Where waste can’t reach the main sewer unaided, pump stations are specifically designed to transport this waste. A general pump station is usually positioned below the sewer system, so a pump is required to send the waste up towards the main sewer. When the waste reaches a certain point after building up, the pump will be activated, lifting it through a specialised, pressurised pipe system. The whole process could stop if the pump were to breakdown or crash, possibly instigating floods, blockages or an entire system collapse.
Our drainage engineers are specialists, fully trained and qualified, regularly carrying out all aspects of pump installation and servicing. The services on offer include but are not limited to:
- Pump station system design
- Pump station system maintenance
- Sewer pump maintenance
- Pump station system repair
On top of providing vital services in cleaning and maintaining pump stations, fitting equipment and dealing with floods and blockages, Hydro Cleansing offer a comprehensive design and planning service including the sale and specification of pipework, power cabling, switch gear and telemetry equipment.
Like all forms of electro-mechanical appliances, a pump, requires careful servicing, making sure it’s fully working. Frequent servicing and maintenance ensures that there are no emergency disasters which could potentially be expensive as well as disruptive.
Offering unrivalled knowledge and expertise in pump station servicing and repair, all work is undertaken by highly trained, professional pump engineers, who operate a large fleet of extremely powerful vehicles, in addition to our confined space division.
No matter the size of the project, a domestic issue or commercial industrial pump station, we give each job equal and full attention. We have a proven track record of working with all aspects of pump station cleaning, servicing and installation.

After the summer we’ve had, where the weathers not been able to make up its mind, some people may be experiencing bad smells escaping from their drainage systems. The combination of rain and damp weather then sunny spells and warm weather can lead to this and with the weather the way it’s been, it’s also been the perfect condition for those underground roots in your garden to cause major problems to your drain and sewer systems, triggering blockages after penetrating drains and pipes.
Tracing blockages can be difficult so the best and most efficient way is for Hydro Cleansing’s engineers to locate them for you using our CCTV push rods, crawler cameras or Megacam. We can then provide a drainage survey which we have found to be extremely cost effective, producing minimal disruption. Any damage or leaks within the piping can then be recorded and work can commence to repair them.
Prevention and regular drain maintenance is obviously the key to experiencing minimal or no problems at all but when one does occur for peace of mind remember to use a trusted, professional company, such as Hydro Cleansing, with a reputation that exceeds the commercial and domestic spectrum. Our jetting vans and combination units pump away blockages, clean fat/grease build up and wash away any other unwanted substances that shouldn’t be there.
With drainage systems increasingly becoming more technical giving it a go yourself is an option you should really steer clear of. It could even make the problem worse so whenever you have a drain or sewer problem, don’t hesitate in calling us 24/7 on 0808 256 5844.
