Generally speaking, residential sewage systems depend upon gravity in order to remove sewage from the property. There are certain instances in which gravity alone may not be sufficient for the removal of waste and wastewater from one’s home, though. When this is the case, a sewage pump may be required in order to facilitate the process.

What Exactly Is a Sewage Pump?
A sewage pump is a type of pump that, not unlike a sump pump, serves one specific purpose. Rather than pumping floodwater out of your home’s lower levels, though, a sewage pump is used in order to move effluent through a sewer system. Generally, the sewage pump will be installed in a sewer basin, excavated at the lowest point of the drainage area.
Submersible pumps are installed in the bottom of the basin or septic tank, if a septic system is being used, and the intake is placed at the bottom of the basin, so that as much waste and wastewater as possible can be removed. It is vital that an appropriately sized pump is used, so that the system can handle the amount of sewage that will require transport.
