If you happen to live off the proverbial beaten path in Florida, there’s a good chance that you have a septic tank. Septic tanks are lifesavers, allowing people to live in areas that don’t have access to sewer mains without being buried in waste. As anyone who owns a septic tank will tell you, however, they require some pretty specific conditions in order to operate properly. One of those conditions is being located below the home. If you require sewage pump services in South Florida, call Heavy Metal Plumbing today to schedule an appointment.
Heavy Metal Plumbing provides sewage pump services throughout South Florida and the surrounding areas.
What is a Sewage Pump?
A sewage pump is a device designed to pump sewage up inclines and into the septic tank. They are used in areas where the septic tank is located at a higher elevation than the house, or when the pipe has to travel over a hill to get to it. A sewage pump is pretty much the only way for a septic tank configuration like this to work.
Why Is a Sewage Pump Necessary?
A septic tank system operates the same way that most plumbing does. Waste is flushed out of the home’s sewer line, and flows down into the tank to be stored until it can be collected and removed. If the septic tank is at a higher elevation than the house, however, it cannot rely on gravity to feed the sewage into it. This essentially means that if your septic tank is higher than the house, it will be useless without a sewage pump. Attempting to use it anyway will result in sewage backing up in your pipes, causing ruptures and contaminating the rest of your plumbing. So, by neglecting to install a sewage pump for your septic tank, you can actually cause thousands of dollars–worth of damage to your plumbing. If you aren’t sure whether or not you need a sewage pump, give us a call and we’ll evaluate your system for you. Not everyone does need a sewage pump, but for those that do it’s absolutely necessary.
