Pump wells 

What Is a Pump well?

A pump well is a unit that encases a black and grey wastewater pump. It is engineered to pump all types of wastewater; whether domestic, commercial, or industrial, where it is required to pump the flow of the water in the pipes to a higher location.

After water has been used in a home or a commercial property, it is collected and needs to be carried to the wastewater treatment plant for processing before it is returned to the environment.

The flow of wastewater increases, as it nears the treatment plant. When the flow slows down or it becomes impossible for the water to make it to the system, the pumps provide assistance in pushing the water to the wastewater treatment plant and through to the process of treating the liquid waste.

What Is the purpose of Pump wells?

Pump wells need to be Maintained

It handles the wastewater; being fed to gravity pipelines and stored in underground pits or wet wells, which can detect the level of liquid waste. When the wastewater reaches the predetermined level; the pump starts to operate, by lifting the wastewater upwards and the wastewater is discharged through the treatment plant.

You can choose a pump well that suits your specific needs and this equipment can handle all types of wastewater – from effluent to drainage and sewage; be it from domestic, commercial or the industries.
