Lift Stations

A lift station is something that is rarely thought about before it’s needed. These systems work by pumping wastewater or sewage from a lower level. When the area is unable to achieve a natural flow, the lift station pumps waste to a higher level. Lift stations are also a less invasive alternative to some other preventative methods, they don’t require extensive excavation digs or costly repair. Call Flatley’s Plumbing Express today if you have any questions or concerns about installing a lift station in your home.

How Does It Work?

After use, your sewage and waste water are sent to a designated area to be stored. Once this pit or tank becomes full, the lift stations technology will recognize the level and activate a connected pump. The lift station will then pump out the waste to its next destination. There are two main components to each lift system: the wet well and the control system. When excess sewage or waste is pumped out, it gets sent to a wet well. The pump lies within the well, and the lift stations control system acts as the brain of the operation. It receives signals from switches and floats, and is then alerted that it needs to pump out excess water. If the control system isn’t working properly, neither will the pump. It’s easy to see how a faulty lift system or improper installation could be a problem.

Installation and Maintenance

At Flatley’s Plumbing Express, it’s a guarantee that your lift station will be properly installed. You are also guaranteed proper maintenance for your system. Wet wells need to be pumped to prevent the buildup of any grease or solid debris. The pump should be inspected, as well as the control system and valves. Routine maintenance and pumping is key, and it will ensure that your equipment will last you a long time.

If your think that your home or property can benefit from the installation of a lift station, call Flatley’s Plumbing Express. Because invasive construction is rarely required, installation is often a quick and simple process. With that being said, they should always be installed by a professional. The control panel may have high voltage settings. It shouldn’t be handled by anyone other than a trained professional.

WHAT SOME OF OUR CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN SAYING

Our Testimonials

We love our clients and they love our work. Our team is very experienced in both residential and commercial projects.
I called early in the morning and they had someone to my house within a few hours.  Turns out the situation really needed to be fixed ASAP; not only did they get workers and permits immediately, but the crew worked amid a down pour so that we could have working water again.  They were professional, prompt, and provided great work. Highly recommend them.
