Water Management: Drainage

System for basement and cellar drainage

Water entering the basement through walls is controlled behind the wall membrane system and is diverted to a drainage channel fitted around the perimeter of the basement. The water enters the channel through pre-drilled holes along its length and is then diverted to a suitable drainage point, either natural or a sump and mechanical pump.

Basement and cellar drainage system

Drainage Sump

A system consists of a pre-formed polyethylene sump basin, a mains powered submersible pump, a non-return valve assembly and a battery operated high water level alarm, which is linked to an integral float switch.

The high water level alarm is an essential component within a sump system. In the event of mechanical failure of the pump or an unexpected power failure, the water will continue to fill the sump. When the water reaches the level of the alarm float switch, the alarm will sound, giving warning of the failure. The alarm is powered by a battery, which should be positioned in a convenient location such as a kitchen or lounge where it will be heard. Once the alarm is heard immediate action must be taken to avoid flooding.

Some systems offer greater reliability by including features such as; twin pumps, battery backup and non return valves.

Battery Backup system

The Battery Backup system is a 12-volt battery operated pump system designed for use in conjunction with the sump system.

Its unique design gives the client peace of mind knowing that their water pumping system can remain operational and their basement can remain dry, even in the event of a mechanical breakdown of the primary pump and / or a temporary power failure.

The battery back-up system consists of a 12-volt battery, a 12-volt pump, a battery trickle charger, float switch and a compact water-resistant housing. All electrical and mechanical parts are located away from the sump chamber; this ensures no contamination from water.

The pump, which is located within the housing, is connected to the sump chamber by a suction hose. The pump operates when the float switch, in the sump chamber, is engaged. The pump draws the water from the sump through the pump and to a suitable drainage point.

The 12-volt trickle charger maintains the charge in the battery whilst the mains power is live. In the event of a power failure the charge held within the battery will operate the pump. When the power is re-instated the trickle charger will boost the battery back-up to full charge. During a power failure the expected continual running time of the 12v pump would be approximately 6 hours, but most commonly the pump would run intermittently for about 1 minute at a time.

Foul Water Sumps and Pumps

Drainage Range S 150/200/360 is a range of foul water sumps and pumps to deal with the problem of pumping waste from areas below the drainage points in to the main drains.

These systems are individually designed to meet the needs of the site and calculated to meet Building Regulation requirements.

There is a range of these systems, the 150, 200 and 360, which relates to the capacity requirements. All the alarm systems are compatible with the Drainage S range. The internal pumps are different for each system to meet the requirements of the volumes to be pumped to the drains.

The systems can be fitted internally and externally dependent on the site conditions.
