What Is a Septic System Lift Pump?
A typical septic system uses gravity to move filtered waste into the drain field. In this type of system, solid and liquid septic waste is allowed to separate in the tank; the resulting wastewater is then moved through a series of perforated pipes to distribute it throughout the drainage field. Often, available space and geography prevent this type of system from being effective. In these cases, a lift pump is used to move wastewater to an area where it can be properly filtered into the soil. If your home is situated on a hilly lot or has a raised bed system, your septic system may employ a lift pump.
Septic System Lift Pump Repair
Like all pumping systems, a septic lift can become clogged or can suffer from motor wear over time. An improperly functioning septic lift system can cause your tank to overflow. Typical signs of a full tank include foul odors in the home or yard and water pooling on your lawn. Under normal circumstances, a septic tank will require pumping every three to five years; if your system is filling too quickly, a damaged lift pump might be the cause. If you live in the greater Syracuse area, Mr. Rooter Plumbing offers comprehensive septic service that can ensure every aspect of your system is functioning properly. We offer repairs and general maintenance, septic inspections, pumping and cleaning that will save you money in the long run by ensuring the overall health of your system.
