sewer or sewage treatment plant.
A float switch in the tank activates the pump when the level of foul water or waste reaches a pre-defined level.
The Pump chambers contains a chamber, pump, pump controls, float and / or an alarm, based on your individual requirements. Multiple and back-up pumps are also available on request. The Pump Stations is controlled with the use of control float. Control floats are set to turn on and off at pre-defined levels for pumping a specific volume of effluent per rotation.
