Sewage pumps differ from regular sump pumps because sewage pumps handle solid waste, not just liquids. If you currently have a septic system that tends to back up frequently, it may be time to consider a new sewage pump. The most common application for sewage pumps is for basement bathrooms and septic systems.
Basement bathrooms are typically located below the sewage line under your house, so you need a pump that can effectively pump solid waste and water up and out of the house against the gravity flow. For this reason, sewage pumps offer a higher output compared to regular sump pumps. Sewage pumps are designed to run less frequently than a sump pump, but with more power to expel debris.
Septic systems include a sewage pump that breaks down waste and pumps it out of your home into a septic tank. Malfunctioning sewage pumps and septic system backups can be extremely problematic any time of the year. Investing in a high-quality sewage pump and maintaining it regularly will give you peace of mind that you have a reliable, functioning pump for the years to come.

Low-pressure, gravity-independent, contour-following sewage collection systems were pioneered by Environment One. E/One Sewer® systems have proven to be an economical and effective method of transporting sewage in otherwise difficult land areas, such as flat, wet, rocky, and hilly terrain.
At the heart of an E/One Sewer® is the grinder pump, developed by Environment One. These units accept household sanitary waste, grind it into a fine slurry, and pressurize it to permit transport through small-diameter pipes. E/One Sewer Systems serve over one million end-user customers daily.
