Surface suction removal by means of a pump, avoiding dry running and prospecting mode operation. The permanently installed pumps frequently break down due to motor damage.
Use of a surface suction unit, type 8-FSP. Suspending the pump from a float meant that the water level could be matched easily. Optimum suction performance was achieved by using the Venturi principle (Operation via bypass). The 8-FSP only works
for a few hours a day, which makes it considerably more efficient than the previous solution.
