What is the Purpose of Lift Station Pumps?Buying a property with a septic system can be quite the adjustment if you’ve only ever used a sewage system before. It’s important to know everything you can about the working parts of your new system to keep it in top condition. One of those working parts often includes a lift station pump. Here is some information about their purpose.

Pump to a higher elevation: The main purpose of lift station pumps is to help pump the wastewater from your home from a lower elevation to a higher elevation to be properly treated. This is especially important when your drain field is installed on a higher elevation than the rest of your septic system for more optimal draining.

Maintain a smooth flow: Lift station pumps also help to keep your wastewater flowing smoothly through your septic system to ensure an effective waste elimination and water treatment process.

Prevent clogs: Along with maintaining a smooth flow of wastewater through your septic system, lift station pumps also help to prevent clogs in your system by consistently pumping the wastewater onward to the next part of the system.

When you have a sloped property, a lift station pump can be especially important and can last 15 to 20 years when properly maintained. If you need help locating your lift station pump or maintaining it, you can rely on us at Southeastern Septic LLC. We are happy to provide any information or services you may need.
