Repair of Residential Lift Station Pumps Requires Expert Plumbing Skills

Septic Services LakelandPosted bySeptic Services LakelandFebruary 7th, 2017

In septic systems, the force of gravity pushes sewage away from homes and buildings into a tank, where solids are stored until clear water flows to the drain field. If the drain field needs to be elevated due to site conditions, a high water table, or soil conditions, commercial or residential lift station pumps are used.

Residential Lift Station PumpsLift stations work by filling up when water leaves septic tanks. This causes a float to rise, which triggers the pump to turn on when it reaches a certain point. Water is then pumped to the drain field. If the float or pump stops working, water is unable to be pumped from the tank, and the result is a plumbing backup.

Over time, commercial and residential lift station pumps can take quite a beating – not only from all the pumping, but also from abrasion and corrosion. With a demanding and harsh environment, periodic replacement and repair is to be expected.

Performing this work requires expert plumbing skills and structural knowledge. At Southeastern Septic LLC in Lakeland, Florida, we have the experience and skills to get the job done right first time.

If your septic tank has a lift station with a sump pump, a situation may arise when the pump needs to be replaced. If the light on the box is on or the alarm is sounding, this indicates an issue with the lift station. Our experienced and highly trained technicians can perform complete inspections, as well as replacement or repair of commercial and residential lift station pumps.
