Lift stations require regular maintenance

Austin Lift Station PumpingLift stations are a necessary part of modern municipal sewer systems. Pumping raw sewage from a lower elevation from a higher one, so it can continue along the sewers, these stations need one thing above all else: regular maintenance! After all, more than almost anything else in the modern world, no city or town wants to deal with a day—or even an hour—of sewer problems.

And lift stations are more prone to needing maintenance than other parts of the system. It’s not that the station breaks down; although more complex than most parts of a sewage system, this complexity mostly amounts to a screen to remove coarse materials, pumps to move the wastewater to the intended high point, control and alarm systems, and an odor control and ventilation system. These need to be checked, but they tend to stay working for the long term.

The maintenance a lift station needs, beyond equipment checks, is cleaning! Regular, monthly cleaning. In fact, most cities and counties require monthly maintenance contracts specifically to avoid any sort of buildup problems. There are plenty of materials, like oil and grease, which can get through any screen or filter but are too viscous to be moved uphill via the pump. When these accumulate, they can clog and slow the functioning of the lift station; if not properly maintained, the pump can break, and then you have a serious problem.

Lift station cleaning & pumping

A+ Septic trucks are specifically designed for lift station cleaning. These combination trucks have every tool necessary to clean the junk out of the bottom of your lift station: a Vactor-brand water pump capable of 3,000 psi of pressure and a flow of eighty gallons per minute for better cleaning, a high-powered Roots Systems blower, a fifteen-foot boom with 180 degrees of rotation to cover every corner, and a six-hundred-foot hose. Add in the 1,500-gallon water tank and 3,000-gallon debris tank, and you can be assured that when A+ septic cleans a lift station, none of the oily, greasy garbage that filtered to the bottom will be left when we’re done.

Highly Recommended

I highly recommend A+ Septic. I had septic issues and I called and they were quick to schedule, and their prices were affordable, (less than other Septic companies) the tech was very friendly and professional and above and beyond respectful of my property. I will always call A+ for any future issues with my septic.

Best Company

This is the best company in this area. Called other places to come out, but they all said it would be a week or more. I called, and they had someone come that day and fixed it. Everyone was so nice and friendly.
