Gaithersburg Grinder Pump Services

Offering Top-Quality Workmanship in Gaithersburg & Surrounding Areas

A grinder pump is a little-known part of your plumbing system, but it is vital despite few non-professionals knowing about it. It’s essentially a larger and more impressive version of your garbage disposal: grinding up waste in your outgoing water and pumping it into civic sewer system. It’s usually placed in a tank buried beneath your yard and gets triggered whenever outgoing wastewater from your home reaches a certain level.

As you may expect, such a system requires professional services to install into your existing system, keep it repaired and maintained, and replace all components when the time comes. Mallick Plumbing & Heating, Inc. has grinder pump experts on staff and will discuss your options with you before getting your grinder pump up to speed.

Who Needs a Grinder Pump?

One of the reasons the sewer system is located beneath the streets is that it provides a natural downhill slant for your sewer line. That way, wastewater flows naturally out of your home and there’s no need to fuss.

But sometimes, a property may be located below the sewer line, or have some similar problem that prevents the wastewater from reaching the sewer. In addition, restaurants and other commercial enterprises may have a great deal more wastewater to process than residences, and for them, a grinder pump may be more necessity than luxury.

If you have questions about grinder pump or want to learn more about your options, call

How Does a Grinder Pump Work?

Wastewater often contains a surprising amount of solid waste, not all of which is ground down by the garbage disposal in your kitchen sink. A grinder pump simply makes use of that to keep your property clean. It’s surrounded by a tank that acts as a holding center for your wastewater. When the wastewater reaches a particular level, the pump activates, grinding down any solid waste, then pumps it out through your sewer line and into the sewer system.

In most cases, a grinder pump will run until the tank is empty, then automatically shut off. It keeps the system clear and clean without a fuss, but as you may have suspected, it also takes the attentions of a trained professional who knows what they’re doing.
