Lift Station Preventative Maintenance

Brabazon Pump, Compressor & Vacuum

Lift Station Inspection

LiftStationPMBrabazon has over 30 years of experience in repairs and rebuilding of all brands of pumps and blowers for wastewater / water treatment.  Brabazon offers 24-hour emergency service with locations in Green Bay, Milwaukee, Wausau, Minneapolis/St. Paul and Northern Illinois.

Regular preventative maintenance can save lift station owners from costly repairs associated with downtime and expensive emergency services.  Frequent impeller inspection is important because worn impellers will cause pumps to run less efficiently creating more run time on the pumps and using more electricity to operate.  It may even cause premature failure of the pump motor if left undetected. 

Brabazon performs complete electrical checks including vibration reading/monitoring, motor meg testing along with amperage and voltage readings.  All findings will be documented in a report and pictures of each lift station and pump(s) will be provided, if necessary.

Brabazon Has Partnered with a Local  Sewer Cleaning and Televising Contractor to Offer Lift Station Cleaning Services. The Station will be Thoroughly Cleaned with High Pressure Water and all Debris Removed Using Vacuum Truck.
