Septic Lift Stations
Moving Septic Waste from A to B
Lift stations are designed to move waste water from a lower elevation to a higher elevation. The key elements in a lift station are a well, or wet well, equipped with screen or grading to remove course materials, motors, power supply, a pump and piping, valves, equipment control with an alarm system, odor control and a ventilation system.
Lift stations are generally used to reduce capital cost of waste removal when connected to a local government controlled or private main sewer system.
Lift stations are a great alternative when gravity sewer is installed deeper than 10 feet due to the higher cost of the excavation process.
