What is a Lift Station?
A lift station is an integral component of a septic system designed to pump wastewater or sewage from a lower to higher elevation when the gradient of the area does not allow for natural flow. Equipped with pumps, valves, and electronic control systems, lift stations ensure that your septic system functions smoothly and efficiently. They can be crucial in areas where topography or land use issues make traditional gravity-based systems impractical.
Uses of Lift Stations
Lift stations primarily find use in municipal wastewater management systems and septic systems of residential, commercial, or industrial properties located in hilly or uneven terrain. They enable the movement of wastewater from lower to higher ground, leading to the wastewater treatment plant or the drain field. This makes them an essential component in maintaining sanitation and hygiene in the community.
Lift Station Repair
With our professional repair services, we ensure that your lift station operates seamlessly around the clock. Our team is skilled in identifying issues ranging from pump malfunctions, switch issues to blockages, and power outages. After thorough inspection and diagnosis, we provide effective repair solutions adhering to South Carolina's regulatory standards.
Common Lift Station Problems We Can Repair
Just like any other system, lift stations can encounter issues affecting their operation. Here are a few common ones:
- Pump Failure: Pump failure is a common problem that can cause the lift station to stop functioning. This can be due to wear and tear, mechanical issues, or electrical problems.
- Float Switch Issues: Float switches signal the pump to start and stop. If they malfunction, they can cause the pump to run continuously or not at all, resulting in possible overflow or pump damage.
- Power Outages: During power outages, lift stations without backup power can cease operation, leading to a potential backup of wastewater.
- Blockages: Accumulation of debris, fats, oils, or grease can lead to blockages, restricting the flow of wastewater.

When repair is no longer a viable option, or if your lift station is nearing the end of its service life, we at Prime Septic provide expert replacement services. We understand the requirements of your property and replace your old lift station with a new, efficient model that meets all DHEC guidelines.
South Carolina Regulations on Lift Stations
South Carolina has specific rules and regulations concerning the installation, maintenance, and operation of lift stations. Prime Septic adheres to these guidelines to ensure the safety and longevity of your septic system.
