Sewage pumps are used for pumping wastewater from the lowest point of your property to the septic tank or municipal sewer line. This will only be necessary when your home or property has is the lowest point at an elevation lower than that of the municipal sewer line or where the septic tank is installed. Should this be the case with your property, you will need a sewage pump installed by the professional to effectively get wastewater away from your property.

Don’t just go about hiring anyone you meet on the street as it may turn out to be zero work that you are doing. If not properly installed, your pump will fail even before it serves you for that long. Many factors are also considered before deciding on which sewage pump to install. For instance, we have to assess the property with the aim of undemanding its elevation, average daily water usage, and the sewer line pipe gauges if they are already installed. Only then that we can turn our attention to the pump size and model to go for as will be dictated by the data found during the assessment.
In selecting the pump size, we need to know the average daily load that it will handle. This is estimated from the gallons of water that your family uses every day. The right side of your pump is particularly important so that we don’t overload or underload the pump for maximum efficiency.
Underloading a sewage pump means that you are underutilizing the resources that you have so much dearly paid for. Overloading a pump has an effect on its lifespan. It will not serve you as it is supposed to as overload causes deterioration of the system parts much faster.
How does a sewage pump work?
How the pump works is very simple. We are only going to discuss how the pump works to empty the wastewater from the basin and not the engineering in its internal structure. A sewage pump is placed in a basin and its function controlled by the level of wastewater in this basin. Depending on the level of water, the pump will turn on or off as appropriate. This means that it has a sensor that detects the level of water then feeds back this information into the controller. When the water level rises to the maximum, the pump starts and will only stop when the level goes down to or below the minimum.
So, if you may ask whether the pump should be continuously running or not, the exact answer would be a big NO. It should be alternating between on and off depending on how much water you use in a given day. When you notice that your pump is running nonstop, then get our experts to check it and repair it. After your pump is installed, you should be maintaining it as you will be advised by our experts.
