Lift stations are some of the most important components of a wastewater treatment system and critical to its overall health. Many times, its importance gets overlooked and you shouldn’t fall into that trap. Lift stations are often the first line of defense for a sewage system and today we’re going to talk about how remote digital monitoring and lift stations come together to help keep your water treatment systems safe and operational.
Let’s jump right in.
What lift stations do?
Lift stations help move waste water uphill, basically. When there’s an increase in elevation, lift stations help ensure that wastewater makes its way towards where it needs to go. When they get gummed up or malfunction – it can create dangerous issues for wastewater system managers.
Protecting the environment
Plainly put – sewage systems help project our environment and our communities. From flooding and overflows, to backups and spills, when a lift station doesn’t work properly, there can be a lot of damage done. So you have to ask yourself – do you have an early warning system in the event that something goes wrong? How protected are you? Are you sitting on a small problem that could become an enormous one? How do you know what’s going on day to day?
That’s where remote digital monitoring comes in – because it helps identify issues before they become problems. They help you avoid those mini-environmental crises that could capsize an entire business. Lift stations and wastewater management systems help to protect the environment. Remote digital monitoring helps protect the systems themselves.
Should you make the investment?
There’s no such thing as a good time for a problem to happen – and when something does go wrong it’s almost always at the worst possible time. Remote monitoring eliminates these worries because you’ll be able to head off problems well before they reach the pass.
In addition to the protection from all the bad things- they help the good things run better. You won’t waste extra money and manpower dealing with inefficiencies. You’ll know what the state of your lift station is at all times and will therefore be able to get the most out of it as you possibly can.
