|Sewer Pump Systems
Sewer Systems can be unique in the Lake Chelan Valley. There are numerous homes in the Lake Chelan Valley that do not have the luxery of gravity flow sewer systems. Because of the geography of Lake Chelan, homes can be located where sewer must be pumped uphill to discharge it.
There are two main types of sewer pumps; the first is a grinder sewer pump and the second is an effluent sewer pump. The grider sewer pump does just what it's name states. It is a primary pump that grinds larger particles as it pumps to its destination. The effluent pump is a secondary sewer pump that pumps dirty water and smaller particles.
Make sure you need a sewer pump; gravity is better. As with anything mechanical it will eventually need to be repaired or replaced.
