Sewage Pump Services in Boston, MA

Cooling Unlimited, Inc. - Sewage Pump

Most homeowners don’t really want to think about where their raw sewage goes, and we don’t blame you: it’s not a pleasant thing to ruminate about. However, it is important to know that your home’s effluent is being expelled and disposed of properly. Plumbing systems rely heavily on the natural laws of gravity to draw wastewater away from your home, but some homes have no choice but to be built below the level of the sewer or septic tank. In these cases, it is necessary to use a sewage pump to properly expel effluent from your home.

Just as sewer and septic lines require the work of a trained plumbing expert, so, too, does a sewage pump. Our plumbing pros can install a sewage pump in your home, repair and maintain your existing one so that it works as needed, or replace one that is failing. The removal of wastewater for your home is too important to leave in the hands of a person or company that doesn’t know what it’s doing. Instead, call the experts who bring over 25 years’ worth of experience to every job: Cooling Unlimited, Inc..

What Is a Sewage Pump?

There are a lot of pumps out there for your home and plumbing system: sump pumps, ejector pumps, even laundry pumps. So what is a sewage pump? Simply put, a sewage pump is a pump that has one job: to pump effluent from your home’s sewage basin up into the sewer or septic line for proper disposal. Typically sewage pumps are submersible, and they reside right in the sewage basin. Not the most pleasant place to reside, but this is another reason why you’ll want to leave all work pertaining to your home’s sewage pump to an expert.

How Does a Sewage Pump Work?

Sewage pumps are placed on the bottom of your sewage basin or septic tank. The intake for the pump will always be located facing the bottom of the basin or septic tank because the pump expels both solid and liquid waste. The trigger for the pump to activate is just like that of a sump pump: a float is used to trigger the pump’s action when the effluent level reaches a certain pre–set height. The float is attached to an arm that will trigger the pump to turn on once the float reaches that pre–set height, and the pump will operate until the float descends to a second pre–set level that indicates the basin or septic tank has emptied as needed. Then the pump will automatically turn off.
