Important Components Within A Pump Station

Without a pump station, the septic tank would quickly fill with waste and water, leading to an overflow. For the pump station to function properly, you must ensure that the correct size of pump has been selected and that all the vital components are in good, working condition. 

  • Casing – The casing around the pump prevents unwanted waste from entering the pump, causing clogs or damage to other components of the pump. If the casing gets cracked or damaged, it will need to be repaired immediately.
  • Impeller – The impeller is responsible for moving the water through the pump. If the impeller is damaged or broken, water will not be removed from the tank properly. A damaged impeller could lead to a number of different issues if not repaired.
  • Floats – In most pump stations, you will find two different floats. The first of which is used to trigger the pump when the water reaches a certain level. If the float fails to trigger the pump, it could lead to an overflow of water and waste.  
  • Alarm – The second float is placed higher and triggers an alarm as a warning that either the pump or the first float is not functioning properly. If this alarm goes off, immediate septic services are needed to avoid the tank overflowing.
