Pump Station Cleaning

Maintenance and Rehabilitation

Our team of operatives are experienced in cleaning pumping stations from above or via confined space entry. Our trained teams work using a jet vac vehicle to enable the removal of waste. This then lets us clean the chamber thoroughly. McBreen Enviro UK can also provide replacement pumps and services for the on-site removal and replacement of faulty pumps. This means we can enter the tank to clean and vacuum silt and debris.

All our team members have full training in accessing pump chambers and associated assets. As with all instances of confined space entry, we produce a full risk assessment and secure a confined space permit to carry out the works. We are available throughout the UK to deal with your pump station cleaning needs.

Pump Station Cleaning from McBreen Enviro UK

What is the purpose of a Pump Station?

A sewage pumping station simply moves sewage from one location to another, either horizontally and/or uphill when gravity cannot be relied upon to do the job. Ordinarily, the sewage network relies on gravity for waste to flow from homes and businesses to the mains sewer, where this cannot happen a pumping station is installed to transfer the waste from A to B.

How does a Pump Station work?

When low areas of land or where pipe depth underground becomes excessive, pump stations are installed. These stations pump the wastewater to a higher point so it can again flow by gravity, or the wastewater can be pumped under pressure directly to the treatment plant for processing.

Why is it important to clean Pump Stations?

Pump stations should be cleaned regularly to ensure all working components do not block or fail. If a pumping station is not cleaned regularly the very heavy waste will settle on the base of the tank and eventually block the pumps from removing the waste. When the pumps are blocked all waste flowing into the pumping station then has nowhere to go and causes blockages and overflowing manholes.
