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.
Lift stations are made up of various working parts that all work together efficiently to collect wastewater and move it to the next section of processing.
These parts include:
Lift stations need to maintain specific quality standards to work efficiently and effectively. All these standards will greatly reduce the chance of malfunction and the need for repairs.
The pump’s capacity must match accurately with the volume of waste being accepted and treated

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.
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.
