Whether you are wellpointing, setting up a sewer bypass, assisting with flood control, or providing general dewatering, BBA Pumps can support all of your portable pumping needs.
Well Point Pumps
During a construction site dewatering it is key to have the best well point pump for controlling the groundwater table. The PT series wellpoint and sock dewatering pumps are the best choice around for ensuring a dry construction pit. These pumps are typically supplied diesel driven and with a sound attenuated canopy.

The perfect choice
Impressive suction lift with a vacuum up to 32 feet
Very low maintenance thanks toservice intervals of up to 1500 hours
Extended working lifethe PT pump will still be going strong decades after purchase
How a well point dewatering pump works
The PT well point pumps are positive displacement pumps and fully self-priming. They can cope with any combination of air and water, with no need for a separate priming system. As soon as the pump is attached to a well point dewatering system, you just need to start the engine and you can head off home. The pump produces a vacuum via the header pipe and starts to reduce the groundwater level. Watch the Dutch dewatering video to discover for yourself the lowest cost method for creating a perfectly dry construction pit.
Groundwater control through sock dewatering
Here a long drainage pipe is dug horizontally into the ground. BBA Pumps products drive the operation above ground. From flow meters, non-return valves, weir tanks to pipelines and of course the PT sock dewatering pumps.
In order to remove large volumes of water during times of flooding you need the help of a high flow flood control pump. Being able to respond quickly during heavy rainfall, a storm water pump on a trailer will work well. In such challenging circumstances you can always rely on the engine driven flood and storm water pumps from the BA series.
Benefits for you
Easy handling thanks to the compact design and lightweight mobile units
High volume pumping with maximum flows to 34,000 US GPM
Fast priming and re-priming due to the inbuilt vacuum assisted system
No noise due to the BBA Pumps sound attenuated canopy
The BA series mobile high head pumping systems – with pressures of up to 670 feet (290 psi) – are vacuum assisted and can be delivered with either a diesel engine or an electric motor. These pumps are typically deployed in high pressure applications.
Dredging and Construction
We have a wealth of experience in the supply of diesel driven jet water pumps for the deep excavation of wet construction pits. This dredging technology is used in tunneling projects or during the construction of underground parking garages. Case study underwater excavation »
Quarry and Mine Dewatering
To best serve the needs of the mining market segment where a complete skid and/or canopy is unnecessary, BBA Pumps supplies a bolt-on pump package. These units include the BA pump as specified by you and fitted to a diesel engine with the priming system included.
Fire Fighting and Emergency
Mobile high pressure pumps are critically important for disaster relief, both on and offshore. One of the most important projects in the history of BBA Pumps was the supply of nine fire fighting pumps to a European nuclear power plant. The mobile pumps were delivered completely customized and with no less than 132 certificates for each pump.

Sewer Bypass Pumps
When making repairs to a sewer line, wastewater is handled by sewer bypass pumps. Having a reliable and trusted temporary pump installation is of real importance during bypass projects. In such cases you are in safe hands with a BA series diesel driven dry prime pump. Our sewage (trash) pumps are sound attenuated or skid mounted and can also be supplied on pump trailers.
Low energy costs thanks to the pumps efficiency and automatic start-stop function
Minimal clogging due to the large solids handling and self-cleaning wear plate
Silent operation thanks to the BBA Pumps sound attenuated canopy
Quick priming and re-primingvia the built-in vacuum assisted system
How does a BA sewer bypass pump work?
The engine driven sewage pumps from the BA series are fitted as standard with all the necessary features required for bypass jobs. Once the dry prime pump and piping are installed, simply turn the key in the dashboard to "auto" and you can head home. When the sewage level begins to rise the BA bypass pump automatically starts up. The vacuum assisted system quickly draws up the liquid until the main pump takes over. Once the level in the sewer line falls back down, the diesel engine comes to a stop again. This efficient operation keeps your fuel costs down and ensures that wear is kept to a minimum.
Portable Dewatering Pumps on Trailers
Trailers are key to portable pumping solutions. The BBA pump trailer allows contractors and rental companies the ability to safely transport our pumps from jobsite-to-jobsite without the need of having additional equipment to load & off-load our pumps. All of our pump trailers are specifically designed for BBA Pumps, which can be towed by most full-size pickup trucks.
Single Torsion Axle Trailers are most common for our BA series 3" and 4" pumps
Tandem Torsion Axle Trailers are the standard for the larger BA series 6" and 8" pumps
Triple Axle Trailers are custom built on request for pump units larger than 12ʺ
