The Uses of Sewer Pumps and How It Works

March 28, 2023

A sewer pump transports sediments and liquids from one location to another. Regarding household sewage, it is composed of soft solids with a diameter of up to 2 inches. Sewage is discharged from the sewage basin into a septic tank or sewer system. The sewer pump is installed at the bottom of your sewage basin. In most circumstances, the pump is submerged, which is why it is referred to as a submersible sewer pump. There are three types of sewer pumps: manual, dual mode, and automated.

Manual or Automated Sewer Pumps

The piggyback connector on the dual-mode sewer pump allows your pump to be either manual or automated. The manual pump skips the switch and is hooked straight into a socket. On the other hand, the automated pump is connected via the floating switch, which only operates when the switch is turned on.

Using a manual sewer pump in a sewage basin is not suggested due to the risk of sewage overflow. Sewer pumps employ centrifugal pumps, which allow solids to move through without blocking the pump. When you switch on the pump, the motor turns the impeller, creating pressure that pushes water up to the impeller and into the discharge pipe. The pump is driven by an electric rod that extends from 10 to 25 feet. The pump house is composed of cast iron and is designed for long-term usage; it includes an impeller and a motor.

Sewer Pump Types

Effluent Pumps

These pumps are often installed in a small on-site installation. They pump the wastewater from the septic tanks. The effluent is a clear liquid with solids emerging from the septic tank. It can pump more effectively and at greater levels than conventional sewer pumps. This is due to the pump's inability to handle solid sewage waste.

Pumps For Solid Handling

They are also known as sewer ejector pumps since they are used to drive untreated sewage. Most pumps cannot handle raw sewage because it includes too many particles. Consequently, this solid handling pump is suitable for dealing with raw sewage.

Pumps For Grinders

This pump is like solid handling because it can push raw sewage. The spinning blades of the grinder pump distinguish it from the solid handling pump. The revolving blades function similarly to garbage grinders, which grind and chop materials into smaller bits before pumping sewage.

The Advantages of Sewer Pumps

Sewer pumps remove water from the crawlspace and basement and securely deposit it in your home's wastewater system. The sump pump installation is hard, even though it is quite easy.

Mildew And Mould Are Less Likely to Grow

This is caused by the constant wetness of your basement owing to stagnant pools, which contributes to mildew and mould growth. Moulds and mildew harm your health and damage your building materials.

Damage Avoidance

Prevent damage from flooding caused by severe rains, which causes your basement to flood. You may avoid calamities caused by basement flooding by installing a sewer pump.

Hazard Mitigation

Water short-circuits appliances in your basement, such as water heaters, heating systems, and washing machines, lowering the chance of a fire. As a result, water can ignite a fire, which is extremely dangerous and devastating. A sewer pump helps keep water away from equipment that might cause a fire in your home.
