Your septic system has a lot of components to it that help to get rid of your waste. Each of these components requires specific maintenance and attention to help keep them working properly. One of these components is the lift station, which helps transport waste from your septic tank to the drain field. If it’s malfunctioning or otherwise damaged, you’ll need professional lift station services to get it up and running again.
Here are some common signs to look out for that indicate a need for professional lift station services:
- No one wants to deal with leaking sewage in their yard or property. If you’ve noticed sewage leaking on your property, there might be a problem with your lift station.
- A foul odor. If you smell waste products, that means they aren’t being properly contained within your septic system. One of the possible reasons for this odor could be lift station related, caused potentially by faulty or clogged pumps.
- Slow drainage. Accumulation of sludge and clogs could be disastrous for your lift station and lead to other septic tank-related issues. If you notice slow drainage in your sinks, showers, or bathtubs, don’t brush it aside, as you might have lift station issues.
