Make Money & Save the Environment Together!


Where a site cabin cannot be positioned near a gravity drain, wastewater is conventionally stored in a small tank underneath the cabin and regularly emptied by a sewage disposal contractor. However, the relatively small capacity of the tank means it often must be emptied weekly. While this method is widely used in construction, it is costly and inefficient.

For site managers, it incurs high wastewater removal costs and frequent interruptions to operations during the collection process.

For sewage disposal contractors it is an inefficient use of resources and manpower – while an average round trip to empty and dispose of site cabin wastewater is 20 miles, the site tank will only use about one-quarter of a small tanker capacity.

What are the alternatives?

· Pumping to a gravity drain

CABINPUMP is a purpose-built macerating system for construction site cabin wastewater disposal. Designed and manufactured in the UK, this innovative system is easily fitted to a standard portable site cabin and can pump effluent over a distance of up to 600 metres to a gravity drain.

This is the perfect solution for construction sites, as there are no disposal costs and no interruptions.

· Pumping to a large-capacity aboveground storage tank

If there isn’t a conveniently located gravity drain, CABINPUMP can pump effluent to an aboveground storage tank with a larger capacity than conventional site cabin wastewater tanks. The aboveground tank can be placed in a location where emptying can be carried out away from the main site and at less frequent intervals.

For site managers, this means disposal costs are reduced and work isn’t interrupted. Sewage disposal contractors also benefit as less frequent site visits mean collection schedules are lighter, operational costs are reduced and vehicles and drivers are available for other contracts.

CABINPUMP and the environment

CABINPUMP is also an environmentally-friendly alternative, particularly where wastewater can be pumped directly to the main sewage system. But even if an intermediate storage tank must be used, lower vehicle fuel usage and emissions per collection mean a reduced carbon footprint.
