Tips for purchasing a lift station

Lift stations are almost always something people don’t even think about until they have to. Long story, short – lift stations help waste water work against gravity and help keep things clean and safe. If you know you’ll need to buy one in the near future, we’re sure you’ll have a ton of questions, some of which we’ll attempt to answer here today. If you’re in the market for a lift station, here are the things you’ll have to consider and think about so that you make the best possible purchase. Let’s jump right in! Wet well materials Lift stations are basically made up of two basic parts: the wet well and the controls. The wet well houses all the pumps and is the place where all the you-know-what will be stored. Generally speaking, they’re made out of fiberglass and concrete. You might stumble across the odd metal basin, but those are more and more rare these days as their overall cost and performance pale in comparison to both fiberglass and concrete – but particularly fiberglass. Design and controls are really important The second part of lift station is it’s controls. Most lift stations will run on their own – but it’s still important to understand how the unit runs and whether the controls are easy to access, decipher and use. Make sure there’s an option that allows you to take control when it’s necessary. That way in the event of an accident or issue- you can shut it down and make repairs.
