Sump pumps and sewage pumps are two different types of septic systems. A sump pump is used in residential or commercial properties where flooding or water infiltration occurs. Sewage pumps are often necessary in structures that have a basement bathroom beneath the sewer line.
A sump pump removes unwanted standing water in areas such as boiler rooms or basements. A sewage pump, also called a sewage ejector or sewage grinder pump, transports household waste water to a septic tank or city sewage system.
A constant consistent water flow is essential to a properly functioning septic system. A sewage pump can be used when waste water pressure doesn't create a fast enough flow rate of at least 2 feet per second.
A sump pump should not be used for processing water debris or solid items larger than fine soil. Secure sump pit openings and use a radon cover for sump pits where radon is a problem.
