Causes of Overflows in Lift Stations

There are many reasons that lift stations fail, with some of the most common reasons for overflow being:

  • Failure of an electronic control component or motor
  • A stuck valve
  • A clogged pump (see below)

If you have a lift station, the following items should never be flushed, as they can result in a clogged the pump:

  • Cleaning wipes
  • Baby wipes
  • Bathroom wipes (even though they say they are flushable!)
  • Diapers (both cloth and disposable types)
  • Q-Tips
  • Feminine sanitary products

If you notice any of the above issues or suspect pump failure, be sure to address them sooner rather than later by having a professional come out to assess the situation. Our technicians will always diagnose the system before prescribing a repair plan. This enables us to develop the best solution for you – one that’s informed, practical, and customized to your specific system and needs.

How Often Should Lift Stations Be Serviced?

Wet wall cleaning is typically recommended every four years for residential customers and every year for commercial customers. This cleaning helps prevent the buildup of grease and solids that can damage your pump.

In addition to cleaning, lift station inspections and the performance of regular preventative lift station maintenance are essential to helping reduce costs and increasing the lifespan and reliability of your equipment. Inspections will help ensure the proper functioning of the various components of your lift station, while regular maintenance can save you from having to make costly repairs in the future.
