Speaking of Sewage Pumps.

There is a topic that few people wish to discuss.  A sewage pump is used to transfer sewage liquids and solids from one place to another…see what we mean?  Usually, sewage includes soft solids up to 2″ in diameter which is pumped from a sewage basin to a sewer system or a septic tank.  A sewage pump is installed at the lowest point of the sewage basin.

Here is a description of a sewage pump.  It is a centrifugal pump, with a special design enabling solids to pass without clogging the pump.  When the pump is turned on, the motor starts to rotate the impeller, creating the pressure that pushes water into the impeller itself and then goes into the discharge pipe.

It’s complicated, necessary, and messy.  It is also one of the things that Dave Bailey and his team specialize in…the repair and replacement of sewage pumps.  For any and all plumbing matters in the Peoria area always think of Dave first.  That’s Dave Bailey Plumbing of Morton.  The number to call is (309) 265-6788.
