Grinder Pumps

Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Water-Clear-Up offers emergency and non-emergency grinder pump repair and replacement. A grinder pump is a wastewater pumping device often associated with sewage and septic pump applications. Wastewater typically from fixtures, toilets, kitchen sinks, bathtubs, washing machines, etc. flows through the sewer pipe into the grinder pumps holding tank. Once the wastewater inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump will turn on and grind the waste into a fine slurry, then pumps it to the central sewer system or septic tank. Grinder pumps have the option to be installed in the yard and differs from a sump pump or effluent pump.

There are two types of grinder pumps, semi-positive displacement and centrifugal. Grinder pumps are a type of submersible sewage (septic) pump that has cutting teeth incorporated onto the impeller to grind the sewage for pressure sewer applications. The discharge piping can be smaller since the wastewater is ground up to a liquid, high head conditions are a specific use for this design of pump.

Features

Grinder pumps have grinding teeth on the inlet of the impeller, submersible motor.

Applications

Grinder pumps are used in residential, commercial and industrial pressure sewer systems, usually where high head conditions exist for sewage.

Recommended Media

Advantages
