Data-Command offers cloud-based lift station monitoring and pump monitoring to deliver critical station and alarm information in real-time. Sewage pump stations are also referred to as lift stations. Join our Lift Station Community on Google+
About Lift Stations
Also known as a sewage pump station, lift stations are a major part of the wastewater collection system. In a municipality there is a network of sewers that convey the sanitary sewer water to a wastewater treatment plant. These sewers operate by utilizing gravity to make the wastewater flow downhill. In low areas where water stops before reaching the treatment plant, it must be “lifted” to a higher elevation for the gravity process to continue.
To lift this water to the higher elevation, it is necessary to use pumps. Prior to pumping, water is collected in a wet well. This is nothing more than a large holding tank usually in the form of an underground concrete vault. Pumps go on and off based on when the wet well reaches certain levels. At high levels pumps turn on, and at low levels pumps turn off.
Our products pull information from either our installed, or your pre-existing hardware, and sends it to one of our data centers. Users are then notified in the event of a problem. Additionally, users are able to monitor stations and control them through our secure Data-Command Info-Portal™ via any internet connected device, such as a PC, tablet, or smartphone.
At any time, users can easily view a set of informative displays, alerts, reports, and trends. These displays are customized to show vital pump information, in a way that is simple to navigate.
Mobile Access Allows fewer people to do more. Reduced management requirements enable small teams to handle expanding projects, while still monitoring key lift station metrics:
- Status (currently running or stopped)
- Number of pump cycles
- Runtime hours
- Wet well level
- Pump failure, High wet well alarm
- Pump flows, Flow Totalization
Save money. Smaller teams, reduced travel time and costs, save municipalities considerable budget space on new projects and upgrades.
- Eliminate avoidable damage claims from flooded basements
- Eliminate avoidable Environmental discharges
- Get rid of expensive leased line
- Eliminate unnecessary trips
- Greatly reduced administration time

Our Data-Command Info-Portal™ dashboards enable our users to view and manage their equipment and processes. Dashboards can be customized to provide high quality visualization of how equipment is performing. This also allows operations and maintenance personnel to monitor operations 24/7.
Transmitting from these sites to our servers using cellular or Ethernet technology allows users to easily check locations using a PC or mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet.
Operations and maintenance personnel can easily view system data at any time by logging into the Data-Command Info-Portal™. Customized displays, alerts, reports, and trends present information in a clear and concise format.
In the days past, a common monitoring system in the wastewater treatment industry was a flashing red light at the station which was possibly accompanied by an alarm dialer and a dial-out phone line. These are also known as an auto dialer, which as the term implies, will automatically dial a phone and generates a voice message that an alarm was triggered.
For those stations without an alarm dialer, the most problematic part of this system is that it relies on someone noticing the station light before serious problems such as sewer backups occur. For those with alarm dialers, the lack of information surrounding an alarm trigger can cause unnecessary trips to stations which are usually in remote locations.
The depth of our hardware and software products is what differentiates us from our competitors. By enabling our clients to connect just about any piece of equipment, to our cloud-based servers, we are able to give them increased access to a wider range of information. This ultimately gives our users remote access and control of their system. We can utilize cost effective connections such as cellular, satellite, DSL, and cable to reach practically any equipment, anywhere you may have it.
