We live in a disposable age with convenient products, which can be used and thrown away. Often when problems occur on a foul water pump station, it is due to inappropriate items being disposed of down the toilet or sink.
To help keep your pumps in good working order, we have compiled a list of items that you should not flush down your toilets or sinks. These are all items that could result in a blocked pump and cause the motor to burn out.
If your washing machine runs into your pump station, liquid detergent should be used instead of powder. This will avoid clogging around the impeller. Misuse of your pump station will invalidate your warranty.
