What is a pumping station?
A pumping station is used to regulate wastewater flow and provide extra pressure when natural gravity flow is not available.
Rewatec pumping stations are prefabricated and can be used in residential projects and in a full range of larger civil works, whether commercial, municipal, or industrial. The models for residential use are made in rotomolded 100% virgin high density polyethylene (HDPE), while the models for larger projects are made in glass reinforced plastic (GRP).
We offer a wide range of configurations for the different models. The stations can be fitted with up to three electric pumps, both single-phase and three-phase. The stations are fitted with an in-built electrical control panel, valves, on/off float, and level detection alarms.
Pumping stations for municipal or industrial use are fitted with a guide bars system for easy removal and with docking stations for coupling.
Examples of applications
- Single-family homes
- Apartment buildings
- Camping sites and hotels
- Industrial units
- Office and commercial developments
- Small communities or municipalities
How do the Rewatec pumping stations work?
The Rewatec pumping stations operate automatically thanks to their simple float system and the control panel supplied.
Each pumping station has an on/off float that moves up and down as wastewater levels change inside the tank. When the float rises to a predetermined level, the pump begins to run. When the wastewater level is below the float, the on/off float moves down with the falling water level and the pump stops running. If the inlet flow is greater than that which the pump can flush out, or if the pump breaks down, the water level increases activating the high-level detection alarm.
In the case of a dual-pump system, and in normal conditions, the pumps work in alternating sequence. For larger flow rates, both pumps can work at the same time.
Choosing the proper pump depends on the designed flow rates and pump head. We recommend that you contact our team of experts to help you choose the right equipment.
Premier Tech recommends that you follow the maintenance instructions according to the model installed. Protect your investment by having it regularly inspected to help extend the service life of the system and maintain your warranty.
If the pumping station is installed together with a septic tank, we recommend that both systems be pumped out at the same time.
