What Exactly Is a Lift Station?

With a gravity-fed septic system, natural forces of gravity move waste from one part of wastewater processing to the next without the need for pumps. When low elevation points don’t allow for gravity to carry waste to the next stage, however, lift stations are needed to handle the job.

A lift station sits at a low point underground and pumps sewage back to a higher elevation to move it along and allow for proper drainage. These stations are very practical and crucial to a well-functioning septic system when they are present.

Can your company handle other septic issues other than lift station pump installation?

Yes. We are a fully licensed and insured septic contractor serving Lakeland and central Florida. From tank installation, repairs and maintenance to full excavations and drainfield issues, there’s nothing our team can’t handle.

Will my new home septic system need a lift station?

It depends. If the house has a basement or is built up against a large hill, you’ll likely need some sort of sewage ejector system.

What is the difference between a “duplex” and “simplex” lift station?

As the name suggests, a duplex setup has two pumps compared to just a single pump in a simplex lift station. The pumps alternate so both get used equally. Another benefit to two pumps is in the event one fails, you’ll have a backup to keep things running until the broken one can get repaired.

How much does installation and replacement cost?

The cost of a new station will be impacted by several factors such as the type of lift station, size, and the labor required to install it. Small residential units are a fraction of the cost of massive commercial systems.
