With systems such as a grinder pump, most homeowners have the luxury of not needing to think about their home’s sewage removal system.

At David LeRoy Plumbing, Inc., our expert plumbers are available 24/7 to help with grinder pump repairs so you can go back to not worrying about your sewage system.
What Is a Grinder Pump?
You’ll find your grinder pump at the low spot of your house or in your yard. This pump works much like a garbage disposal that is designed for sewage. Your wastewater first gathers in a holding tank. Once the waste reaches a certain level, the pump will begin to grind the waste. After grinding the waste, the pump will generate pressure to dispose of the wastewater to the public sewer line.
Do I Need a Grinder Pump?
Grinder pumps are typically in homes that are located below the public sewer line. A grinder pump is necessary to prevent sewage from flowing back to the house and causing contamination. If your house is higher than the sewer line, you most likely use a gravity-based system to send water to the sewer system.
Signs You Need a Grinder Pump Replacement
Like most appliances, your grinder pump may need repairs or replacement. A grinder pump uses electricity, which makes it susceptible to damage if the power goes out. The motor may also eventually burn out after many years of use.
If you notice that your toilets are clogging frequently or a smell coming from your drains, it may be time for a grinder pump replacement. At David LeRoy Plumbing, Inc., our experts are available to help you with grinder pump repair or replacement in your area.
