Keeping Your Septic System Flowing Smoothly

Lift Station Pump Repair

Lift station pumps play a crucial role in septic systems that require sewage to move from lower to higher levels. While an ideal septic system allows waste to flow naturally downhill to the drain field, the land grade in our Florida area sometimes demands the use of lift stations.

With over 15 years of experience, Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. has been assisting our customers in maintaining their lift stations at their best. We offer licensed lift station pump repairs, inspections, maintenance, and complete installations, whether it’s to replace a failing lift station or as part of a new septic system.

Potential Issues with Lift Stations

Understanding how lift stations operate highlights the importance of swift action when problems arise. Ignoring lift station pump issues can lead to septic backups and damage to other components of the septic system.

Two primary concerns signal the need for lift station pump repair:

  • Pump Leakage:
  • Leaks in a lift station pump often result from significant shifts in surrounding soil or heavy vehicles exerting pressure on it. Misalignment or damage to the pump can lead to problems affecting other parts of the septic system.
  • Pump Failure:

As with any mechanical device, lift station pumps can eventually lose their efficiency. Pump failure can cause sewage backups, odors inside and outside the home, and various types of septic system damage.

Recognizing Septic System Problems

Issues with lift stations and other septic components typically leave clues. Look out for:

  • Multiple sinks and tubs backing up with sewage.
  • Toilets flushing slowly or overflowing.
  • Strong odors inside or outside the home, near the septic tank or drain field.
  • Soggy patches of grass or ground above or near the septic system.

Lift Station Inspections

While lift stations have alarms that alert you to potential problems, periodic inspections remain essential. Thorough lift station inspections should be conducted before initiating any repair work. We also recommend inspections even when everything appears to be running smoothly.

Once we’ve worked on your septic system, we can advise you on an optimal schedule for septic inspections and pumping, tailored to the specific needs of your system and the volume of water and sewage it handles. Trust Anytime Septic Solutions Inc. to keep your septic system flowing seamlessly.
