Pump station service

If the leaching area is at a higher elevation than the septic tank outlet then a pumping station is needed to pump the effluent to the leaching area. A pump station is a separate small concrete tank or second compartment of a septic tank containing a pump designed to move the effluent. The pump operates on a float-controlled switch.

When the storage area in the tank is full, it will pump the contents to the leaching system. Timers can also be used in place of floats to spread effluent application evenly throughout the day. The pump has an emergency alarm indicator circuit to warn the homeowner when the water level is too high. If this happens, the problem needs immediate attention! Be sure to know where this alarm is, what it means, and what to do when it is activated. The manhole cover on lift stations should be at the surface for easy year round access.

The interior of a sewage pump station is a very dangerous place. Poisonous gases such as methane and hydrogen sulfide can accumulate in the wet well; an ill-equipped person entering the well could be overcome by fumes very quickly. Any entry into the wet well requires the correct confined space entry method for a hazardous environment. To minimize the need for entry, the facility is normally designed to allow pumps and other equipment to be removed from outside the wet well.

Using smaller excavation machines such as a bobcat or a mini-excavator is an effective way of digging in areas unreachable by conventional heavy equipment. These particular kinds of machinery have a lot of digging power for their relatively small size. At times, a mini-excavator used in conjunction with a bobcat skid-steer loader has a very impressive way of tackling those tight clearance trenching and digging jobs, located in hard to access areas near buildings or other obstacles.
