Commercial pump stations handle a large volume of debris and sewer. This debris can clog the pump propellers and/or floats.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to control what your tenants and customers flush down the drain. A buildup of Fats, Oils and Grease and debris, can cause serious drainage issues.
The alarm should go off any time there is a problem. There could be various reasons as to why the alarm is going off such as a blockage, electrical error, and high water levels.
