What Is a Sewage Pump?

You are probably familiar with sump pumps, and you may be familiar with ejector pumps, but there is another pump you should know: the sewage pump. These pumps are submersible, typically residing in a sewer basin pit. If you have a septic system, it is common to place the sewage pump in your septic tank. The purpose of a sewage pump is to effectively push effluent, including solids, to your sewer, or in the case of a septic system, through the septic process. The sewer basin is located at the lowest point needing drainage. Like a sump pump, sewage pumps are equipped with floats that trigger the pumping process when the effluent reaches a certain level in the sewer basin, or, in the case of a septic tank, when the effluent in the tank reaches a certain level.

Does My Sewer Pump Need to Be Sized?

In a word: yes, it does. Not having the correctly–sized sewer pump can mean that your effluent is moved as needed. The first thing to know about sizing a sewage pump is that they are sized according to horsepower; most homes need a pump between .5 and 1 horsepower. But knowing how much horsepower you’ll need is based on the amount of gallons of wastewater your home outputs per hour. General numbers on this range from 5,000 to 8,000 gallons per hour. The trained experts at Milton Frank Plumbing & Cooling can help you assess these numbers and determine what size sewage pump you need for your home in Spring, TX.
