Fort Collins Septic Tank Services, Installation, & Repairs have designers and engineers who can install and repair your sewage pumps. A sewage pump is needed if you want to push your sewage out of your septic tank to the drain field or municipal drain systems that are at an elevation compared to your property’s altitude. You may also need a pump to push your sewage to the septic tank for plumbing systems that are in the basement rooms or underground rooms. A septic tank can also be uniquely placed at an elevation compared to your general plumbing system. Your plumber should tell you the need to position the tank where it is before doing that because it should be done when absolutely necessary.
What is the difference between the sewage pump and grinder pump?
We are not going to discuss the structural design differences or their operations, but we will only explore their differences in terms of their use in plumbing. As we have already stated, sewage pumps are used to give your sewage pressure (head) to move into the elevated septic tank, drain field, or municipal drainage system. The grinder pump, on the other hand, is used in turning your solid waste into liquid so that it can smoothly flow through the pipes to the destinations.
Not so many wastes require grinding as they can naturally decompose in a septic tank through microbial actions. However, if you don’t have enough bacteria and enzymes to facilitate this process, the solid waste may fail to decompose thereby blocking the sewer lines when forced through the pipes. Enzymes and bacteria in your septic tank can die depending on the detergents and other chemicals from your laundry room and kitchen that you pour down the drain pipe. You can minimize this by using detergents that are tagged safe for septic tanks. If you don’t have enough experience in this, then ask your detergent supplier.
Whatever the reason, you will need to hire a professional to help you in installing or repairing your sewage pump when malfunctions. The fail of a sewage pump should not be taken lightly. This means that you will no longer be using the restrooms in the basement and other rooms below. You will never access your basement laundry room. It will be worse if your home is one of the rare properties that have a septic tank at an elevation higher than the plumbing systems. The entire home can get messy with toilets overflowing all over the flow. The smell and the sight are just unbearable!
