Grinder Pump Repair for Milwaukee Homes and Businesses
Grinder pumps are used in homes that are below the grade of the municipal sewer system. Determining if your grinder pump needs repair is difficult because the pump is buried deep underground below the frost line. Signs your grinder pump may be in need of repair include:
- The pump restarts frequently
- The motor remains engaged
- The pump will not start
- A breaker is thrown when the pump starts
- You hear or see a warning on your system
Should you Repair or Replace your Pump?
Effluent pumps cycle hundreds of times every year to move thousands of gallons of wastewater and sewage. High-quality septic and grinder pumps are designed to last between 10 and 15 years before they require replacement. If your pump exhibits signs of failure towards the end of its useful life, it is more cost-effective to replace the pump rather than repair an old unit. Critical parts such as floats and switches can also fail and lead to a septic backup. If the pump motor is in good condition, repairing the unit is the most logical solution.
