1500ID PIT

The Choice Wastewater Pump Station for a Lower Life Cycle Cost

Australian Tanks Offer Precast Concrete Pump Stations That Offer Peace-of-Mind Installation.

The Australian Tanks 1500mm ID pit is the ideal solution for small grinder pumps through to significant wastewater pumps. Any pump arranged in a dual guide rail mounted set-up serviced by a 900×900 clear opening in the lid should be suitable for the Australian Tanks 1500mm ID pit (Pump manufacturers can confirm suitability).

Maintenance costs over the total life of a pump station can be costly, and run second behind electricity costs. For this reason, it is imperative that just as a pump is selected as close to its best efficiency point, a tank is selected that provides a hydrodynamic efficient pump well.

Problem pump stations are expensive for owners. Callouts for blockages, fouled level control equipment, or frequent requirement for sucker trucks to remove sedimentation can be greatly reduced with the use of a correctly sized wet well – potentially saving end users 1000’s of dollars annually.

Why choose Australian Tanks?

Our solutions are designed for small, medium, or large capacities and compete extremely favourably with alternative precast or built-on-site systems. Additionally, the lifecycle costs measure extremely well against alternatives as they are very easy to access, clean and maintain.

Every Australian Tanks system is delivered with weir walls, filtration, penetrations, trash screens, ladders, risers, manholes, drainage holes and orifice plates in place, ready for immediate install in the prepared site excavation. Importantly, all systems are pre-cured with no further waterproofing required. Installation takes place in hours, not weeks, to be connected and backfilled within the same day.

We provide tanks that are made to Australian Standards to allow for restricted heavy vehicle access based:

  • Heavy duty construction rated for where the heaviest vehicle traffic will be a 4 axle twin steer truck eg. garbage truck.
  • Un-restricted traffic loading in accordance with AS5100 can be provided with further engineering for your needs.

Our range of tanks are easily interconnected in multiples to create any volume quickly and cost effectively. Every system is certifiable, with increasing numbers of engineers incorporating our systems into their designs due to the structural integrity and multiple efficiencies of our service.

Our products are easily modified to fit the volume required on your project. Along with other on-site parameters we can create the ideal custom solution for you and your team.

better hydrodynamic area around the pumps

A tight diameter allows for a much better hydrodynamic area around the pumps, allowing;

A correctly sized wet well can significantly reduce the total life cycle cost for a client.

The 1500mm ID pit rings are joined in our factory, or on site with a water tight three-stage sealing protocol. The seal prevents water ingress, saving the pumps from running unnecessarily, thus saving power consumption.

Package Pump Stations Design and Ratings

All Australian Tanks tanks and pump stations are anti-floatation by design. Once backfilled they can be installed in 100% saturation and will instil nil hydrostatic uplift to the slab above.
For installations where the water table can be above the height of the tank, such as a basement installation, tidal or flood prone locations, some of our tanks can have in excess 3.0m water cover and still resist the hydrostatic uplift, providing nil buoyancy. Once the tank is selected to be suitable for the water table, no estimation is required by installers for the ballasting required, and no separate project management of concrete trucks, or water trucks is required.

Due to the high compressive strength and durability requirements necessary for heavy duty construction, Australian Tanks uses 50Mpa strength concrete in all products manufactured.

Australian Tanks products are rated with a B2 classification, in accordance with Australian Standards AS3735 (Concrete Structures for retaining liquids).

All pump wells can be coated externally if there are acidic soils. Sewer or Trade Waste pump stations can be epoxy coated. As a standard, Australian Tanks epoxy coat with Megapoxy MC, as per our council approved grease traps. Alternatively, we can coat the wet well with other engineer specified products such as; Nitocote (Internal), Oxydur (External), Polyurea, Crystaflex, Carboguard, and Phenolic.

Australian Tanks are regularly requested to replace tanks,pump stations and civil products that have been driven over and damaged.
Many times these products have been installed in non-trafficable areas, such as parks and school ovals, but have been inadvertently driven over, only to find the tank has been unable to bear weight with the resulting damage requiring new tank installation.
To avoid these damaging risks all Australian Tanks products are manufactured as Heavy Duty and rated for where the heaviest vehicle traffic will be a 4 axle twin steer truck (Max GVM 27.5t). Example: Garbage Truck.

Platinum Hydraulic Design
The professional manner in which Australian Tanks approached this project resulted with the successful installation of several large capacity grease interceptor traps that are fully compliant with the City of Gold Coast Trade Waste Department requirements. Congratulations to Les Green and Team for the professionalism, and a quality product.
Aaron Glowka
Project Manager
The service from the team is outstanding, they’re always available to help. They’ll do whatever they can including come out and work you to get it right. The different volume tanks are brilliant! Standard sizing that you can adjust the volume makes it uniform when working across different jobs. Consistency in area for planning also helps to save time and money in the long run!
