Sewage pumps can fail due to:
- Improper installation
- Insufficient capacity
- Frozen or clogged lines
- Lack of regular maintenance
What's the Difference Between a Sewage Pump & a Sump Pump?
Getting the right service begins with the right terminology, and sump pumps and septic pumps are confused to most. Sump pumps aren't part of your sewage system. In a home, sump pumps are traditionally found in the basement where they help to prevent flooding. When ground water surrounding your home's foundation reaches a certain level, the sump pump carries the water up and out. Depending on the season and location, sump pumps can run frequently or hardly at all.
Sewage or septic pumps are usually used in basement bathrooms - or any situation where sewage must be pumped to an elevated septic tank or sewer line. Grinder pumps help to eliminate solid waste before it is pumped to its destination. In the case of both sump and septic pumps, both must receive regular maintenance to maximize performance.
