Tricel Sewage Pumping Station

Trical Sewage Pumping Station

Tricel pumping stations are used where gravity drainage is not possible. The tank is constructed from GRP and collects the effluent or foul water from low-lying developments and pumps to a main sewer or treatment plant. It may also be used to pump from a sewage treatment plant to the raised bed percolation area. The Tricel® pumping station is fitted with a control float, which activates the pump to pump specific volumes when the capacity has reached a pre-defined level.

Wastewater Code of Practice for Pumping Stations Provision

It may be necessary to incorporate pumping stations in the Works. This Section of the Code of Practice outlines Irish Water’s requirements on such installations.
These requirements apply to small to medium sized pumping stations which will be designated as Type 1, Type 2 and Type 3 pump stations in the following Sections.

Advantages of a Sewage Pumping Station

  • A pump station offers convenience when installing a sewage system, and has a potential of cutting construction cost.
  • Pump stations are fitted with remote monitoring systems, which keep operators updated.
  • Sewage is pumped automatically without any human contact, which eliminates the risk of health problems.
  • Different sizes of pumps are available for domestic applications 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. This minimises the risk of sewage overflowing as you are alerted quickly.

Yearly Maintenance of Pumping Station

The pumping station should be inspected periodically to check the build up of grease and fat particularly on the float switches and pumps. They may need to be withdrawn for hosing down. The outlet inspection box should be checked monthly to ensure that the, effluent is free flowing and clear. The vent allows gas to escape and stops the tank from becoming pressurised. The vents should be checked to make sure it is blocked or over grown.

Notes on the pumping station

  • Check that the depth to the base slab is within the Service Specification requirements for the tank.
  • Maintenance: A certain amount of system maintenance is required, on an ongoing basis to ensure that the system is working correctly. This is the responsibility of the homeowner.
