What separates sewage pumps from ordinary sump pumps is their ability to handle solids. This helps sewage pumps push waste to your sewage system or septic tank. If you experience a constant sewage backup, you may need to replace your sewage pump. And if you’re building a new septic or sewage system form the ground up, you’ll need to do your research to determine which sewage pump is best for you. Here is a look at some sewage pump options that are available.
“Effluent” is the gray wastewater that remains in a septic tank after the solids settle out. Polylok™ effluent pumps are available in 4/10 and ½ HP sizes and include all of the features required for residential and light commercial sanitary waste disposal. High-pressure effluent pumps are also available for processed wastewater systems as well as for aeration, cistern, and irrigation.
As waste from water-using household appliances such as toilets, bathtubs, and washing machines flows through your home’s plumbing, it will settle into the grinder pump’s holding tank. When the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on and grind the waste into a fine slurry before pumping it to the central sewer system or septic tank. The Polylok™ 2 HP centrifugal grinder pump (115V and 230V) is designed for use in pressure sewer application or any piping network.
If you have a high pressure filtered sewer system, submersible pumps deliver the performance and dependability you need. High head multi-stage submersible pumps (available in 10, 20, and 30 GPM models) are quieter, cooler, and draw less power than traditional sewage pumps. Submersible pumps can be used in a residential, commercial, and agricultural application.
