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.
The Triton Aqua Pump Kit comprises a pre-formed sump basin, a single mains powered 230V submersible pump, internal 40mm plumbing to sump, including a non-return valve, and a battery powered, high water level alarm.

- Quick and easy to install
- Standard 40mm discharge pipes
- Pump capacity 195 litres/minute at 1m head
- Independent fused spur required for each set of wiring
IMPORTANT NOTE: The Triton Aqua Pump must only be used for pumping ground water. The pump should not be used to pump grey water from; sinks/washing machines/dishwashers/condensing boilers or effluent.
The Sump Basin is a polyethylene pre-formed chamber, measuring 560mm high x 540mm diameter (top) x 460mm diameter (base) and is most commonly located into the floor, finishing flush with the surrounding floor level. The Sump Basin is supplied with a structural foam flat lid, which can accept foot traffic. The lid can be easily removed to allow regular maintenance of the internal submersible pump or pumps.
The pump is positioned within the Sump Basin and is controlled by an automatic snap-action float switch. As the water level increases within the sump the float rises and when the pre-set switch level is reached the pump will automatically operate and discharge the water. The Pump is 230v and requires wiring into an independent fused spur outlet within 1.5m of the

NON-RETURN VALVE ASSEMBLY
To avoid any discharged water backing-up into the sump basin, a non-return valve assembly is provided. This is fitted directly to the submersible pump outlet via flexible couplings and supplied ready to accept a standard 1½” waste pipe.
HIGH WATER LEVEL ALARM
The High Water Level Alarm is an essential component within the Aqua Pump system. In the event of mechanical failure of the pump or an unexpected power failure, the water will continue to fill the sump. When the water reaches the level of the alarm float switch, the 80db alarm will sound, giving warning of the failure. The alarm is powered by a 9v battery, which should be positioned in a convenient location such as a kitchen/lounge where it will be easily heard. Once the alarm is heard immediate action must be taken to avoid flooding. Additionally, a 12v battery operated pump can be installed offering peace of mind to the client, while investigations are made into the failure.
