Below are the detailed steps for installing this system in a typical basement setting:

 

Pre-Installation Checklist:

  1. Safety First: Ensure all necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn throughout the installation process.

  2. Tools and Materials: Gather all required tools and materials, including a saw, solvent weld adhesive, a hole saw, and any additional fittings specific to your installation.

  3. Site Preparation: Clear the area where the sump station will be installed, ensuring it is free from debris and water.

 

Step 1: Selecting the Installation Site:

  1. Identify the Lowest Point: Choose a location in the basement where water naturally collects, as this will be the most effective position for the sump station.

  2. Accessibility: Ensure the site is accessible for maintenance and inspection.

 

Step 2: Preparing the Chamber Site:

  1. Excavation: Dig a hole in the basement floor, slightly larger than the chamber’s dimensions (60cm tall x 55cm diameter). The depth should allow the chamber to sit with its lid flush with or slightly below the basement floor level.

  2. Base Preparation: Lay a bed of concrete or compacted gravel at the bottom of the hole to provide a stable base for the chamber.

 

Step 3: Assembling the Sump Station:

  1. Pump Installation: Place the KSB 301 Amadrainer pump inside the chamber. Ensure the pump is positioned so that the outlet aligns with where the discharge pipe will be installed.

  2. Internal Pipework: Connect the provided internal pipework, including the non-return valve, 90-degree elbow, plain union, 1.25” tank connector, and 32mm solvent weld waste adaptor. Use solvent weld adhesive for a secure fit.

  3. PVC Pipe Cutting: Measure and cut the 32mm 16bar PVC pipe to the required length, allowing it to reach the discharge point outside the basement.

 

Step 4: Chamber Installation:

  1. Positioning the Chamber: Lower the assembled chamber into the prepared hole. Ensure it is level and stable.

  2. Backfilling: Backfill around the chamber with concrete or a mix of sand and gravel, ensuring there are no voids or loose areas.

 

Step 5: Discharge Pipe Installation:

  1. Drilling the Discharge Hole: Use a hole saw to drill through the basement wall at the appropriate height for the discharge pipe.

  2. Fitting the Tank Connector: Install the tank connector to the chamber wall, ensuring a watertight seal.

  3. Connecting the Discharge Pipe: Connect the PVC discharge pipe to the tank connector and run it through the hole in the basement wall to the outside. Ensure the pipe has a downward slope away from the building to aid water flow.

 

Step 6: Final Connections and Testing:

  1. Electrical Connection: Connect the pump to a suitable power source. If required, fit a UK plug to replace the European plug supplied with the pump. Ensure that all electrical connections comply with local regulations and are carried out by a qualified electrician.

  2. Testing: Fill the chamber with water to test the pump’s automatic activation and check all connections for leaks.

  3. Lid Installation: Once testing is complete and the system is functioning as expected, secure the Clarke Drain HDPE frame and lid to the chamber.

 

Post-Installation:

  1. Documentation: Keep all manuals and documentation in a safe place for future reference

  2. Maintenance: Regularly inspect the system and perform maintenance as recommended by the manufacturer to ensure long-term reliability and efficiency.

A) The Platinum AquaSump ECO, equipped with the KSB 301 Amadrainer Automatic Pump, is designed to manage significant volumes of effluent water efficiently. The system’s maximum chamber volume of 110 Litres and the pump’s capacity to handle flow rates up to 2.75 litres per second allow it to cope with rapid inflows of water, such as during heavy rainfall or flooding events. The pump’s automatic activation and adjustable level control ensure that water is pumped out promptly, preventing overflow and maintaining effective water management even under challenging conditions.

 

Q) What considerations should be taken when choosing an installation site within a basement?

A) Choosing the right installation site within a basement for the Platinum AquaSump ECO is crucial for its effectiveness. The site should be at the lowest point in the basement where water naturally collects, ensuring that the system can capture and manage water ingress efficiently. Accessibility for maintenance and inspection is also important, allowing for easy access to the chamber, pump, and internal components. Additionally, consider the location of the discharge pipe and ensure that there is a clear path for water to be pumped out of the basement. Taking these factors into account will help maximise the system’s performance and reliability.

 

Q) How does the triple shaft seal enhance the system’s reliability?

A) The triple shaft seal in the KSB 301 Amadrainer Automatic Pump is a critical feature that enhances the system’s reliability by providing superior protection against leaks and preventing water from entering the motor housing. This seal system includes three separate sealing mechanisms, each designed to offer an additional layer of protection. The seals are lubricated by barrier fluid, ensuring smooth operation and reducing wear over time. This arrangement not only protects the motor from water damage but also ensures that the pump can operate efficiently, even under challenging conditions, such as when managing water containing solids. The triple shaft seal’s durability and protective capabilities significantly contribute to the pump’s high operational reliability and extended service life.

 

Q) What is the purpose of the swing check valve?

A) The swing check valve, specifically the quiet operation EDPM model included with the Platinum AquaSump ECO, serves a crucial role in preventing backflow of water into the chamber and basement. This valve automatically opens to allow water to be pumped out through the discharge pipe and closes when the pump stops, preventing water from flowing back into the chamber. Its design ensures a smooth, quiet operation, reducing noise and enhancing the system’s efficiency. This valve is essential for maintaining the effectiveness of the water management system, ensuring that once water is pumped out, it does not re-enter the basement, thereby protecting the property from water damage.

 

Q) How do the system’s compliance with various standards benefit the user?

A) The Platinum AquaSump ECO’s compliance with various standards, including EN1452-2/3, ISO161/1, BS21, DIN2999, and ISO7, benefits the user by ensuring the system’s quality, durability, and reliability. These standards govern the materials, design, and manufacturing processes of the system’s components, ensuring they meet high-quality benchmarks. For the user, this means peace of mind knowing that the system is built to last and perform effectively, reducing the likelihood of failures and the need for frequent maintenance. Compliance with these standards also signifies that the sump station is suitable for a wide range of applications, providing versatility and efficiency in water management.

 

Q) Are there any limitations to the Platinum AquaSump ECO’s performance?

A) While the Platinum AquaSump ECO is designed for high efficiency and reliability in managing effluent water and preventing flooding, there are limitations to its performance that users should be aware of. The system is optimized to handle water containing solids up to 10mm in size; larger solids may cause blockages or impair the pump’s performance. The pump’s IP 68 rating allows for immersion up to 2m, so deeper water levels may exceed the system’s operational capacity. Additionally, the system’s maximum temperature tolerance is 50°C; environments exceeding this temperature could affect its functionality. Understanding these limitations ensures that the system is used within its operational parameters, maintaining its efficiency and extending its service life.
