All About Grinder Pumps

What Are They?

Think of a grinder pump as a garbage disposal for your sewage. It not only helps break down wastewater sewage, but it works to push everything out to the main city sewer line that leads to a water treatment facility.

Do All Homes Have Grinder Pumps?

Not all homes have grinder pumps, as gravity typically helps get wastewater where it needs to go. However, homes northwest of Austin, like Cedar Park, Lago Vista, Leander, and Jonestown, may need a grinder pump to help overcome elevation and terrain difficulties.

Homes built on ground lower than the city sewer system need a grinder pump to help push wastewater uphill into that sewer system.

If you live in a city that uses a pressurized sewer main, you’ll also need a grinder pump system to help wastewater reach the main line.

Where Are They Located?

Grinder pumps aren’t actually located inside your home. Instead, they’re found outside, set into the ground with a round cover on top. They work with help from a control panel that’s typically mounted to the outside of your house.

Signs You Need Grinder Pump Repairs

Reach out to our technicians if you’re dealing with a:

  • Motor that goes on and off every few minutes
  • Pump that doesn’t start or stop
  • Visual or audible grinder pump alarm
  • Pump that throws the switch on the breaker box

Our team can handle everything from quick repairs to comprehensive grinder pump replacements, so when in doubt, go the Good Clean route! We’ll inspect your system and go from there.
