Sewage pumps are a major part of any water system. They are responsible for transferring sewage liquids and solids from various locations to the intended destination. For residential applications, sewage pumps are pumping out the solids and liquids from the sewage basin into the city’s sewer system. In other instances, they may be pumping out to a septic tank.
These pumps are almost always submersible pumps, while they come in different modes. Some are automatic, while others are manual. Some even feature a dual mode, depending on what setting is necessary.
Most often used in a smaller system that is on-site, effluent pumps are designed to pump out the relatively clear liquid that is part of the sewage system. The solids are taken out using other pumps.
Compared to other sewage pumps, effluent pumps are known for being very efficient in their operations. They are also capable of pumping out a high amount of liquid. Choosing the best effluent pump for your operations can make a huge difference to the overall performance and longevity of the sewage system.
When replacing an older pump or installing one in a relatively new system, it is important to find the right size. With replacements, it is an easier process as you would choose a pump with similar horsepower to the one you replaced.
Some important figures to notice with effluent pumps are the gallons per hour rating. You do not want to get a pump that has a much lower gallons per hour rating, compared to the one you replaced. Higher is better, but one in the same ballpark will serve you well.
If you had issues with the first effluent pump within a few months, there is a chance you choose one with too little horsepower. Go for a more powerful model with a higher gallons per hour rating.
Effluent pumps are available with different types of housing material. Some are made with stainless steel, others have brass, while there are cast iron housing pumps that have even more durability than the previous two.
If you are choosing an effluent pump for a commercial or industrial site where heavy use is expected, go for the cast iron effluent pumps. These are more expensive, but they will give you the longevity and ruggedness you need. For other applications, both stainless steel and brass will work very well.
For a more economical option that is not intended for heavy use, thermoplastic pumps are a good option.
