Wimpy's Plumbing & Air - Sewage Pumps

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.

We Install Sewage Pumps

While it is highly unlikely that any homeowner will have a burning desire to get his or her hands dirty and install a sewage pump on his or her own, we must make a point of saying that this is a job that only a professional plumber can handle. Our team will determine precisely what size of sewage pump that you need, and we’ll install it properly so that you won’t have to worry about it failing to perform as intended. For obvious reasons, your really need to know that your sewage pump is going to do its job.

We Repair and Maintain Sewage Pumps

Sewage pumps are straightforward devices, and they do not require much in the way of maintenance. It is important that proper oil levels are maintained and that bearings and motors are in good shape, but overall a sewage pump will operate quite a while without issue. We are happy to inspect your sewage pump on a routine basis to ensure its proper operation.

If you do encounter problems with your sewage pump, we strongly recommend that you take the pump out of commission until we have completed the necessary repairs. Running a damaged sewage pump only increases the likelihood of serious damages developing. Should sewage pump replacement be needed at any point, a dependable Sarasota plumber can handle that as well. Give us a call with any questions that you may have.
