Our methods

Pumping stations exist where waste from a building cannot reach the main sewer by gravity alone and are specifically designed to handle and transport effluent waste.  The pump station is generally positioned lower than the sewer system, meaning a pump is required to direct the waste up towards the main sewer.

When waste builds up and reaches a predetermined point, the pump will be activated to lift it through a pressurized pipe system.  If this pump were to fail or break, the whole process could cease, potentially causing floods, blockages and an entire system breakdown.

A pump, like all forms of electro-mechanical appliances, requires careful maintenance to make sure that it is working properly.  Regular servicing and maintenance ensures that there are no emergency disasters (such as floods) which could prove to be both costly and extremely disruptive.

No matter how large or small the project is whether it is an isolated residential problem or commercial industrial pump station, each job is given equal and full attention.  All jobs are carried out by our team of highly trained, professional engineers who have a proven track record of working with all aspects of pump station cleaning, maintenance and repair.
