PUMP STATIONS FOR THE COLLECTION AND DISPOSAL OF WASTE WATERAND/OR SEWAGE EFFLUENT
Pump Stations are available in capacity ranging from 6 litres to 6500 litres and selection of the size of tank and size of pump is determined by a number of different factors.
Question: What size tank do I need?
Answer: This depends on the amount of effluent that is being discharged into it and if it is a domestic application or a commercial/industrial application.
Question: What size/type do I need for a domestic application?
Answer: If sewage effluent is being discharged into the tank and it is secondary to a gravity fed toilet system within the dwelling, choose between a Sanisplit or a 90 litre Blue Box. If it is the primary system of storage and disposal of sewage effluent, then a 1200 litre polyethelene tank is required to give a minimum of 24 hour storage.
