Lift stations help septic systems function on sloped or steep properties.
When it comes to waste management, most people don’t think twice about what happens after they flush a toilet or empty the sink. However, here at Tampa Septic, we have made it our business to know, on a quite thorough level, what happens with your wastewater! If you are in the Spring Hill, Florida area, you know that septic systems are not uncommon around here. While many septic systems or other wastewater symptoms can work fine using gravity as their guide, there are some properties with slopes or hills that require lift stations in order to work properly by defying gravity a little!
Lift stations work in a similar fashion to the float on your average toilet. When the toilet is flushed, the float descends. As the water in the tank starts to fill, your float rises and will stop the filling of the water once it reaches a certain point. In a similar fashion, a lift station also has a float, but with slightly different results. When the water or sewage levels reach a certain, pre-determined amount, a float in the lift station will be activated and let the lift station know it is time to pump excess water, gray water and wastewater to a different area of the system.
