Sanifos® 110 Waste Lifting station

0800 999 6010
Pedrollo SAR 40 Litre
Product Description:

A submersible, 230v “grinder” pump mounted inside a 110 litre polyethylene, storage tank.  Installed below ground, the Sanifos® 110 includes multiple inlet points to “receive” toilet waste and grey water. As the tank fills with inbound waste water, the pump’s float switch rises with the liquid. At a pre-set level, the pump is activated and the tank contents are macerated / pumped away over height and distance to a mains sewer, holding tank or septic tank.

Product Information

Waste pumping stations

A waste pumping station is made up of a two main components:
(1) a large plastic tank (known as an accumulation tank or chamber) into which
(2) a submersible pump (or pumps) is fitted.

Available in a range of volumes / sizes,  the plastic tank acts as the receiver for sewage and/or grey water* from a glamping pod, several glamping pods, a building or even a group of buildings.

The waste pumping station is "sized" according to the projected waste volume your glamping pod / application will create within a certain timescale (usually a 24 hour period), and the distance and height the waste is to be pumped. For the pumping aspect to work, you will need mains electricity and, depending on your application, waste pumping stations are available with one or two pumps and in single or three phase electrical supply versions.

The complete unit is generally installed underground, the top being flush with the ground. Waste from the individual sources (toilet, shower, sink etc.) flows through standard pipework under gravity into the accumulation tank where it will "sit" until it [the waste] reaches a predetermined level. The inbuilt pump incorporates a float switch, the latter rising on the waste as the chamber fills. Once the float switch reaches a certain level, the pump will start up.

There are two pump types in general use:
(1) a grinder pump (which macerates the waste) or
(2) a vortex pump (which churns / spins at a high rate and simply pumps the waste away).

Once in operation, the pump pressurises the sewage and pumps it out of the chamber through appropriate hose or pipework, uphill and/or over distance to a point where it enters the mains sewer or is directed into a separate septic tank / sewage treatment plant or waste holding tank such as our flat tank.

The waste pumping station (depending on the model) has one or several 4" waste inlets (the same size as standard waste pipe from a domestic toilet) into which you direct the waste from your toilet(s). The outlet for the "churned" and pumped waste is via a 50-63mm OD outlet (depending on the model) to which suitable pipe / hose is connected. Finally, for the pumping station to work properly whilst this liquid is flowing (in) and being pumped (out), a breather valve is also required.

Depending on your application, we may advise a macerating pump or a vortex pump.

On a technical level, when selecting any Sanifos unit, one should consider several factors, including; distance to be pumped; height/head; pipe width (always use correct diameter pipework); pressure; pipe bends; the required flow rate and possible friction losses within the pipework

*Please note: when collecting the waste from kitchen sinks where fats and cooking oils may be "introduced" into the waste water, we strongly recommend the installation of a grease trap underneath the sink / between sink and waste pumping station. Whereas fats and greases will readily flow into the tank in their warm or hot liquid states, once these liquids cool when they come into contact with the toilet waste inside the tank they may congeal as fat "bergs." This is certainly to be avoided as the operation of the pump(s) will be adversely affected.

How do we (generally) deal with sewage?

WHEN MIGHT YOU USE WASTE LIFTING STATIONS?

In general, a sewage system is comprised of a network of pipes that carry sewage and grey water from a home or business to the mains sewer. We flush the toilet at home, and the waste disappears: out of sight, out of mind.

Typically, this network of pipes relies on gravity for the waste to flow into the mains sewer. It may also be directed into a septic tank, sewage treatment plant or above ground waste capture tank, such as our Flat Tank. In the home and work environments, most of us are accustomed to flushing the toilet and the waste "magically" disappears. It's not quite that simple, of course, but it's a sign that the underground infrastructure is already in place to deal with it: from house, to mains sewer to sewage treatment works or septic tank.

However, for every "standard" situation where the waste is directed straight into the mains sewer, there are many applications where a mains sewer is not available - or it may be above where you're creating the waste - and you will need to find an alternative solution.

And that is where sewage and waste pumping stations come in.

When to use a waste lifting station?

Where your glamping pod is low to the ground and a "slide under" waste collection tank is not an option
In low-lying areas where the mains sewer or waste collection tank sits on higher ground than your glamping pod / house
Where you need to pump the waste a short distance to a separate waste collection tank, which is accessible for a liquid waste contractor
Where you have several glamping pods in fairly close proximity and wish to consolidate the waste handling with one piece of equipment
Where planning permission is not available owing to ground conditions (SSSI, ground water level, tree roots etc.)
When the cost of groundworks to put in pipework to allow the waste to flow by gravity is prohibitively expensive
When you wish to pump waste over water - e.g. from floating glamping pod to shore

Why choose this product?

Designed for drainage of a single dwelling incorporating WC, bathroom, Kitchen, utility room
Grinder pump uses robust cutting blades to prevent clogging
Vortex pump (not available on Sanifos 110) uses an impeller to churn waste and pump away
110 litre storage tank
Powerful automatic motor with quiet operation
Easy handling for installation below ground level
Maximum recommended pumping height is 11 metres

Technical Aspects - pros and cons

Pro: a convenient way to manage waste on glamping sites, which, by their very nature, tend NOT to be near a mains sewer
Pro: relatively diminutive in size and groundworks requirement compared with a septic tank or sewage treatment plant
Pro: removable lid for easy access to pump(s) for maintenance purposes
Pro: may offer a more cost-effective route to get your glamping site to market
Pro: some models can be fitted with alarms / monitoring systems to keep operators in control
Pro: automatic operation requires no human intervention - health problems minimised
Pro: a size and model to suit most glamping applications
Pro: sourced from market-leading brand names
Consider: expert installation via plumber (for example) to ensure equipment is commissioned correctly
Consider: providing the correct electrical installation. Consult an electrician to check that your power supply is not overloaded.
Consider: grease traps to prevent the build up of fat bergs within the pumping station
Consider: warning signs to warn users against putting inappropriate items down their toilets

Where do you direct your pumped waste ?

WASTE RECEIVER

Waste pumped from a waste pumping station can be directed into several "receivers"

Pump waste from several shepherd's hut / glamping pods a short distance to one central waste holding tank, either above or below ground, which your preferred wet waste haulage contractor can then empty
Pump waste to a mains sewer - note: seek appropriate permissions
Pump waste to a septic tank or sewage treatment plant - note: seek appropriate permissions / check that the receiver can cope with the extra volume
