Why you probably need a settlement tank with your hire pump

Settlement tanks are increasingly becoming a necessity on many sites where environmental considerations need to be taken. They offer a degree of protection, ensuring that oil, silts and fines are not discharged back in the watercourse.

The Environment Agency’s Pollution Prevention Guidelines PPG6 states that:

Surface waters and groundwater have legal protection. It is an offence to pollute them.

Silt and oil are the most common construction site pollutants to water. Your site doesn’t need to be next to a river to cause a problem; any pollutants getting into drains can end up in a river even if it’s miles away from site, and can be traced back to their source. Drainage systems, including land drains, act as unseen pathways. If your site is near surface waters or drainage connection leading to surface waters, you’ll need to take extra care to manage your site activities to reduce the risk of pollution.

A settlement tank typically has a number of internal baffle plates or wiers which reduce the flow velocity allowing suspended particles to settle out. Since oil floats on water the baffles can be constructed in such a way that the water flows under the plate, leaving the oil trapped behind the first baffle.

The illustration below shows the flow of water through the settlement tank – entering at the top, the water then flow under the first baffle, leaving any oil floating on top and trapped in this first section, then flows over a v-notch in the second baffle before being discharged.

Maris Pumps offer a range of settlement tanks for hire.

Rapid Response Pump Hire for the Environment Agency


Blithfield Reservoir in Staffordshire recently played host to a training day held by the Environment Agency in order to measure emergency response times to aid in future flood alleviation plans.

Maris Pumps Ltd, partnered with the Environment Agency,  received an emergency call to mobilise pumping equipment including a 12” high flow pump and associated pipework to the reservoir and quickly deployed 2 HGV’s to the site.

Upon arrival, and after performing risk assessments and following appropriate health and safety procedures, Maris Pumps’ engineers swiftly set up the 12” high flow Pegson VS200HF in a prime position whilst being timed by Environment Agency staff. To mitigate against any potential environmental contamination, the pump was setup with a drip tray and emergency spill kits were on hand.


Felix Chigama, FCRM Advisor at the Environment Agency, commented on the quick response, efficient setup and environmental awareness of service provided Maris Pumps and on the overall success of the training day.

Why You Need a Road Ramp with Your Next Pump Hire

Road RampDuring routine utilities maintenance, it is sometimes necessary to pump water across a road. This normally involves removal of the road surface in order to lay a temporary hose, and reinstatement of the road surface upon works completion. Not only is this a costly process, but disruption to the flow of traffic is unavoidable.

To eliminate this unnecessary cost, Maris Pumps Ltd has developed the Road Ramp, a unique, patented pipe ramp which allows water to be pumped across a road whilst maintaining traffic flow and rendering the job of digging up the road completely redundant. Simply connect the Road Ramp in-line with your hose using the integrated Bauer couplings, and start the pump.

Key to the Road Ramp‘s strength and durability is its triangular profile. The flat centre-section of traditional pipe ramp road crossings (which have a tendency to collapse under use causing leaks) has been removed at the design stage. In fact, we’ve load-tested the Road Ramp up to 70 tonnes – more than enough for a fully laden fire engine or articulated lorry.

Our unique, registered design means we’re the only company able to offer a road crossing ramp with a low apex height of just 75 mm – that’s 25% less than the maximum permitted height for a speed bump!

Road Ramp

The flat, low design of the ramp enables traffic to pass virtually undisrupted (without the risk of bottoming-out) while you pump up to 550 m³/hour through the free-flowing hose section. The design also eliminates the need for a box junction, ensuring that the Road Ramp doesn’t “rag up” even on heavy sewage jobs.

It is fitted with 6″ Bauer compatible couplings as standard and has lifting eyes for easy on-site handling.

The Road Ramp saves time, money and effort, allowing you to get your work completed quicker.
