The Challenge

A sewage pump transports waste material, such as human urine and feces, from a sewage basin to a septic tank or a sewer system. This pump is installed as low as possible on the bottom of the sewage basin. Different pumps are used for residential, municipal, and industrial applications. In residential applications, small submersible pumps are used that handle soft solids up to around 2 inches in diameter.

The difference between sump pumps and sewage pumps is the application and design. Sump pumps are used to get rid of unwanted water collected in basements. Sewage pumps in residential applications pump out fluids and liquids from bathrooms.

Our Solution
