The grinder pump is an essential part of any home plumbing system. A grinder pump is basically a larger version of a kitchen garbage disposal, where it granulates wastewater from your household toilets, showers, and washing machines to be pumped into the public sewage system. If a house is below the public sewer line, grinder pumps are needed to pump up wastewater to the main. The grinder pump is located in a tank underground, so if you see wastewater in your yard, call A O Dowd Plumbing Inc. at (909) 684-1915 in Fontana, CA for grinder pump repair.
Grinder Pump Repair and Installation
Grinder pumps can become clogged with improper materials like grease, kitty litter, or plastic objects being poured down the drain. The outside air vent can also become clogged from natural sources like grass or rainwater draining into the grinder pump basin, slowing down the pumping rates and leading to sewage backups. When the house is below public sewer lines, the grinder pump can become worn out with overuse. Also, the pump has to be buried deep enough underground below the frost line. A common grinder pump problem is freezing because the pump was not buried deep enough and frost was able to damage the pipes and pump. Other issues of grinder pump damage are blockage from small debris and clotting from larger debris that should not have been flushed down the toilet, like diapers. No one wants a sewage overflow in their yard. Call A O Dowd Plumbing Inc. at (909) 684-1915 in Fontana, CA where we can provide grinder pump repair or installation.
