Lift station Pumping System Services in Chicago

A Lift Station pumping system is used to pump wastewater back down into the main sewer line.  This system runs twenty-four hours a day, 365 days a year, making it an effective buffer against sewer backup from either city or village sewer lines.

Unfortunately, a Lift Station comes with one downside—it needs consistent power.   If the power fails, the area it pumps out may become flooded, even if it doesn’t rain, and especially if the station is the only system in use.  For this reason, we highly recommend a battery backup system should be paired with a lift station pumping system.

Why Should You Install a lift station pumping system?

Like all our services, there are several factors to consider with a Lift Station. Some of them are as follows:

Are you installing one for your home or business?

Residential properties don’t usually require the kind of constant service a Lift Station provides, so it’s generally not recommended—though not unheard of—for a regular homeowner to purchase a lift station, especially a home with a dual sewer situation.   Lift stations are excellent on storm sewer flooding situations.


These systems are expensive, and not just at first glance.  They require consistent supervision and upkeep over their lifespan—often around twenty years—to make sure they’re running as smooth as possible 24/7, 365.

What kind of flooding do you experience?

If your business or home is in an area where you know sewage off-flow is an issue, even when it’s not raining, a Lift Station is your best bet for consistent support and overflow prevention.
