Pumping Stations

New Government legislation, which came into force on October 1st 2016, means that water companies will now be responsible for all private pumping stations. Therefore, all new build pumping stations must comply with criteria and specifications in order to be adopted by the relevant sewerage company.

Using the latest off-site manufacturing methods within Asset’s automated factory to produce Weholite packaged pumping stations, means that this product is truly designed for manufacture and assembly offsite. 

In turn it allows clients to save on time by improving site productivity whilst also reducing risks on site. In addition to enabling significant savings from a more streamlined installation process and reductions in the construction materials used, the off-site manufacturing process also eliminates the need for confined space entry to complete the works.

These systems are manufactured to varying depths and fully assembled in the factory with all the internal pipework and valves. The modular system simplifies the installation process, reducing overall cost whilst ensuring each assembly is functioning correctly.

A factory-fitted HDPE benching arrangement provides the pumps with an ideal operating environment, reducing the potential for blockages and improving longterm reliability and design life of the pumping station. In most cases there is no need for a concrete surround due to the utilization of Weholite Modular structural bases, which help counter groundwater and flotation.

This gives property developers and water companies true benefits when it comes to reducing the overall capital cost of construction and installation of the pumping station itself as well as contributing to significant improvements in the reliability of the system with the corresponding reductions in operational running costs.

Pumping Stations in the Housing Sector

In response to the Government’s plan to transfer ownership of private drains and sewers to water companies, Asset International Ltd, has formed a strategicalliance with the market leader in sewage and surface water pumping systems, PDAS(Pump Design and Services), to develop modular solutions designed specifically for the housing sector.

The partnership between PDAS and Asset provides the housing market with a new, innovative product in particular for sewers for adoption pumping stations. The collaboration will help house builders and developers provide more reliable solutions that will be ready for adoption by the water companies.
