Installation & Commissioning

As specialist manufacturers of pumped drainage solutions, our expertise in installing our equipment is second to none.

We carry out the mechanical and electrical part of the pump station installation with no split responsibility. We also offer basic installations for the construction phase, backed up with full installation and commissioning near practical completion.

Our ‘one-stop-shop’ approach to installation, commissioning and handover allows the project responsibility to be assigned solely to PPS, meaning you have no split responsibility with several different contractors.  

Our offering is usually split into two visits.

  • Visit 1 – The Survey
    • We survey every installation & commissioning job free of charge. At this point, we can recommend any remedial works that require to be carried out in advance of the installation. If needed, we can produce a quotation to do this work.
  • Visit 2 – The Installation
    • We will mount pumps in the chamber and mount electrical control/alarm panel within 3m of chamber base. Electrically connections are then made to the pump(s) and control/alarm panel to isolator or spurs (installed by others). A cable duct with draw cord must be provided. This duct should be continuous and run from the chamber to within 500mm of isolator/spur. We are not able to extend cable ducts, run cable tray, clip cables or leave cables in open excavations.

Please note: Before installation chamber(s) must be free of water, sludge and debris.

If manhole covers have been fitted these must be removable by normal lifting methods. An additional charge may be required for covers that cannot be lifted due to grout/cement or a chargeable return visit may need to be made.

Test & Commission – Commissioning ensures the equipment is installed in accordance with the manufacturers’ guidelines. This re-starts the warranty and protects you at the time of handover. The commissioning certificate will follow on receipt of final payment.

Our price does not include for lowering chamber into excavation, any civil work or pipework outside the chamber.

Please note: There will be an additional charge for commissioning if we are unable to do this at the time of installation.

Client Handover – Our client handover offers a smooth passagefrom practical completion to ongoing servicingthrough one of our service plans. We will support your customer moving forward and provide an exceptional aftercare service. We’re so confident, we give a lifetime warranty on parts for the life of our most popular plan. Weoperate 24/7/365 which allows for a completelyhassle free relationship. Use our ‘Contractor Customer Handover Request’ form here.

Communication is key!

We ensure you will always have one point of contact throughout the complete process. All our service team are trained to understand your requirements and have an in-depth product knowledge. We work with a state of the art system which allows us to keep records of every site (including equipment and jobs).

Highly recommended... I wish all my subcontractors were as professional as PPS.
