-pperron- does not use lags to correct for serial correlation in the Dickey-Fuller regressions and instead uses a Newey-West type robust variance-covariance matrix to calulate the standard errors. However, please see [TS] pperron documentation for cases when the Phillips-Perron test is not applicable. If you are going to use -dfuller-, you might look at -varsoc- for lag-length selection. You also do not specify a trend or drift terms in your -dfuller-. You need to be sure that this is indeed the case, a very good preliminary strategy is to visualise the data to see if there is a deterministic trend in it.
