Wastewater prefabricated pumping stations

Grundfos offers a full range of wastewater pumping stations – also known as lift stations – which are supplied complete with all the necessary piping, valves, level controls etc.

General Details


Grundfos’ wastewater pumping stations

Wastewater pumping stations use a modular concept, while the pump pit, pumps and controls can be combined to suit specific requirements for each individual application.


Pumping stations are made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE) or glass-fibre reinforced plastic (GRP). All pre-installed piping is either made of PE or stainless steel. As standard, we supply the pumping stations with a fibreglass, aluminium or PE top cover. However, we can also supply a heavy traffic cover made of concrete/cast iron.

Design your own pumping station

Pumping stations are built to handle effluent, drainage and sewage from domestic, commercial, municipal and industrial buildings as well as surface water from highways and roads. Generally, pumping stations are used in two main types of sewer systems: pressurised sewer systems and gravitational sewer systems.

With a prefabricated pumping station you can create a pumping station designed to your exact needs in the Pumping Station Creator tool https://app.grundfos.com/pust/frontpage. The result is a fully documented, CE-marked solution, with all the components designed for perfect compatibility. The CE marking and all relevant EU standards cover the entire pumping station.

Applications depend on the pump selected, and include:

  • Drainage
  • Effluent/rainwater/surface water
  • Wastewater transport
