One of the biggest growth areas for structural waterproofing has been the Type C waterproofing sector using cavity drain membrane systems. These normally rely on a pump unless there is natural gravity drainage to the property.
Pumps need to be fool proof in design and maintenance, and over the years improvements in design has led to the systems we now use.
Twin pump systems are now standard with a specialist battery back up and alarm.
Care must be taken to ensure that the correct system is installed at retrofit stage. It is important that pumps have the capacity to deal with either the ground or foul water entering the property.
Wykamol have just updated their new pump drainage brochure with all the relevant products available in this sector, as well as the correct pump capacity and associated systems.
Now contractors and specifiers alike can decide on which system would be best suited to the property they are dealing with, from the new Sump pro pump system with extended neck which can be cut down to suit floor levels to the foul pumping stations in the range for domestic and commercial spaces
Key to all these pumps is to make sure that power is constant, enabling these systems to work. In the brochure we cover this with a range of battery back up systems to suit all types of pumps.
From 30 minutes continual pumping to over 4 hours we have the solution to suit your needs.
Also, the correct pipework kits are crucial to ensure that the water or foul can be taken away under pressure to drain away at a higher level.
