FAQs About Lift Stations
Considering many people are unfamiliar with septic systems, it’s no surprise that even more people know very little about lift stations. We’re here to answer your questions about lift stations to ensure you can get the services you need and keep your septic system functioning properly. Check out our frequently asked questions below or contact us if you have other questions.
Do all septic systems have lift stations?
No. Lift stations are only required specifically in areas where changes in elevation make it difficult or impossible for the septic system to function using gravity alone. If the septic tank or drain field is located at a higher elevation than a home’s sewer line, a lift station should be used to pump the sewage upward so it can be treated.
What size lift station do I need?
The size of the lift station you need depends on several factors. We’ll need to look at the size of the property as well as the amount of waste residents produce. Luckily, our team knows how to measure these properly and use that information to make accurate calculations.
How long should my lift station last?
A lift station should last around 15 to 20 years, provided that you keep up with its maintenance.
What are some signs that I should look into lift station replacement?
When your lift station nears the end of its lifespan, you might notice issues like frequent blockages, higher electricity bills (due to constant running), rusting or corroding valves, and strange noises. We’ll let you know if these problems can be resolved or if you need to replace your lift station.
