More information about grinder pumps:

Grinder pumps are used to grind up sewage solids. They are similar to chopper pumps, but while chopper pumps generally operate within a waste water treatment plant, grinder pumps are used in buildings or homes. They process the building’s outgoing wastewater and move it to an external sewer source. In many cases, this is done so that the sewage can be pumped a long distance to the central sewage treatment plant.

There are two main types of grinder pumps:

  • Positive displacement pumps - create constant pressure and are useful where there are frequent anomalies or gas pockets coming through the pump’s input.
  • Centrifugal pumps - accelerate the wastewater to a rate of flow high enough to move it the required distance.

Both positive displacement and centrifugal grinder pumps contain a chamber that grinds the wastewater into slurry before sending it through the pump.
