Pumped drainage systems are a type of plumbing system that relies on pumps to move wastewater and other fluids away from a property. These systems are often used in areas where the natural slope of the land is not sufficient to allow gravity to drain the wastewater away.
There are several types of pumps that can be used in pumped drainage systems, including centrifugal pumps, submersible pumps, and vortex pumps. Centrifugal pumps use blades or impellers to push the wastewater through a pipe, while submersible pumps are designed to be fully submerged in the wastewater and use a motor to drive the pump. Vortex pumps use a spinning motion to create a vortex that helps to lift the wastewater and move it through the pipe.
Pumped drainage systems typically consist of a series of pipes that are connected to a series of pumps. The pumps are responsible for moving the wastewater through the pipes and away from the property. In most cases, the pumps are installed in a sump pit, which is a pit that is dug beneath the floor of the property. The sump pit is designed to collect the wastewater and allow the pump to access it easily.
One of the main advantages of pumped drainage systems is that they can be used to move wastewater over long distances. This makes them a good option for properties that are located on hills or in other areas where the natural slope of the land is not sufficient to drain the wastewater away.
