What Exactly is a grinder pump?
A grinder pump breaks up and grinds up wastewater that is produced in your drainage system while sending the wastewater it into the public sewer system. A grinder pump is placed in a tank that is buried in an outdoor location on a property were this tank provides wastewater holding storage capacity. When water is used in the building, this wastewater flows into that tank. When the wastewater in the tank reaches a pre-set level, the grinder pump automatically turns on grinding the waste and pumps that out of the tank to the on-site sewer service line and into the public sewer system. A grinder pump will normally run for one or two minutes and automatically turn off when the tank is emptied. The pump is powered by electricity and is connected to a control panel by an electric meter.
Why Some Businesses in NYC Need Grinder Pumps
Since wastewater flows by gravity from a business' on-property sewer service line to a public sewer main where wastewater flows to specific treatment plants, the wastewater is cleaned, disinfected and safely returned to the environment. However, because of elevation, gravity may not work in all instances. In situations where a business sewer service line leaves the building at a lower elevation than the public sewer main, a grinder pump is necessary to grind and pump wastewater to the main.
What can I do to protect my grinder pump in NYC?
A properly maintained grinder pump should be able to handle wastewater from the kitchen, bathroom, laundry, with no problem. Harsh chemicals and substances can adversely impact a grinder pump and may cause safety hazards. We advice that you check the labels on all chemicals before using and disposing.
As a good rule of thumb, never pour the following items down drains or down toilets:
- Grease (extract from cooking meat fats, oils, shortening, butter, margarine, food scraps, sauces and dairy products)
- Explosive or flammable material
- Kitty Litter
- Aquarium gravel
- Strong Chemicals or toxic, caustic or poisonous substances
- Degreasing solvents
- Diapers, feminine products, or cloth of any kind
- Fuel or lubricating oil, paint thinner of antifreeze
- Plastic objects
- Seafood Shells.
