What Is a Sewage Lift Station?

By understanding the sewage lift station’s purpose in your commercial sewage system, you can help keep it maintained and recognize when problems arise. A sewage lift station is located below the septic tank or sewage drain and fed by a waste source such as a toilet or garbage disposal. These sewage lift stations are installed when there's not enough gravity flow to pump sewage to its next destination. A receiving well — where the wastewater is collected — pump and power source and control panel make up a lift station.

Common Lift Station Problems

To avoid costly issues caused by improper maintenance, you need to know what common lift station problems are so you can recognize them early on and perform preventative measures as needed. With your commercial lift stations, you may experience these common problems:

  • Pipe issues: As with any pipes in a plumbing system, your lift system is subject to wear, corrosion, clogs and damages from root growth.
  • Pump problems: Listen for any noise or vibrations coming from your commercial lift station — these can be indicators of short cycling, worn out motors or issues with other parts like the pressure switch or check valve.
  • Float and alarm breakages: These mechanisms trigger a high water alarm when the well is getting too full. To prevent overflow, they should be regularly maintained.
  • Corrosion: Sewage is very corrosive and can cause damage to nearby components. A professional can assess any corrosion points during regular lift station maintenance.

By having your septic lift system regularly maintained by a Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Oneida licensed professional, you can avoid larger and costlier issues that can lead to serious plumbing problems and health risks.

During regular maintenance, a failed pump can be identified early on. If both pumps burn out, you may have to hire a pump-out truck while repairs to the lift station are made. By keeping up with regular checkups and identifying potential issues, a failed pump can be fixed while the other pump still runs. This way, your lift station will still operate normally.
