These pumps are designed to pump raw sewage wastewater, usually from a pump station in a basement or just outside of the house, to your septic tank or aerobic treatment system.

EJECTOR PUMPS OR GRINDER PUMPS.... WHICH DO YOU CHOOSE?
PLEASE NOTE: Grinder pumps must be used in scenarios where there will be at least a minimum of 30 feet of head pressure put on them. If they do not have to pump against at least this much back pressure, the motor will begin to spin at an extremely high rate of RPMs causing it to burn up fairly quickly. Therefore, if you are not pumping into a shared sewer main or have less than 30 feet of head, you do want a Sewage Ejector pump not a Sewage Grinder pump.
You should only use a Sewage Grinder Pump when one the following apply to your application:
- When pumping to a pressurized sewer main.
- When pumping a very long distance (1000 feet or more)
- You have a high vertical distance to lift the water (minimum of 30 feet)
Below are the scenarios when a Sewage Ejector Pump will work best:
- When pumping sewage to a septic tank.
- When pumping sewage to a gravity sewer main.
- When pumping sewage short distances (750 feet or less)
- You have a low vertical distance to lift the water (under 70 feet)
In summary, not all sewage handling pumps are Grinder Pumps and a Sewage Grinder pump is not always necessary to pump raw sewage. In fact, in most cases a Sewage Ejector pump is the much better option. And, there are certain scenarios when you could use either type.
