Wastewater Pumping Stations in Winston-Salem
Lift Station Repair & Installation
Most people never think of the details or the many steps in the process of removing wastewater from your home to the treatment plant. In some cases, lift stations, or wastewater pumping stations, are needed to make the process work. The experts at PF Plumbing provide installation of wastewater pumping stations in Winston-Salem.
How Wastewater Pumping Stations Work
When wastewater is moved from a building to the treatment plant, the system is generally designed to run downhill from the property to the wastewater treatment plant. However, when there is a difference in elevation, the water needs extra help to get where it needs to go. Wastewater pumping stations, or lift stations, collect and transport water from a point of lower elevation to a point of higher elevation.
The pumping station handles wastewater by:
- Feeding it from underground pipelines to a wet well
- Instruments in the wet well detecting the level of wastewater
- Moving the water when it rises to a certain level in the well
- Lifting the water through a pipe system
- Discharging wastewater into a gravity manhole
- Continuing the until it reaches the treatment plant
Depending on the elevation of the land and level of high water, additional pumps may be used along with the wastewater pumping station. There are small, medium, and large pumping stations to meet the unique wastewater discharge needs of properties of all sizes.
