Three dewatering pumps, all of different sizes, were installed into underground tanks to allow rain water from the site to be stored then pumped away. This was a large site and with unpredictable summer rains experienced in Brisbane, the flows into the tanks varied greatly. The site remained dry over the construction period. The dewatering pumps will stay in place to prevent any future flooding.

We recently installed 2 x 11kw storm water pumps with a duty of 30 lps each, soft starters on each pump to avoid water hammer and a water level sensor for accurate pump starting. The original pump system had always caused water hammer and was unreliable due to tangling floats in a very turbulent underground water tank. We designed, installed and commissioned the pump system.
