Lift Station Pumping

An ideal sewage system relies on gravity to pull the wastewater away from the home or building and into the appropriate wastewater treatment facility. Unfortunately, gravity does not always help in this way. It is not uncommon to have a commercial property or home that is in a low-lying area. In such cases, the sewage system needs additional help to push the wastewater uphill to where it is supposed to go. The solution is a lift station.

A lift station is used to pump wastewater or sewage from a low level to a higher level when the gradient of the area does not allow for a natural flow. Lift stations have two primary elements: the wet well and the controls. The wet well acts as a basin to store sewage until it is ready to be discharged or pumped. The control panel is essentially the “brain” of the lift station, as it recognizes when the pit is full and signals the lift station to pump the wastewater to higher ground. When a lift station is not in place or not working properly, the consequences can be severe. Sewage can quickly backup into your home or business and case costly damages.

At Bynum & Sons Plumbing, we have trained technicians that can handle lift station pumping for your residential or commercial property. We are a family owned plumbing, sewer & septic services company that has served the Atlanta area since 1997. We promise affordable rates, superior workmanship and timely service.

Sewage Pumping Service

We understand the importance of proper maintenance for your lift station. If a lift station is not pumped on a routine basis, the wet well or basin can accumulate solids and grease. This can render the lift station ineffective or inefficient when it comes pumping sewage away from your home or business. Neglecting to pump your lift station in a timely manner can cause costly backups and preventable property damage.

The pumps, electronic controls, and electrical system of a lift station reside in a highly corrosive environment. Therefore, our technicians are trained to clean and pump the wet well to prevent solids and grease from accumulating. We will also inspect all components of your lift station to ensure they are in proper working order, including pumps, check valves, floats, electrical motor-control equipment and more.

Does your lift station need pumping? Contact the professionals of Bynum & Sons Plumbing. Our goal is to minimize and even eliminate the risk of sewage backing up into your home so that you can avoid serious repercussions.

Installers were great and very friendly. They appeared to know what they were doing, and I have had no problems with the Water Heater since the installation. They arrived well within the appointment window, and called before arriving. Prices for services were reasonable. I would have given them 5 Stars, but they never reinstalled the door they had removed to facilitate the installation. I must admit I was very surprised when I came home from work to see the door leaning up against a wall.

I found Bynum and Sons through my local Home Depot store. I needed a water heater at the house I had just bought. Bynum and Sons did a great job. They bought my water heater from home depot and brought it to my house for me. The installer was nice, professional, and fast. They hauled away my old water heater so I didn't have to deal with that. I would definitely use them again for my future plumbing needs!!!! There price was also better than the other plumber I checked.

Anthony arrived within the allotted time window and did a great job replacing my kitchen faucet. He found an issue with the soap dispenser installation but he quickly resolved it. He went the extra mile, very much appreciated!
