New Pump Out For Llangollen - Anglo Welsh's Trevor Marina


After over twenty years of service, the large centrifugal pump system, which operated the blackwater pumpout at Anglo Welsh’s Trevor Marina on the Llangollen Canal, had become unreliable and expensive to service, causing challenges all round. So, the marina management called in Warwickshire based Marine Sanitation Specialists LeeSan to advise on a replacement.


Karl Sutcliffe, Technical Director at LeeSan comments. “We surveyed the site and made appropriate recommendations. I think that the new, more powerful, quieter and technically advanced pump came as something of a surprise to the Marina team as it is about a tenth of the size of the old unit. This means that the boatyard team have now also gained valuable storage space in the pump house”.

The new installation features the latest peristaltic LS30T pump and a dedicated operation panel fitted with its own RCD Safety cut-out for overload protection. The pump is also “timer controlled” to protect it from running dry and to avoid accidental misuse.

The new pump services two separate standpipes, each with an individual suction hose and an ISO8099 probe valve. Because the marina is next to the world famous Pontcyllte Aquaduct and consequently extremely busy, the site owners expect these to be fully utilised on a regular basis, including servicing their busy hire boat fleet.



As part of the service, Leesan have also organised a comprehensive service contract to ensure that the equipment is always in excellent operational order and should provide another twenty years (or more) of reliable service.
