A lift station is a vital part of many commercial septic systems. It plays an integral role in moving waste-water from a low to a high elevation by allowing the septic system to work properly and avoid obstructions. Therefore, if a lift station is damaged, it can lead to standing water, foul odors, and even sanitation violations.
Floats and Alarms If the float that detects high water levels is damaged, it will fail to trigger the alarm and lead to an overflow.
Corrosion Sewage is extremely prone to corrosion and lack of regular maintenance may cause damage to your septic system components.
Pump ProblemsDue to its continuous movement, motors and other components such as the valve and pressure switch will eventually wear out and need to be replaced in order to prevent further damage.
Pipe Issues Septic lift pipes often encounter clogging and root intrusion which could lead to overflowing and other serious problems.
