If you own a septic tank that has a lift station, then you’re likely already aware that it certainly complicates things due to its complexity. For instance, you need to keep up with the lift station maintenance to prevent serious damage and problems.
When your septic system relies on a lift station to move wastewater from lower elevation areas to higher ones, it’s important to make sure you’re taking care of this component. This is because it includes several parts that allow for proper liquid movement. Any of these components can become overloaded with dirt and grime over time, which is why this part of the system requires regular maintenance, just like your septic tank and drain field. Fortunately, this is one of the areas we specialize in. Our team at Brandon Septic can take care of this issue as part of your service agreement with us.
When we perform maintenance, we’ll take care of any necessary lift station cleaning that needs to get done. One section of it that needs to get cleaned out regularly is the filter since it’s the only thing preventing larger pieces of waste and other materials from passing into the wastewater well. If this gets clogged with debris, it may not be able to function properly, resulting in items getting stuck in the lift station and causing damage. However, it still lets other materials, such as grease and oil, move through the filter. That’s why you need us to clean those out. Debris and contaminants can really clog things up, so regularly clearing the filter out will allow the system to flow much better.
In some counties, regular lift station cleaning is a requirement implemented by the city or municipality. Keeping up with your lift station maintenance can prevent serious damage and future problems.
