Lift Pump Replacement
Perhaps your house is located in a valley and the leach field is located on a hill. If this is the case, you definitely have a lift pump installed within your system. You might be wondering, “what in the heck is a lift pump?” Septic systems have several pumps to ensure that everything operates properly. The lift pump helps to counter gravity. It pumps the waste exactly where it is supposed to go. Lift pumps are also known as riser pumps in some parts of the country. They are found whenever waste must be pumped to a drain field that is located at a higher elevation than the septic tank.
A septic system has a variety of different pumps. There is a grinder pump that does exactly how it sounds. This pump grinds all the waste from your home into smaller pieces before it is transferred to the septic tank. Bacteria in the tank eats away at the waste. This waste either settles at the bottom of the tank as black matter or is distributed to the leach field. We offer lift pump repair and replacements. The lift pump serves a special purpose. It transfers waste that is located above or below the house to the appropriate location. Without it, the waste would be stagnant or back up into the home.
