A lift station is common for homes in Jupiter, Stuart, and Port St. Lucie. These stations are also referred to as sump or sewage pumps and remove waste from the low areas in the drain fields.
Florida has the highest number of lift stations and you will see them in numerous areas throughout our region.
Here is an explanation of how lift stations work and the role sump pumps play in removing your wastewater.
What is a Lift Station?
A lift station is placed at the lowest points so that the sewage can be pushed higher. The sewage lines move at vertical angles and can become clogged from gravity. A sump pump makes the adjustments in the line to guide the wastewater to the treatment facilities.
You must perform regular maintenance on your lift stations to ensure that everything works properly.
We recommend having our trained professionals come out and do routine maintenance you require.

The Sewage Lift Station Repairs and Installation from Stuart and Port St. Lucie to Jupiter
Lift stations are constantly pumping sewage 24 hours a day that ranges from 20 GPM to 100 thousand GPM. On average, a typical sewage pump will run at a rate of 10 thousand GPM. The transportation of these large amounts of waste per minute increases the corrosion.
If you fail to do the proper maintenance, your lift station will fail and cause backups in the drain field. Situations like this lead to downtimes that impact your wastewater treatment and you may have to replace the system.
