What Is the Purpose of a Lift Station?
A lift station is an integral part of many sewer systems. It consists of a pump and tank that collects wastewater from a lower elevation, then transports it to a higher elevation and out of the system. This function is essential for communities, as without it, sewage would collect in low-lying areas and unsanitary conditions would arise.
Specifically, this type of engineering allows the cities to increase their sewage capacity, remove pollutants from urban areas more efficiently, and ultimately improve public health. Furthermore, while they are expensive to construct and maintain, they do not require energy input once operational due to gravity drainage being used on the downward portion of its route.
This makes them green-friendly options for cities looking to reduce their environmental footprint through wastewater processes.

Lift station maintenance is a critical aspect of keeping your sewage system functioning properly. It's important to perform regular checkups and servicing to keep these systems up and running, but how often should it be done? Generally, lift station maintenance should be performed at least once a year to ensure optimal performance.
However, if your lift station has been used heavily or you notice any unusual odors coming from it, you may want to increase the frequency of inspections. These inspections can involve using specialized cameras to inspect pipes, checking the electrical wiring and components, as well as testing the pump’s power consumption and performance.
With regular maintenance, you'll be able to avoid costly repairs in the future while being confident that your lift station is performing optimally.
