Why are wastewater lift stations important?
The average sewage system is a lot more complex than you might think. It features a multi-step process with many components, all of which work together to manage wastewater. Wastewater lift stations are essential for managing wastewater, raising sewage from lower elevations to higher elevations where gravity makes collecting and separating the waste more efficient.
Each wastewater lift station has a basic set of components to move wastewater, including gravity pipes (chutes) that send wastewater to a reservoir equipped with several sump pumps. When wastewater reaches a specific level, the pumps engage and send water upward through pipes for treatment.

Signs your wastewater lift station needs maintenance
How can you tell when it’s time to schedule wastewater lift station maintenance? Some of the important signs to look for include:
- Slow drainage. One of the initial indicators that your wastewater lift station needs maintenance is drainage speed. Debris can accumulate in wastewater lift stations over time, interrupting the flow of water. While minor clogs can go unnoticed initially, the system will slowly lose functionality without routine maintenance. Trust us to clean and repair the system, restoring proper drainage.
- Bad odors. Noticing a pungent smell coming from your wastewater lift station? This is a clear sign maintenance is required. Not only are smells undesirable, it also points to debris accumulation, possible clogging and early signs of future system failure. Schedule maintenance right away.
- Buzzing sounds. If you notice a buzzing or humming sound coming from your lift station during operation, it could indicate a clog, unintended pressure or worn valves. Each of these factors adds stress to the equipment and can cause serious issues if the problem isn’t addressed. Instead of paying for more costly repairs, get the issue taken care of immediately before other components start to wear.
- An alarm. Many lift stations are equipped with alarms. If your alarm is engaged, this is the most obvious indicator that something’s wrong with your system. Alarms trigger when water levels rise too high, or because of partial or complete system failure. If the issue isn’t addressed, overflow is inevitable, so do not delay in reaching out to your trusted lift station service professionals at Drane Ranger.
