Care and Maintenance of a Grinder Pump
What should I do if the alarm is going off?
How do I know if I have one?
What is a Grinder Pump?
A grinder pump is part of a low pressure sewer system. Wastewater exits the residence or business and is collected in a tank equipped with a grinder pump. Once the water in the collection tank reaches the high water level, the pump discharges to the low pressure sewer system.
You will most likely have a collection tank lid in your yard.
There will be a control panel
mounted on the building or near the tank lid.
Your monthly bill will
indicate an additional
charge for a grinder
Discontinue water use in the residence or business. The collection tank has limited capacity and will overflow if water use continues.
Grinder pumps are designed to handle sanitary sewer waste and not items that would be considered trash.
Items listed below are considered trash or environmental hazardous materials and should NOT be disposed of through internal building plumbing (sink drains, floor drains and toilets). These items can damage the pump and discharge systems.
Products that should NOT be put into the sewer system include, but not limited to:
Feminine hygiene products such as sanitary pads or tampons
Fibrous material such as baby wipes, baby disposable diapers, etc.
Cloths such as cleaning rags or cleaning wipes
Birth control products
Food grease, powered detergent, glass
Environmental hazardous wastes such as paint, paint thinners, cleaning fluids, automotive oils, pesticides, herbicides, etc.
