Sewage Ejector and Grinder Pumps
Sewage Ejector and Grinder Pumps are devices that are used when toilets are located below the sewer line – either public or private. When this happens, waste has to be elevated up to the sewer line so that it can be discharged into the sewer. This is separate from a dewatering sump pump, which is used to pass spherical objects that are only up to ½” in diameter.
These sewage ejector and grinder pumps are typically used in a home’s basement, since the main sewage line is typically higher than the basement’s plumbing.
Contrary to popular belief, the sewage ejector grinder pumps do not grind up the sewage as it passes through. In fact, most sewage ejector grinder pumps have only been available for large-scale commercial use, and have only recently been on the market for residential and light commercial usage.
New residential grinders are much smaller than their older counterparts and will fit easily into a small sewage ejector pit. It uses 120v power, which makes it ideal for home usage. The benefits of having a sewage ejector grinder pump for your home is that paper and other objects that get flushed into the toilet are grinded down to a fine pulp to help flow through the sewage system more efficiently. Foreign objects that sometimes end up in sewage pipes, such as towels, diapers and hygiene products will also be ground up, allowing it to be safely discharged into the drainage system without clogging up the pipes.

Our 30+ years in business and our trusted technicians can help you figure out what options are best for your sewage system and how to safely and effectively install them.
