Pump and Pumping Stations

Installation of Pumping Stations

Prior to having a pumping station installed it is essential to have a survey. We also need to ascertain what is required in your individual circumstance under relevant laws. Without a full insight to your current circumstances, you may not be able to get an accurate estimate.

At ASL Limited we use no-dig methods such as:

  • Directional boring for installing pumping mains (trenchless technology).
  • Chain trenching service.
  • Excavator trenching in places where the ground is not suitable or the distance is too short for the chain trencher.

Other services:

  • Pumping station troubleshooting.
  • Supply and installation of grease and fat traps.
  • Our own emergency tanker (emergency – same day service).
  • Supply, installation and maintenance of treatment plants and septic tanks.
  • Supply and installation of small pumps to land drains.
  • Pumping station installation and directional boring for pumping main

We use a trencher when we need to run a pumping main pipe through a field. We turn up on the day at a given time, check for gas pipes, electric cables etc. and are off. Our machine will cut through to the depth we want in no time, then we use a light machine – two or three-ton in weight – to gently pull the powdered soil to backfill. We then we pick up our trencher and take it away, no fuss or bother. I would recommend this to anyone.

A Surface Water Warning

It must be noted that if surface water enters your system in a surge, such as during heavy rainfall or a storm, it is possible that it will stir up wastewater already present in the system. This will ruin any separation that has already taken place and allow larger buildups of effluent to pass through the system without being treated. If you suspect that too much surface water is being allowed into your sewage treatment plant, you may wish to have a CCTV drain survey conducted through us.

We can use the most up-to-date, flexible cameras to take detailed footage of your drains, locating the source of the issue and helping you to get it fixed afterwards. We may also suggest that roof water down pipes and surface water gullies are checked, to ensure that they are not flowing into the foul water drain on your property.
