Pump Stations

JDP offers a range of High Capacity Package Pumping Systems for Commercial applications of settled effluent and crude waste applications. Package Pump Stations are also available for surface water applications with the same main features and benefits, but designed to the requirements of water rather than sewage. These Pump Stations are available complete with single or twin pumps with float switches and high level alarm systems with built in storage up to 24hrs if requested.

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.

To accommodate this, JDP offers a range of pumping stations which incorporate storage requirements which can be expanded to cater for most applications prior to pumping.

The correct sizing of the pump station is crucial to the performance as is the prevention of grease build up inside that plant.

Features & Benefits
  • Single tank installation up to 80m³ (multiple tank systems available)
  • Multiple valve chamber location and invert options
  • Weir cover screen prevents solids passing into main storage chamber
  • High level alarm (as applicable)
  • Unique weir screen cleaning facility removes need to access the chamber during maintenance
  • Totally sealed system
  • Factory pre-fabricated under controlled conditions to ensure consistent high quality construction
  • Minimal on-site assembly
  • Cost effective solution to reach mains drainage
  • Bespoke system, engineered to suit the criteria of any particular application
  • Available in GRP or PE
  • Capable of pumping solid or liquid waste
  • Both single and duplex systems are available using pumps from quality manufacturers
  • Power failure storage capacity
  • Can be used in combination with treatment plants or septic tanks
  • Easy to install - one piece tank chamber
  • Less crainage requirements compared to concrete pumping stations
  • On-site health & Safety issues are minimised - no requirement for personnel to enter the tank during excavation on-site to complete installation work.
  • Reduced maintenance - easy cleaning out of holding tank
  • Shallower excavation compared to concrete pumping stations

Package pump stations are used for pumping crude sewage to a main sewer drain or treated effluent from a septic tank or treatment plant to a soak away or watercourse. Surface water drainage versions are also available.

Pump chambers are designed and built to suit the individual requirements of each application.

JDP offer the following different systems:

  • Settled effluent pump set. (For pumping settled effluent to soakaway)
  • Single crude pump station. (For pumping raw sewage from property to holding tank or main sewer pipe).
  • Duel twin crude pump station (For pumping raw sewage from property to holding tank or main sewer pipe). With standby system. All pumping chambers are designed and built subject to type of application, distance to be pumped, and height/fall.
  • Surface water pumping systems (for pumping surface water run-off from hard standings or roof areas. Careful calculation of the run-off areas is essential when sizing these pump stations).

The storage pumping system range is suitable for the following applications:

  • Housing developments with up to 24hr storage requirements (10-500 houses)
  • Commercial developments
  • Industrial developments
  • Hotels and restaurants
  • Caravan and camping sites

The comprehensive range of quality pumps offers solutions for most applications. Pump sizes range from 0.35kW to 12kW for the standard package pumping system.

Siting the Unit

  1. British Standard BS: 6297-1983 recommends that sewage treatment works should be as far away from habitable buildings as is economically practicable. The direction of the prevailing wind should be considered in relation to any properties when siting the works. The sludge emptying contractor’s vehicle will probably have a maximum reach of 30 metres, but the depth from the ground level to the bottom of the tank must not exceed 5 metres.
  2. The installation should be carried out in accordance with the requirements of the Construction and Building Regulations. An inspection chamber should be installed upstream of the Treatment Plant. For discharge quality sampling purposes a sampling chamber can be provided (optional extra).


  • Read Full Installation Guide provided with delivery of goods.
  • Ensure Building Regulation approval.
  • Ensure consent of discharge is approved from the environment agency.
  • Ensure access for desludging tanker. (Building regulations suggest 30m max).
  • Check orientation and heights of inlet and outlets.
  • Use a pump to keep excavation clean and free from rising ground water during installation.


  • Use the correct backfill material.
  • Site tank at furthest practical location from habitable dwellings. Most building regulations recommend a minimum of 7m.
  • Fit the correct cover & frame (pedestrian duty) LOCKABLE.
  • Consider drainage falls, generally 1 in 60/70 between house and tank and max. 1 in 200 for filter bed system.
  • Lift the tank using adequate ropes or slings through both of the lugs fitted either side of the neck.


  • Subject the tank to impact or contact with sharp edges.
  • Add neck extensions to the tank, nor, build a brick manhole above the tank neck (as this increases burial depth of the tank beyond that which it was designed for). We do not recommend extending the neck of the tank under any circumstances.
  • Install tank deeper than the depth that the fitted neck will allow.
  • Install in trafficked areas without a suitable load bearing slab.
  • Site the tank so that it is subjected to excess ground pressure (e.g. sloping sites) or applied loads such as may be generated by the proximity of vehicular traffic.
  • Lift using only one of the lugs.
  • Fill an unsupported tank.

Service Agreement

Although of a minimal nature, it is advised that the plant is serviced periodically to help ensure many years of trouble-free operation. Service Agreements are available through your local JDP.

This is a requirement of the new PPG4 guidelines.
