This photo was taken when I worked for my last employer. I was called out at 3.00 am to get this pump and associated pipework ready to install on a Saturday morning. When on call you have to try to work out what the Customer wants and provide a solution with quite often little or no info. You get the equipment together in the yard. This means modifying the pump to their specific requirements i.e. in this case an impeller change, adding a stand and adding a 4" discharge with a 6" inlet and then you have to load the pump, 6"hoses, 4" hoses and associated fittings onto your truck. You then go to site, install and commission the installation with help from the Customer, but ultimately the installation is down to you. It's a great experience because it gives you a great sense of achievement and you come home smelling of roses...not! Oh by the by we often get soaked/covered in sewage or liquor which is a nice way of saying solids i.e. sh*t
The Crossness Pumping Station
The Crossness Pumping Station
The Crossness Pumping Station was built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette as part of Victorian London's urgently needed main drainage scheme. It was officially opened by the Prince of Wales in April 1865. The Beam Engine House is a Grade 1 Listed building in a Victorian Romanesque style, which features some spectacular ornamental ironwork. It still contains the four original pumping engines. The installation was taken out of service in the 1920's, although one of the engines was run in 1953, when there was a risk of flooding nearby. Between the 1950's and 1985 the engine house was systematically vandalised which has greatly impeded the progress of the restoration of the engines. The Crossness Engines Trust, a registered charity, was set up in 1987 to restore the installation which represents a unique part of Britain's industrial heritage and an outstanding example of Victorian engineering
