|Eliminating confined space working for maintenance of septic tank pump
Sandoft wanted to eliminate the need for an operator to enter a septic tank at six monthly intervals to service and if necessary replace a pump. In addition to confined space working there was the added potential hazard of methane being present.
After reviewing a number of options, they installed a duck foot and slide system on rails that could be winched out on chains clear of the confined space. The pump and its electrical connections could be worked on at ground level before lowering it back into place.
• No confined space working
• Regular maintenance easier and more safely performed
