Alton Pump Services called in to rectify pump chamber installation issue.
The team were called to a site where a pumping station servicing over 200 homes was experiencing issues. The previous contractor had not laid a solid base for the tank which was resulting in the chamber rising. On inspection our team found that it was only the weight of the water that had been holding the chamber down. As the base rose the guide rails bent under the pressure.
Due to the dangers present our engineers turned off the pump chamber and installed two temporary pumps at high level to stop the drains overflowing.
We then removed all the pipework and installed a concrete base to stabilise the chamber.
