If a pumpstation serves your property, the likelihood is that the property is not connected directly to the mains sewer system
Sewage pumpstations are designed to handle foul water, sewage, natural human waste and biodegradable products. Other household waste and non-biodegradable products should never be disposed of through the drainage system.
Disposal of non bio-degradable products will affect the reliability of all pumpstations, causing pump to block and storage chambers, pumping stations to become congested with non-pumpable waste.
Bear in mind too that it isn't only the toilet that is connected to your pumpstation; anything that goes down the sink, bath etc. also ends up there.
Pumpstations over time accumulate settled solids. It is good practice to check and if necessary empty/desludge you pumpstation at the same time as any wechanical or electrical servicing is carried out.
It is vital to your pumping stations ongoing operation and should be carried out regularly. Mechanical and electrical servicing, particularly, must be performed by properly trained personnel suitably qualified and experienced in this type of work.
