Lift Station Repair
Lift Station Maintenance, Repair & Installation Services–
At Cloud 9 Services LLC servicing in Florida, we specialize in lift station maintenance, repairs, and installation. Lift stations are used to lift any type of sewage or wastewater from a building up into a sanitary sewer where the sewage or wastewater is then treated. While these systems are advantageous for many property owners, problems gone unnoticed or not taken care of promptly can quickly turn into a larger sewage issue. In order for our clients to know when they have a problem with their lift station, we are able to offer information and proper care instructions to our clients.
The first bit of advice that we give to our clients with lift stations involves getting to know what type of lift station they have. There are two basic pumps that come with a lift station: a sewage pump and a grinder pump. One problem many property owners encounter is when the sewage pump of their lift station becomes clogged and stops working efficiently. Although grinder pumps are less prone to clogging, clogged lift station pumps are one problem that commercial and industrial property owners should be aware of. If you have a sewage pump as part of your lift station, avoid allowing large solids such as diapers and sanitary napkins to go through this pump. This will prevent large problems from occurring within your lift station.
If you have a lift station, we recommend that you have maintenance performed on your system regularly. If your require lift station maintenance or you encounter a problem that requires lift station repair, the experts at Cloud 9 Services LLC are available to assist you at any time of the day or night, so contact us anytime.
What is a Lift Station?
A lift station is a pumping station that moves wastewater from a lower elevation to a higher elevation when the gradient of the area does not allow for a natural flow.
There are two main elements to a lift station : the wet well and the controls. The wet well is a basin into which the inflow is discharged and where the pumps sit. The control panel is the brain of the lift station.
How does a lift station work?
Wastewater and sewage is stored and fed into a pit. Once the sewage reaches a certain level, electrical instruments recognize the pit is full and activate the pump, which will then pump the sewage out to its next destination. Most lift stations are housed underground to prevent health risks in a confined area, since the wastewater can release poisonous gases like methane and hydrogen sulfide. Therefore, it is essential that owners of existing lift stations consult a professional, like Cloud 9 Services, to ensure the pump is still working sufficiently.
Grinder Pump Maintenance
A grinder pump is a submersible pump that collects wastewater from a building, grinds up the solids, and pumps it to the sewer system through small-diameter pipes. Everything that goes down your toilets winds up going into the lift station system and when the water reaches a certain level the grinder pump will turn on automatically. With this in mind it is important to not dump anything into this system that isn't supposed to be there. Such as paper towels, feminine products, personal cleaning wipes, etc. All of those products should be disposed of in the garbage in order to maintain the grinder pump health and keep the grinder pump working properly.
How to tell if your grinder pump isn't working
Most lift stations have alarms that will go off when certain things are damaged or not working inside of it, a grinder pump is one of those things. If your grinder pump alarm is going off it is important to get that issue taken care of in order to prevent the whole lift station system from becoming damaged. Our licensed and certified technicians can help you with all your lift station needs, including grinder pump removal and cleaning. Our technicians will remove the grinder pump, clear all the gunk that is clogging the pump, clean the lift station, and place the grinder pump back inside.

Lift Station Cleaning
When change in ground elevation make proper drainage difficult, lift stations keep wastewater flowing correctly. Lift stations, like tanks and pipes, can become clogged from accumulated waste. When this occurs, the tank may begin to overflow and cause unsanitary, foul smelling puddles to form.
How often should you clean your lift stations?
Commercial lift stations may require more frequent cleaning but it is recommended to clean it at least once a year.
This process can be done by having our jet vac cleaner to dislodge the accumulated waste and our vacuum truck to suck it all away. This leaves your lift station unclogged and ready for continued use. At Cloud 9 Services we are quipped to handle all your lift station cleaning needs.
