A lift station is used to pump sewage and wastewater from a lower elevation to a higher elevation. Due to its nature of defying gravity, it is not uncommon for a lift station to need servicing. You will know if you are in need of lift station services for any of the following problems:
- Noise- If your lift station is clogged or jammed, you will be able to hear a sound of backed-up water. You may even be able to hear your septic system reversing directions into your home from your pipes. When this happens, you’re in need of emergency lift station servicing. At Averett Septic Tank Co Inc., we are available for emergencies 24 hours a day.
- Float problems- Many lift stations use a float, or bobber, to detect sewage levels. When the float becomes damaged or ruined, the pump will not run. When this happens, you are in need of lift station services immediately to avoid back-ups or explosions.
- Oil accumulation- If you know your septic system has received high levels of oils, call us right away. These substances are not water-soluble and can break down your lift station.
