What is a wet well pumping station?
A wet well pumping station is made up of a large tank, known as a wet well that acts as the receiver for sewage from a building or a group of buildings.
The sewage will sit in the well until it reaches a predetermined level. Once the level is reached, a pump will pressurise the sewage to travel out of the wet well to a point where it enters the main sewer, or that it can then travel into the main sewer using gravity.
When should you consider a wet well pump station?
- When the costs to manage groundworks to allow sewage to flow by gravity outweigh the cost to implement a wet well pump station.
- When the sewer line passes over a ridge.
- When the basement floors are too low to accommodate sewage flow by gravity
- Where a gravity system has not been built.
Advantages of a Sewage Pump Station
- Easy installation, which can reduce construction cost.
- Sewage is pumped automatically without any human contact, eliminating the risk of health issues.
- Varying sizes of pumps are available for both domestic and commercial applications.
- The intake of the pumps is often wide to prevent blocking.
- Sewage pumping systems are fitted with alarms to alert you to problems with the system, minimising the risk of sewage overflowing.
