Sewage pumping stations are prone to build-up of 'non-biological' matter which floats and forms a layer on the surface of the sump.

Overtime this build-up can prevent float-switches operating and should the layer be drawn into the pumps themselves can lead to a blockage and system failure.

To prevent failure and maximise the working-life of the pumps Davies Waste recommend periodic de-sludging and washing down of the pump chamber. The frequency of sump cleaning depends upon the nature of the connected property, for example a pub may require sump cleaning twice yearly or quarterly whereas a domestic system may only require cleaning once every two years.
