What is a pumping station?
A pump station is a mechanical device that regulates a water supply. It provides extra pressure to move water downstream or to higher elevations when it is not possible to do so via gravity. The installation of a pump station can also protect properties against flooding due to surcharges in downstream sewers.
With nominal capacities up to 50,000 litres for commercial and municipal projects, and capacities up to 5,300 litres for residential projects, we can provide a reliable a sewage pump station, or water pump station for you.
All of our pump chambers are constructed from durable GRP and come with everything you need to make installation and set-up a breeze.

How do our pump stations work?
Our GRP pumping stations, for residential applications, collect sewage, water or effluent and then reliably transport it downstream for treatment or final dispersal. They are supplied with a single pump as standard and can be installed at any point of an on-site treatment system.
Each station has an on/off float that moves up and down as water levels change inside the tank. When the float rises to a predetermined level, an integrated effluent pump begins to run. After discharge, the on/off float moves down with the falling water level and the pump stops running. All of our residential water pumping stations can be supplied with a single or a dual pump. Our 1,800L, 2,800L, 3550L and 5,300L pump stations can be supplied as single phase or three phase and as low, medium or high duty. Isolation valves and non-return valves are fitted as standard.
Please note, as per the building regulations, the minimum daily discharge of foul drainage should be calculated as 150 litres per person per day for domestic use.
Commercial and municipal
Our large-scale horizontal pump stations are designed specifically for the rigours of commercial and municipal wastewater treatment projects.
All models feature an alternating dual-pump sequence for maximum reliability, and a control panel that gives you complete command over pump operations.
In addition to lifting wastewater to higher levels, these solutions can be used as equalisation tanks to dose and regulate flow to downstream components. This unique feature reduces the overall size of a sewage treatment plant and protects the system from shocks caused by hydraulic fluctuations.
Maintaining your pump station
By carrying out regular maintenance checks on you pump stations you can extend the life of your water lifting system. Potential blockages and unanticipated flow periods can be quickly identified which can in turn can prevent potential floods, wastewater pollution and even site closures. Speak to the professionals at Premier Tech to determine the right servicing and maintenance plan for you.
