Experience with Lift Station

We are considering purchasing a small park that uses lift station for sewage. Does anyone have any experience with this? What questions should we be asking about it and what should we be looking for?

Redundancy is key. Are there two pumps that alternate? Is there a back up generator? Does the generator have an auto transfer switch? Is the generator of adequate size? If both pumps fail, or the generator dies how long till the sewer over flows? Is there an auto dialer to notify someone if power is lost, pumps die, high level in lift station, generator dies.

I think you get the idea

And I always keep a replacement pump in the shop.
