What Is A Pump Station or Pump Well?

Having a wastewater system installed at your home or place of business is a great investment in your property. However, as with any system, understanding what the different parts are, and what they’re designed to do is important to ensure that your system is functioning correctly. When it comes to having a wastewater system, an integral part of your system is the pump station or pump well. Read on to learn more about this essential aspect of any wastewater system and why it’s important to know how it works.

What is a pump station or pump well?

A pump station or pump well (https://ecoseptic.com.au/pumpwells/) is an electromechanical unit that is a crucial part of any wastewater (http://www.ecoseptic.com.au/) system. It is an underground septic tank that is used to collect and transport fluid from one point to a higher elevation. Generally, the pumps will kick in and move the wastewater when a certain amount of pressure or flow rate is required and gravity is not sufficient. When the underground septic tank fills to a certain level the pump will turn on and lift the wastewater through pressurised pipes, eventually pumping the wastewater to a treatment plant.

When are pump stations used?

A pump station or pump well will be utilised when sewage or wastewater is unable to be naturally transported by gravity to the designated wastewater treatment facility. This is most often when it is required to pass up an incline such as a hill. They are often also used when it is more cost-effective and efficient to use a pumping system instead of waiting for gravity to move the wastewater.
