    Cost Effective Wastewater Pump Solutions

    Routine Maintenance

    Our expertly trained and certified wastewater lift station experts have a specific skill set that can properly diagnose, inspect, and maintain sump pumps of many varieties. Our professionals utilize their skills as a part electrician and part plumber to assess your pumps to ensure they are operating at their full capacity. Each preventative maintenance visit includes thorough documentation as well as assessing aspects of your wastewater pump or lift station system.

    Items assessed during routine maintenance:

    • Voltage
    • Amperage
    • External pumps
    • Pump functionality
    • Wet well condition
    • Discharge piping
    • Water level sensors
    • Pump controllers
    • Telemetry system
    • Emergency backup devices
    • Generator functionality
    • Piping condition and configuration
    • Pipe servicing if required
    • Inline grinders associated with sanitary waste stream

    Maintaining Systems Lengthens the Life Cycle of Lift Stations

    Lift stations experience unique and intense strain throughout their usage, reducing the average lifespan to a mere 5-10 years. Replacement and installation of lift stations can be invasive and expensive to the property owner. Routine maintenance can reduce repair costs and add valuable time to a pump’s life. Unmaintained systems risk being overworked and operating slower than intended, increasing operation expense as more time and electricity are required to pump the same volume of water. The only way to ensure your wastewater lift station will continue to operate efficiently is routine preventative maintenance. Maintenance logs are also required by law for many lift stations to ensure operating as designed.
