Domestic Sewage Pumpsets

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.

Whilst single pump units are acceptable for individual houses, it is recommended that twin pumping systems be used for multiple dwellings.

Effluent Pumpsets

A septic tank or treatment system pumpset can be used to disperse settled effluent when a site has a high water table or adverse invert levels. 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.

Surface Water Pumpsets

Due to the amount of rainwater that can fall in a short time period, Surface water run-off is often the most demanding of all applications, whether hard-standing or roof areas.

Kingspan Environmental offers a comprehensive range of packaged pump systems in both standard form or manufactured to bespoke specifications. Careful calculation of the run-off areas is essential when sizing these pump systems.

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.


High Capacity Pumping | Klargester

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. Klargester has specifically developed a range of pumping stations which incorporate storage requirements which can be expanded to cater for most applications. The construction has an 8mm nominal wall thickness to provide a durable and rigid tank system.


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.
