A Range of High Capacity Pumping Systems for Domestic & Commercial Applications

As the specification by Municipal Agencies has increased over the years, emergency storage requirements have become a mainstay for most applications in line with current legislation.

To accommodate this, Klargester has specifically developed a range of pumping stations which incorporate storage requirements which can be expanded to cater for most applications.

Designed for Quality, Reliability & Peace of Mind

The 2.6m Horizontal Pumping Station is manufactured from robust GRP and incorporates a 100mm reinforcing rib at 770mm intervals. The construction has an 8mm nominal wall thickness to provide a durable and rigid tank system.

The station is designed to incorporate the pump sump at one end of the tank. An integral wall separates the sump section from the holding tank section.

The integral wall has an overflow to allow the effluent to pass to the holding tank in a high level situation. The overflow is screened to 12mm particle size to prevent floating debris and grease from passing from the sump to the holding tank, thereby easing the cleaning process. At a low level in the integral wall, a non-return valve is installed to allow the flow to return to the sump when the system becomes operational again.

The system is simple in design and construction for ease of maintenance.


The system range is suitable for the following applications:

  • Housing developments with up to 24hr storage requirements (10 - 500 houses)
  • Commercial developments
  • Industrial developments
  • Hotels and restaurants
  • Caravan and camping sites


  • Single tank installation up to 80m³ (multiple tank systems available)
  • Multiple valve chamber location and invert options • Weir cover screen prevents solids passing into main storage chamber
  • Unique weir screen cleaning facility removes need to access the chamber during maintenance
  • High level alarm (as applicable)
  • Totally sealed system
  • Factory pre-fabricated under controlled conditions to ensure consistent high quality construction
  • Minimal on-site assembly


  • Easy to install - one piece tank chamber
  • Less cranage requirements compared to concrete pumping stations
  • On-site Health & Safety issues are minimised - no requirement for personnel to enter the tank during excavation on-site to complete installation work
  • Reduced maintenance - easy cleaning out of holding tank
  • Shallower excavation compared to concrete pumping stations

The comprehensive range of quality pumps offers solutions for most applications. Pump sizes range from 0.35kW to 12kW for the standard package pumping system.

Reed Beds | Klargester | A Kingspan Environmental brand

A reed bed is a natural filtration process used in conjunction with a BioDisc or Biosafe Treatment Plant to further enhance the quality of effluent migrating into surrounding watercourse. A reed bed is only required when local water authorities request a better quality of effluent than that discharged from the standard unit. Takes advantage of the heightened 'environmental awareness. Significantly improves discharge from a treatment plant.


Septic Tanks | Klargester | A Kingspan Environmental brand

More advanced products, like Klargester SuperSeptic, offer a much higher level of effluent quality, but in all instances a Sewage Treatment Plant should be considered as the first option. A full Sewage Treatment Plant with integral biological treatment technology produces far superior treated effluent - see our Klargester BioDisc® and Biotec™ range.


Pump Stations | Klargester | A Kingspan Environmental brand

If the main sewer is accessible but at a higher level to (or some distance from) the domestic foul drain, then a domestic sewage pumpset may be used to pump unsettled sewage directly to the main. Installed after the septic tank or treatment system and pumping settled effluent up to an inspection chamber, flow to the drainage system then takes place by gravity in the normal way.
