Before one can properly degrease a lift station, one must understand what a floating lift station is and what it does. Lift stations are used to pump waste water or sewage from low places to higher places. In essence, lift stations are needed to override the demands of gravity.
Lift stations have two main elements: the wet well and the controls. The well is a basin where waste water or sewage is discharged and where the pumps sit. The well is made of steel, fiberglass or concrete.
The Nuts and Bolts
Wells usually have two pumps. Each pump has its own check and shut-off valves. The valves stop the flow of sewage into the well. When the pump stops it prevents one pump from pumping back into the other. The control panel has circuit breakers, the motor starter, overloads, pump control software and communication devices.

Citrus King Floating Lift Station Degreaser Steps
Here are three steps in using Floating Lift Station Degreaser by Citrus King to eliminate scum and grease on surfaces:
1. Pour directly down a manhole into the wet well. For best results, use enough of the floating lift station degreaser to assure a 1 to 2 inch cap on the surface. For example, a wet well with a diameter of 5 feet would use 10 to 25 gallons of the product. 2. To help dissolve grease on the surface, spray interior walls of manway or wet well. 3. Add 1 or 2 gallons of Citrus King Floating Lift Station Degreaser every day in the sludge compartment. This allows effective and continuous treatment of both the top and bottom of a grease cake. Circulation should be confined as usual.
Follow these two steps for effective overall plant treatment:
1. Use the floating lift station degreaser to prevent grease build-up after the scum blanket is eliminated.
2. Allow one gallon to drip in influent every 24 hours, 45 drops per minute.
Here is how to use Citrus King’s Floating Lift Station Degreaser for pumping stations, wet wells and sewer lines:
1. Add the floating lift station degreaser directly into force mains and sewer lines as needed to remove built-up grease. 2. Allow the degreaser to drip directly in wet wells and pumping stations. 3. For stuck floating digester covers, apply around the edge of the cover with hose.
