Pump Station Maintenance Legislation

In July 2011, new legislation changes were passed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) for the Private sewer transfer regulations: this was a two part process;

1. Sewerage companies would become responsible for private sewers/drains from 1 October 2011
2. Sewerage companies will become responsible for private pumping stations from 1 October 2016, which meet the eligibility criteria.


Further to the passed law, all newly built private pumping stations would need to abide and adopt Hydro Cleansing Ltd or any relevant sewerage company to have responsibility of their pump stations’ accumulated waste.

If you own a private pumping station and notice this transfer regulation after 1 October 2016, please contact us now and we will be able to develop it into a potentially eligible.

What is a Pump Station

Pumping stations are also called lift stations, they contain pressure pumps and equipment that are designed to pump sewage and water to overcome resistance from one place to another. The pump station is generally positioned lower than the sewer system, meaning the pump is required to move the waste to the sewer.

If the pump fails, the process will cease, which can potentially cause floods, blockages and even an entire system breakdown on larger sites.

Pumps, like all forms of electro-mechanical appliances, require careful maintenance to make sure that they are always working. Regular servicing and maintenance ensures that there are no emergencies or disasters (such as floods) which could prove to be both costly and extremely disruptive compared to regular mainatenace.
