Small-scale sewage pumping is normally done by a submersible pump. This became popular in the early 1960s, when a guide-rail system was developed to lift the submersible pump out of the pump station for repair, and ended the dirty and sometimes dangerous task of sending people into the sewage or wet pit.A sewage pump is used to transfer sewage liquids and solids from one place to another. Usually, in residential applications, sewage includes soft solids up to 2″ in diameter is pumped from a sewage basin to a sewer system or a septic tank. A sewage pump is installed at the lowest point of the sewage basin.
A sump pump is a machine designed for getting rid of water from flooding or other excess water in a structure's basement. By contrast, sewage pumps are designed to remove not just water but also waste and other small materials from a building to the septic tank or the sewage system.This is achieved using powerful water jets that break up the waste and then force it up and into your septic tank or sewage system. A good sewage ejector pump should last at least 7-10 years. However, with proper installation and routine care, your pump can last 30 years or more.
