The first fix involves the installation of the pipework, valves and earth bonding. Unless the valve chamber drain is required to be cast in the compound, we will also install the valve chamber drain.
Following on from the installation of the pipework, the following tasks would need to be completed:
- Installation of permanent pipework supports, benching of all the chambers in line with SFA.
- Making good the surrounding ground and construction of the compound.
- Installation of any ancillary items, such as ladders.
- Construction of the kiosk plinth and installation of the kiosk and any intermediate kiosks /draw pits.
It is vital that you ensure benching is completed prior to the system being live. This will help prevent blockages and ensure smoother operation of the pumps. If it is not done at this stage, then problems will occur at the adoption stage, where the ground worker may not necessarily be on site to bench the system.
Once complete, we will begin the second fix. This involves installation of the pumps and control equipment, pulling through the cables and commissioning of the system. If a permanent power supply is unavailable, then a return visit will be required to commission the system.
Depending on the water authority, we can organise the telemetry at the developer’s cost. This would then be installed and setup.
