What is a Sewage Lift Station?

Most of us don’t tend to think of structures that are essential for the normal functioning of our houses and workplaces. Sewage lift stations are one of these structures. They are made to transfer wastewater through pipes from a lower elevation to a higher elevation.

When is A Lift Station Needed?

There are two types of lift stations: dry well and submersible pump. A dry well is usually located in a separate chamber or underground while the submersible pump is used inside the wastewater to pump it with a motor. Either way, these lift stations are highly more effective and less costly compared to other traditional systems. If you know that your old system for sewage is starting to face troubles or it gets old, then having a lift station is far more beneficial.

  • Advantages of Dry Well- They have easier access because it is easier to see and examine them. Therefore, their maintenance is easier, and this is a great benefit. Additionally, fixing Dry good versions is easier compared to submersible lift stations.
  • Advantages Of Submersible Lift Stations- They tend to be less expensive and require less maintenance. They have simpler structures, so they tend to be less expensive and save space. 

Lift Station Cleaning

Again, a lift station is to move wastewater from low elevation to high elevation. With the procedure as such, there needs to be regular cleaning to have it at its most effective self. The parts of a lift station that mostly needs cleaning include the odor-controlling system, the motor, power supply, pumps, and well.

Don’t Fall for the Trap of Unprofessional Services

Septic tank pumping includes many procedures. The wastewater has a direct connection to the infrastructure of the property. That is why there is no way to stress the importance of having the right septic company take care of your lift stations. Many unprofessional services provide cheap and "quality" services, but in a long term, this is just a complete risk to your property. For this reason, maintaining your sewage system, and regularly checking it is crucial.

Importance of Maintaining Your Lift Station

The biggest responsibility of the person starts when they have installed their lift station. With the buildup of many wastes, there should at least be a cleaning twice a year. Also, in addition to the cleaning, other lift stations may need regular checkups to make sure that everything is running smoothly. A responsibility as such calls for a high-quality service.
