What Does A Sewer / Wastewater Lift Station Do?
A Sewage / Wastewater lift station, also called pump stations or sewer lift pump stations, are installed to pump wastewater or sewage from a lower-level elevation to higher elevation when gravity is not sufficient to move the sewage.
Is there a difference between a Lift Station and Pump Station?
Although these are often used interchangeably, there are a few subtle differences: a lift station is specifically designed for the pumping of waste water or sewage; whereas a pump station is designed to raise water not sewage from a lower elevation to a higher elevation.
How does a lift station work?
Once sewage/wastewater reaches a certain level, the lift station system which is typically underground, recognizes the pit is full and activates the sewer pump, which will then pump the sewage. Sewage lift stations, when not properly installed can present health risks and potential damage to the home, so it is very important to consult professionals.
