A sewage pump is used in transferring sewage solids and liquids from one place to another. The sewage pump is usually installed to the lowest point of your sewage basin. The sewage pump is submerged most of the time and hence some people refer to it as a submersible sewage pump. These pumps can either be manual, automatic, or dual mode. The dual mode sewage pumps contain a piggyback plug that either allows you to use the pump manually so that it bypasses the switch and plumbed directly in the socket or as an automatic device where your plugin your sewage pump via the floating switch and will only work once you activate the switch. It is advisable not to use manual sewage pumps in the sewage basin because of the possibility of an overflow.
Types of Sewage Pumps
Effluent Pumps: In most cases, effluent pumps are used I the small on-site systems. These sewage pumps are designed to pump effluent, or the effluent that is flowing out of your septic tank. The effluent is a relatively clear liquid because the solid materials have developed out in your septic tank. The effluent sewage pumps are more efficient and can pump high levels than the other forms of sewage tanks because these systems don’t handle solid sewage wastes.
Solid Handling Pumps: The other name for these pumps is sewage ejector and they are designed for pumping raw sewage. The raw sewage normally contains several solids and you only need solid-handling pumps to handle this nature of task.
Grinder Pumps: Grinder pumps resemble solid-handling pumps as they can pump raw sewage. The only difference is that grinder pumps have rotating blades that will cut and grind all the solid wastes into tiny particles before pumping the sewage. You can choose one depending on the kind of waste you wish to pump out of your septic tank.
