How A Grinder Pump Works
A grinder pump is a wastewater pump that operates similar to how a garbage disposal functions and are generally used with septic and sewer systems. Many businesses require them due to materials that are introduced into the wastewater as a byproduct of the operations. These pumps are also quite common on residential properties that are connected to a public sewer line. If a residence has a grinder pump, then wastewater from toilets, washing machines, bathtubs, showers, sinks, and so forth will flow through the local sewer pipes into a holding tank. When the contents of that tank reach a set level, the grinder pump will activate and grind the contents into a fine slurry. When the desired consistency has been achieved, the system will then force it out into the public sewer system or into a septic tank.
Types of Grinder Pumps
As the leading grinder pump repair company in southeastern Pennsylvania, we service all manner of grinder pumps that are used throughout this region. There are three core types of grinder pumps: single-stage centrifugal, two-stage centrifugal, and semi-positive displacement. A single-stage centrifugal grinder pump has a single impeller that spins on a shaft, which is powered by a motor that creates the pumping action. Wastewater is pumped through cutters that grind the material. A two-stage centrifugal grinder pump is similar but has two impellers, which makes it better suited to applications that have a discharge height between 90 and 140 feet. If the sewage scenario involves more than 140 feet of lift range, then you need a semi-positive displacement grinder pump. This setup has a motor that turns a stainless-steel screw-type rotor that spins within a rubber stator, which creates the pumping action.
