Wet wipes. Throughout the pandemic, they’ve been invaluable – helping us to clean touchable surfaces, disinfect door handles and sanitise our hands. But there’s just one problem. People are incorrectly flushing them down the toilet and, as a result, they’re wreaking havoc on the UK sewage system.
Concerned about installing a sewage pumping station? It turns out, you’re not the only one.
Unfortunately, there’s a lot of misinformation online. And as a result, many people – particularly homeowners and landlords – are wary about using them in their property. But let’s get one thing straight; packaged sewage pumping stations are a highly effective way to drain sewage (when gravity cannot be relied upon) and a great option for both commercial and domestic projects.
Due to extreme weather, they’re becoming increasingly common in the UK. And in the aftermath of another storm – Storm Christoph – thousands of properties have once again been devasted. Continue reading “Flooded House – How to Deal with it Right Now”
A garden mancave.
It probably isn’t something you’ve considered before. But this year, due to the pandemic, our priorities have changed. The instruction to ‘stay at home’ may be simple. But it’s taken a huge toll on our lives and mental wellbeing. And as a result, many homeowners (just like you) are looking to create a positive environment at home – dedicated solely to fun, relaxation and hobbies.
Investing in a garden building for your home?
You’re not the only one. Over the last few years, more and more homeowners have taken a ‘don’t move, improve’ approach – modifying their home to meet their changing needs and using the garden as an extension of their indoor space. And the pandemic has certainly added to this trend.
Thinking of a basement conversion?
It’s a good idea. Due to the pandemic, we’ve spent more time at home this year than ever before – and for lots of people, it’s made them reassess their space and realise it doesn’t work for them anymore. Perhaps you need a new play area for the kids? Or an office to ‘work from home’?
This is a question we’re getting asked quite a lot recently, here at JT Pumps.
It’s easy to understand why. Working from home is said to be the lasting legacy of the pandemic. Over the last few months, bosses have been impressed by how successful remote working can be. And, as a result, it’s set to become the ‘new norm’ and many people are looking to build a garden office.
Due to COVID-19, staycations are set to be more popular than ever before. Lots of people are still anxious about flying abroad and many are ditching their foreign holidays in favour of a UK break. So, if you own a holiday let, now is the perfect time to act and get it ready for the surge in bookings.
Worried about flooding in the UK? You’re certainly not alone.
Extreme weather conditions have become a common issue across the country. In fact, thanks to excessive levels of rainfall, February 2020 was deemed the wettest month since records began in 1766 – with devastating effects for many parts of Northern England, the Midlands and Wales.
Think something may have gone wrong with your pumping station?
It’s certainly possible. Although designed to be robust and long-lasting, issues can (and do!) arise – particularly if the system hasn’t been serviced or cared for correctly. Some sewage pumping station problems are worse than others, and as such, warrant a call to our professionals sooner rather than later.
