Things to Consider When Choosing a Sump Pit
When choosing a sump or electrical pit, there are a number of factors to consider, namely:
What is the sump pit being used for?
Obviously, the requirements for a sump pit vastly differ depending on how it is being used. Is it being used for storm water drainage or grey water filtration? Or, is it a housing for electrical and communications access? Collect water, or keep it out? To begin with, this will determine the type of sump pit cover that you require.
Volume and dimensions
What is the sump pit housing? Or, how much water is it going to have to deal with?
Environment and conditions?
What environment is the sump pit in – indoor or outdoor? If outdoor, what are the conditions it will be exposed to, heavy rains, baking sun? Is the sump grate going to be exposed to chemicals?
Will the sump pit cover be walked or driven over? And, if so, how much? Load bearing and non-slip capacities will need to be considered.
Why Choose Stainless Steel Sump Pit Grates and Covers?
Stainless steel is the great all-rounder when it come to sump pit covers. Whether it is a solid covering or grate that you require, steel sump pit covers have a lot to offer for backyards and factories alike!
Unlike some other metal sump pit covers, stainless steel offers a durable and long lasting, corrosion resistant and easy to maintain medium. Stainless steel sump pit covers have great strength to weight ratio, while being aesthetically pleasing. This means our stainless steel sump pit covers can be used just about anywhere!
Finally, our sump covers are non-slip, making them the ideal solution for workplaces and public settings.
