Lift stations lift sewage from a building into a sanitary sewer so it can be treated. These systems work very well for many property owners, but the problems may not be noticed, resulting in them not being taken care of quickly. It is very important for a property owner to know how to recognize when a problem exists so that a lift station repair can be executed when it needs to be.
It is important for you to know what type of lift station you have. If you don’t know, you can get answers from a qualified professional. The station includes a grinder pump and a sewage pump. One common problem is when the sewage pump has a clog and doesn’t work well or not at all. Grinder pumps are a lot less prone to clogging, but they can have issues, as well. Clogged pumps are something that you should be aware of. You can then make sure that large solids, such as sanitary napkins and diapers, don’t try to go through this pump. You can avoid some very large problems by knowing how your lift station works.
If you notice that your lift station isn’t working properly, it’s important to call us for a lift station repair as quickly as possible. This will prevent a very messy and unsanitary problem from occurring and will also prevent you from having to deal with a very expensive situation that you wouldn’t have to deal with through proper maintenance and lift station repair.
