Submarine™ Sump System
When it is known or anticipated that free water will be present behind the Oldroyd Xv membrane, the installation design should incorporate adequate provision for its disposal. This will normally require the installation of one or more sump pumps.
The Safeguard Submarine sump system has been designed and developed specifically for use in conjunction with cavity drainage membrane systems in basement waterproofing applications. It was developed by Safeguard in conjunction with pumping solutions specialists, TT Pumps.
The standard system comprises of a specially designed sump chamber complete with double-sealed manhole cover, 240V Goliath sump pump, 12V battery back-up pump, and a high-level alarm incorporating a single float switch. Versions are also available with higher capacity pumps. Benefits include:
The pump chamber is well engineered and manufactured in strong, impact-resistant polyethylene. Double-seal access cover suitable for pedestrian loading.
Simple to install
Pre-formed inlet/outlet holes to directly connect drainage channel and discharge pipe. Pump can easily be disconnected for cleaning and maintenance.
High Flow Rate
50 mm diameter internal pipework allows maximum flow rate from pump. 160 litre per minute flow rate (based on 2 meter head of water).
Smooth internal walls aid the hygienic disposal of groundwater for the avoidance of smells and septicity.
Extra large 100-litre capacity chamber.
The Submarine Sump System comes complete with pipework pre-assembled in the sump chamber, ready for installation into the ground. Full installation instructions are available on request.
We strongly recommend that the sump pump is regularly serviced under a suitable service agreement.
