What Is a Sewage Pump and How Do They Work?

Before we explain why sewage pumps need repairs, we want to first explain what a sewage pump is and how do they work?

Sewage Pumps are key in the movement of sewage liquids and solids from one location to another.

Residential sewage pumps transfer the foul waste from the sewage basin to the sewage system or to the septic tank. A sewage pumps otherwise known as wasterwater pumps can be used for a range of applications.

Waterwater pumps can be used for both residential and commercial properties and whether you want to have a basement with its bathroom or using a cellar for storage using a sewage pump system is the perfect option for stopping sewage problems.

Sewage pumps have to be able to move solids through the pump as opposed to sewage grinders that cut solids into smaller pieces so that they can then easily pass through the impeller and discharge pipes.

In both cases though, there is the potential for the impeller to become clogged as a result of our modern lifestyles and our waste disposal habits.

Why Do Sewage Pumps Need Repairs?

While sewage pumps have their many advantages problems can start to occur with sewage pumps after a period of time which is why servicing and maintenance are important.

There are a number of reasons why sewage pumps need repairs. One of the main issues for sewage pumps is that the pump will not turn on.

If the pump will not turn on then it is more than likely that it is because of one of the following reasons: the impeller has become jammed, the sewage pump does not have enough electricity to power up, or it is has fully broken down.

Another common fault is if the pump is not turning off. This can often be a fault with the float switch or that if the float switch is stuck in the wrong position.

A clear sign that the sewage pump is not turning off is that you may start to see that the electricity bills become higher than they usually are.

Another common sign that homeowners see if their sewage pump system is not working correctly is that the toilet will start backing up.

This could occur if the pump becomes blocked, if there is a problem in the sump pump area or if there are issues with the septic tank.
