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 (301) 804-6759 to speak with a knowledgeable staff member. 

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.

    "Explained things in layman terms so it was easy to understand"
    I had an emergency after Washington Gas said that there was a gas leak from the meter from the regulator and they said that it needed to be replaced immediately. They were able to send someone over in a few hours and although the cost was on emergency rates, the pricing was still competitive among other companies and were very responsive. They had someone come over beforehand to check the leak to see what part needed to be replaced before they had the technician come over which was very helpful. Troy was very knowledgeable and explained things in layman terms so it was easy to understand. I would highly recommend Mallick Plumbing & Heating for future issues.
