Packaged Pump Station Replacement
Over the last few years our pump maintenance and repair division have been servicing one of our key customers packaged pump stations in Wiltshire.
Over recent visits, our engineers had noticed and reported that the fiberglass pumping chamber was starting to fail and becoming distorted, blistering and leaking in places.
With the station only being approximately 7 years old, we obtained approval from the NHBC to remove and replace the failing pump station prior to its complete collapse.
The Removal of Failed Package Pump Station
Our skilled pump engineers isolated all of the pumping equipment, removed the pumps, controls and floats from the chamber, bunged both inlet and outlet and installed an over pump to enable removal of the chamber.
Our civil contract partner then began excavation of the site, breaking out the concrete surround, dewatering the excavation during the works and within two days removed the blistered tank from site.
Whilst contending with a large amount of ground water, our specialist pump engineers then started work on the installation of a new BBA approved packaged pump station on site.
Installation of new Packaged Pump Station
Our engineers connected both in and outlet pipes, adding ducting for the power and floats, before shuttering the entire chamber in concrete and backfilling the excavation with a mix of concrete and earth.
The surrounding area was top soiled and re-seeded, a new enclosure erected around the double access covers and controls, and the site was left in full auto mode.
A successful removal of a faulty packaged pump and the installation of a new one completed on time and within budget by the team at Mawdsleys.
