Sewage and Grinder PumpsLondon Pump Supply Ltd. has offered dependable service and repair for sewage and grinder pumps to London, Ontario and throughout Southwestern Ontario since 1992.

Sewage and Grinder Pumps and How They Work

Sewage pumps are a submersible pump that protects the motor with a sealed compartment that can be submersed into the liquid that is being pumped. Most sewage pump motors are electric and can be used in basements or any below-ground level area, where sewage drains need support or have to run uphill.

Depending on the type of sewage or liquid being pumped or the surrounding area of the pits, the motors can be ordered in explosion proof (i.e. oil, gasoline, municipal wastewater, etc.)

Features of Sewage and Grinder Pumps

A grinder pump will shred and chop sewage so it is ground to a fine slurry that can be pumped through a 1-1/4’’ line. Most grinder pumps come with 1-1/4” discharge . Sewage pumps however uses a “deep vane” or “vortex” impeller to pass wastewater solids of 2” and up and come in discharge sizes of 2” and up.
Many industrial applications run a duplex system (2 sewage or grinder pumps) which requires a control panel to alternate the pumps and has a high water alarm.
An alarm is important to ensure that the user be notified of any required maintenance or repairs, with the plumbing shutting down until the work is complete.
