Sump pumps and sewage pumps are two elements of your home that you may not think about until something goes wrong. Should you have issues with either, our team at Westview Plumbing is available. We offer not only sump pump & sewage pump installation & repair service near Des Moines but also excellent customer service.
A sump pump is a type of submersible pump that gets installed inside a sump pit – some properties will have one installed at the lowest point of a basement or crawlspace. As groundwater surrounds your home’s foundation, it gets channeled via a drain system in the foundation. Water makes its way through the drainpipes via perforations before getting diverted into the sump pit. With the help of a float switch, the sump pump gets triggered and starts removing water to send it into a dry well, storm drain, or detention pone.
Like sump pumps, a sewage pump is a submersible pump that moves wastewater from low areas but out into a sewer main or septic tank. These units pump out sewage materials containing sludge, human waste, and solids as a way to keep your property odor-free and clean.
While both sump pumps and sewage pumps are found in a basement or crawlspace, sump pumps do not handle human waste and sludge, such as a sewage pump does. There are three common kinds of sewage pumps available, including:
- Grinder pumps
- Sewage ejector pumps
- Effluent pumps
