Sewage Ejector Pumps and Sewage Grinder Pumps in Scottsdale
Sewage Ejectors and Sewage Grinders are not the same. It is often mixed up by customers and not unusual to assume they are sump pumps also. In any case, both sewage ejectors and sewage grinders are a submersible solid sewage pump (but not a sump pump).
The best way to figure out what you have is to know the purpose:
The sewage ejector moves sewage. It ejects your sewage to another location: septic tank or gravity flow sewer main. Ejectors are frequently found where sewage needs to move from below grade to grade, or the main level.
The sewage grinder cuts sewage. It grinds your sewage into slurry, or mush. If your property is connected to a pressurized sewer main then chances are you have one of these. A grinder assists in making sure waste is turned into a more liquid form in order to enter the sewer main.
Sewage ejectors are better used with septic tanks while sewage grinders are better used with sewer mains. Both can support pumping a very long distance but where the sewage will end up is the important factor. There are instances when either could be used but we recommend consulting with a knowledgeable residential wastewater technician.
Ejectors and Grinders are a plumbing and mechanical system combined. Plumbers need to have sufficient knowledge in mechanics in order to properly service submersible sewage pumps.
