Keeping up with lift station cleaning can prevent serious damage and problems.
When your septic system relies on a lift station to move wastewater from lower elevation areas to higher elevation areas, it’s important to make sure you’re taking care of this component. It includes several parts that allow for proper liquid movement, and any of these components can become overloaded with dirt and grime over time. This part of the system requires regular maintenance, just like your septic tank and drain field, and our team at Brandon Septic can take care of that maintenance as part of your service agreement.
When we perform maintenance, we’ll take care of any necessary lift station cleaning as part of the process. One area that needs to be cleaned out regularly is the screen, which prevents larger pieces of waste and other material from moving into the wastewater well. If this gets clogged with debris, it may not be able to function properly, resulting in items moving into the lift station that can cause damage. Other materials can move through the screen, including grease and oils, so cleaning these out can prevent clogs and keep things flowing properly.
In some areas, regular lift station cleaning is a requirement implemented by the city or municipality. Keeping up with lift station cleaning can prevent serious damage and problems.
