REQUIREMENT

We were contacted by a drainage company which was experiencing problems with an exisiting pumping station that has recently received a replacement pump. We were asked to attend the site to survey the pumping station, provide
a full analysis and recommend remedial action.

METHOD

• Our engineers attended site with our 18-tonne combination tanker.
• We skimmed the top of the pumping station to remove all debris and jetted down the chamber.
• We inspected the control panel and then isolated the power before lifting the pumps to ensure they were not blocked and inspecting the float switches.
• After the pumps were lowered and power restored we thoroughly wet tested the pump station.

RESULT

• By attending site with one of our tankers we were able to wash down the pump station and manage fl ow rates whilst the pumps were out of use.
• Our comprehensive survey led to a full report which detailed the condition of the pumping station and included a quotation for several options for staged
repairs.
• We offered a comprehensive planned preventative maintenance agreement for the pumping station, as it is imperative that any pump station is regularly
maintained.
• We hope that the customer will proceed with the remedial works to ensure the pump station’s future reliability.

 

FOCUS ON:

PUMP STATIONS REQUIRE
SPECIALIST MAINTENANCE

To ensure a long service life and reduce the risk of breakdowns pump stations
must be regularly maintained by a company with specialist experience.

While able to keep pump stations free of debris and carry out basic maintenance,
most drainage companies do not have the specialist knowledge of Edincare’s
highly trained engineers.
