Grinder Pumps

Grinder Pumps

Alton Pumps Grinder pumps are ideal for handling tough waste in domestic and commercial applications. The grinder pump has blades that grind the raw sewage into a slurry before passing it through the discharge line. For difficult applications that are prone to clogging and require more pressure the grinder pump is the ideal application.  At Alton Pump Services, we take pride in our ability to offer whatever kind of grinder or sewage pump you may need for your specific project.

A grinder pump is used to pump sewage from a building to the sewerage system if building’s plumbing is at a lower grade than the sewer main. They can also be used when there is not enough slope to allow sewage to gravity flow to the system. Wet waste from toilets, sinks and washing machines flows through the pipes into the grinder pump’s holding tank. When waste inside the tank reaches a specific level, the pump turns on, then grinds the waste into a fine slurry, and pump it to the sewer system.

Do I need a Grinder Pump?

A Grinder Pump is used when:

  1. Pumping to a pressurised sewer main.
  2. Waste is pumped a very long distance (750 feet or more)
  3. Sewage is required to be pumped a vertical distance (minimum of 30 feet)
