Lift Station Maintenance & Repair

A lift station is present in facilities when gravity flow is not an optimal choice due to elevation or restrictions. Lift station systems can be utilized in both sanitary and stormwater applications. Lift stations are also commonly referred to as dock pumps, sump pumps, sewage ejectors, pump stations, or lift pumps. These systems require regular inspection and maintenance to sustain proper performance despite the unique stresses your system experiences.

When these stations are not maintained, the system can back up, overheat, or fail. AQUALIS provides overall management, maintenance, and inspections of lift stations to help prevent system malfunctions. AQUALIS can customize a lift station program to meet the specific needs of our customers.
