The Triton Aqua Pump Pro is specially designed for the removal of ground water from basement cavity drain membrane systems. Comprising polyethylene sump, locking access cover and a powerful submersible pump, the system is very versatile enabling installers to locate inlets to their specifications.
The Triton Aqua Pump Pro Plus is identical to the Aqua Pump Pro system above but is supplied with two mains powered pumps. These can be plumbed to either a single discharge outlet or to two separate outlets from the sump. The second mains pump is located on the raised foot within the chamber and provides back up to the primary pump and additional capacity to the system if required.
The Aqua Pump Pro Battery Back Up system comprises a polyethylene sump, locking access cover, powerful submersible pump, 24v back up pump and control panel. It is designed for use where primary pump failure through mechanical fault of loss of mains power would be catastrophic.
The Triton Aqua Pump XL kit can be specified for where a greater ingress of water is anticipated, where there is a greater depth to the basement or to enable the number of pumps to be reduced.
A lightweight and portable pump solution that is ideal for use on construction sites where a cavity drain system has been installed but the site is not completed. It can also be used in flood situations to pump water away from property to minimise water damage.
The Triton Aqua Pump Kit is a complete, ready to use water control system. The Triton Aqua Pump Kit is located in the floor at the lowest point in the basement and nearest to a suitable point of discharge for the pump. The sump lid is capable of accepting foot traffic and is easily removed for maintenance and servicing access. Full installation guidelines are provided and these should be read carefully before installation.
Triton recommends the use of two pumps in each sump to guard against mechanical failure. The Triton Aqua Pump Plus Kit comes with identical elements to the Triton Aqua Pump Kit with the addition of a second mains powered pump. This provides both back up to the first pump and increased capacity within the sump if required. To maximise capacity of the pumps they should be linked to separate discharge pipes.
Triton Aqua Channel is a PVC drainage conduit designed to control water ingress in below ground situations. It is fitted around the perimeter of the floor at the vulnerable wall/floor junction and is particularly suited for use in conjunction with Isola Platon cavity drain membranes. Water entering the building through the walls is controlled behind the Platon membrane, and diverted down to the Aqua Channel at the base of the wall. The water enters the Aqua Channel through pre-drilled drainage holes and must then be diverted to a suitable drainage point, either natural, or a sump and mechanical pump. As a general rule a minimum of one sump/discharge point is required for every 50 linear metre run of Triton Aqua Channel.
In accordance with BS 8102 (2009), Type C drained protection systems should be maintained. The service period, usually every 6 – 12 months, should be agreed at the outset with the installing contractor or a specialist pump servicing company. Triton can provide details of suitable companies on request.
Triton offers a range of mains and battery powered high level water alarms as well as control and monitoring panels for all configurations of pump kit.
Where two mains powered pumps are located within one sump, the Dual Assist Control Panel will alternate their operation and also activate both pumps simultaneously when required. Supplied complete with integral high level water alarm and monitoring counters for each pump which record the number of activations and run times. This unit is designed for high risk areas of potential water ingress.
This unit has an integral high level audible/visual mains alarm, which is activated by the pump’s float mechanism within the sump. It also records each activation of the pump and length of run time, which is ideal where unknown levels of water ingress occur and also to monitor changes in levels of ingress between service intervals.
The Triton AquaSafe Alarm is a warning system that alerts the end user in the event of a high level situation in the chamber/sump, or when a high level situation has been recorded, a power failure to the AquaSafe Alarm or when there is a service due. There is a battery incorporated within the panel to power the alarm in case of mains power failure. The system is designed to activate via a mini or sump float switch located inside the chamber/sump. It is set to activate higher than the activation point of the primary pump.
The Powersafe Unit is an automatic, battery back up alarm that protects property from flooding by storing power in case of a mains power loss to pumps. The system can be used in single or dual pump configurations and is suitable for both groundwater and foul waste.
