Sewage is created wherever people live in buildings and can be split into the categories ofwastewater and rainwater. Wastewater is usually piped straight into the sewer system andthen treated at a wastewater treatment plant, so that it can be returned to the water cycle.However, rainwater can be drained both separately via a separation system or together withthe wastewater using a mixing system. Developers and operators are advised to alwaysdraw up a drainage plan with a specialist planner to prevent surprises later on.
In order to ensure the drainagestation remains operational, theindividual elements such as thesewage lifting unit, backflowprevention devices and pipesmust be maintained and cleanedat regular intervals. In cellarsflooded by severe precipitation,the problem is usually caused bythe lack of a shut-off device forthe drainage points. As a notinsignificant number of the drainage pipes installed in buildings leak or start to leak overtime, it is recommended that you perform a leak test regularly to ensure that your sewagelifting unit does not pump sewage into the masonry and cause extensive damage. Wilo,as a premium manufacturer of high-quality pump systems, is pleased to be your first portof call for customer-oriented service and integrated system solutions.
Drainage of properties and buildings
For most people, smooth, trouble-free sewage removal is a normal state that is taken forgranted. The importance of properly functioning building and property drainage stationsusually only becomes apparent when the water no longer drains away properly.
Normally, problems occur in drainage stations due to damaged or broken pipes, which allowsewage and eroded earth to get into the ground water. This causes contamination, resultingin enormous costs due to longer pump running times in wastewater treatment plants. Severeerosion and washout of earth under roads can endanger the infrastructure in the vicinity.This is why property owners are obliged to ensure that correct operation of the drainagestation is maintained. We are pleased to be at your side as a competent partner on allmatters relating to care and maintenance.
