Thread: Sewage pump

  1. #1

    Default Sewage pump

    I am building a house and need to pump the sewage. I have looked at the little giant pump and basin kits. They are 4/10 hp or 1/2 hp. Will these work for an entire house? (three bedroom two bath) Thanks

    Talking dont skimp on your pump

    stay away from all the junk out there like the
    little giant....


    this is somethign that you want to be trouble free
    for a very long time....

    dont be a tight wad on
    your sewage pump .....or you will ive to regret it...


    get the ZOELLER heavy duty sewage pump with
    a mercury switch that attaches to the pipe....

    go out and buy any typicle deep sewage pit
    with the metal lid and you are set for up to 20 years....

    Default pump

    For the entire house you need an engineered duplex system with all the bells and whistles, about $5,000.00, and a main water valve tied to the pump's overflow circuit that will shut off the water if both pumps fail or there is a power failure so you cannot continue to use water and flood the house.

    It's really going to depend on what foot of "head" the pump is going to have to over come, what the GPM's are going to be coming into the pit, and what voltage and phase you have available.
