Are you having problems with your current lift station level controls? Dwyer Instruments may just have the cost effective solution you need. In this article we will review several level sensing strategies, the advantages and disadvantages of each, as well as an option you may want to consider for your next project.
Lift Station Basics
In an ideal gravity fed wastewater collection system, sewage would flow downhill from its point of origin in residential or commercial areas to its final treatment plant destination. Due to a number of factors including total distance, topography, geology, economics, etc., the ideal piping design is not always feasible. Therefore, in most cases, sewage flows downhill to a lift station where it collects and then is pumped to a higher elevation in order to begin its downhill journey again.
