Commercial Sewage Pumping
Sewage Pump Systems (Floor Mounted)
The floor mounted sewage pump system is still considered to be “new” technology, but these have been successfully marketed with great success for 20 years.
Among happy clients are Tesco, Aldi, Marks and Spencer, Costa Coffee and Caffe Nero who all use this technology.
Using this floor mounted sewage pump technology you are able to put a bank of toilets on the 17th storey of a building, and the other advantage is that they are able to handle other sanitary items that can sometimes be put down the toilet.
Customers like Caffe Nero like the single sewage pump system because in the past they have had terrible problems with the general public abusing the public facilities.
In commercial situations, they are hugely superior to the“domestic” macerator systems that are currently available.
SELECTING THE RIGHT PUMP IS THE KEY
Domestic and Commercial Sewage Pump Selection.
Good Free Flow, 60 mm Free Passage,Based on years of field experience, pump specialists and
maintenance engineers alike recommend selecting a submersible sewage pump that must have:
A Vortex impeller
60 mm or greater free flow pumping passage
If you need a sewage pumping station, then you need to be
assured that for your everyday use and those of your visitors, your toilet is going to function without more than just the basic maintenance.
Just Google for example- Items that get stuck in your toilet! Or call your local plumber for his view point!
Sewage Pumping Stations connected to DOMESTIC & COMMERCIAL Toilets have to cope with:
Tampons, Pads, Wet Wipes and many more items which should not be (but are)thrown down the pan.They ALL have the potential to clog and block..
Cheaper pumps with ONLY 50 mm (minimum Building Regulation)pumping passage can constantly suffer from breakdowns and blockages.
This problem can be significantly reduced by specifying and fitting a pump with a 60 mm or greater free flow and a vortex impeller.
Pumps of this specification also feature larger pump bodies and a MORE POWERFUL MOTOR.
Experience has proved to us just how easy it is to block a pump, particularly one with the minimum Building Regulation
of a free passage diameter of just 50 mm!
So why do some companies offer pumps with the smallest 50 mm diameter passage, why not a larger pump passagethat is proven to make all the difference when it comes to coping with sanitary items.
Lowest cost is the only reason to select a submersible sewage pump with a 50 mm rather than a 60 mm diameter free flow passage capability.The 50mm sized
pump is notably smaller in pump casing and motor size, hence the price!
Some things will flush:
Sewage, toilet paper, (even excess toilet paper) is capable of being handled successfully by a 50 mm diameter free flow sized pump, these substances are soft, break up and even dissolve.
Some things won't flush:
Items such as Tampons, Wet Wipes,Condom’s don’t breakdown or dissolve.
Instead they become trapped, shredded,entangled, eventually clogging and blocking the vortex impeller and volute of your submersible sewage pump.
By just increasing the pumps free flow passage sizes to 60 mm diameter, the success of pumping these products in practice is significantly increased. Thisrecommendation is based on years of
practical field experience.
Make the right selection:
When selecting or specifying a sewage pumping station, ask about the pumps, not all pumps are equal! Insist on a pump with a 60 mm diameter or greater free flow passage for
reliable end user operation. Don’t subject end users to that eventual toilet disaster.
