Like an over-sized garbage disposal, grinder pumps shred and cut through debris contained in your home's waste water.
They feature a steel blade that grinds most solids to a pulp to help prevent blockage.
Grinder pumps can also be used for high head and very long horizontal discharge runs.
If you're having trouble with your sewage pump clogging, a grinder pump may be just what you need.
|Service Industry Use |
Bars, restaurants, and hotels benefit from grinder pumps in another way. They also use them for the scraps that come from industrial-sized sinks.
Busy restaurants and bars don't have time to scrape the scraps before dumping dishes in the sink. So a variety of trash ends up in the drain. Anything from food to plastic forks and napkins.
These businesses use grinder pumps to clear the mess out of their drainage pit. Rags, gloves, and lime peels can all be ground up and pumped out with the help of a grinder pump.
