Lift stations move waste through the system when gravity is not sufficient to handle the job.
Septic systems are a gravity-fed waste management system that works quite well when there is enough grade to facilitate waste flow. However, when a property does not have sufficient grade, it is necessary to have a lift station installed. At Tampa Septic, we offer various services related to lift stations, including lift station pump installation or replacement and lift station pump repair.
Lift stations are more commonly used in Zephyrhills, Florida than in some areas of the country due to the area being a flat, coastal plain with a relatively low elevation. It stands to reason that it would be challenging to encourage waste to travel when gravity cannot be utilized successfully without a pump to solve the problem.
The way that lift stations work is that the pump engages when the floats and sensors alert that the sewage has reached a level where it needs to be moved along the system. If the pump isn’t performing as it should, a backup can easily occur. The good news is that lift stations are installed with an alarm system that lets you know if there is a problem, so you can call for service before the situation worsens. It is also a good idea to have the pump serviced regularly and replaced when it is nearing the end of its functional lifespan.
