Commercial & Lift Station Pumping

The only difference between a septic system that uses a septic lift station and one that doesn't is simply the pumps and controls. When the sewage that is stored in a septic tank reaches a preset level, a sensor is triggered that turns on the pump. Then the wastewater is pumped to the next location or destination. By setting up regularly scheduled maintenance, problems can be avoided in the future. Keep in mind the pumps, electronic controls, and electrical system are all in a constant corrosive environment, so lift stations require maintenance to head off the need for costly repairs.

Proper maintenance includes wet wells being pumped out and cleaned to prevent solids and grease buildup, inspection of the pumps, greasing of the check valves, and inspections and cleaning of the floats to assure proper performance. Also, an inspection of all electrical motor-control equipment and of the basin, clean-outs, and covers should be done on a regular basis to prevent buildup.

Clogged Drains?

Many times a septic tank is installed and covered up with no access risers, and most of the time is never thought about again, until drains become blocked. Pumping your tank regularly will help to protect your system from premature failure.

If you are not connected to city sewer you rely on septic tanks to process household waste. Mountain Valley Pumping's professionals are experts who service, repair, pump and replace septic tanks and connected drain fields.

Septic systems should be inspected and cleaned every 3 - 5 years. Septic systems with effluent filters need to be inspected annually. All waste is taken to an approved treatment and processing facility. Environmental laws and regulations are followed to ensure environmental hazards are minimalized.
