Grinder Pumps

May 20, 2020

What is a grinder pump?

  • A grinder pump is similar to an ejector pump. It is a pump that is utilized to remove waste products from your plumbing system when the building sewer is located too high for the system to flow by gravity.
  • The difference between an ejector pump and a grinder pump is that a grinder pump grinds the waste into very small pieces, similar to your garbage disposal. In doing so it can utilize a smaller discharge pipe and it can convey the waste at a higher velocity for longer distances.

How much do grinder pumps cost?

  • Grinder pumps are more expensive than ejector pumps and typically start at over $1,500.00.


How long do grinder pumps last?

  • Depending on the application and usage the average life is around 10 years.

How far can a grinder pump pump?

Several hundred feet or more is not uncommon. However, it depends on several things including:

  • The model of the pump
  • The size of the discharge pipe
  • The total dynamic head (how high it must pump and the number of fittings or turns it must encounter)


What is the best grinder pump?

  • There are several manufacturers of grinder pumps but we prefer models manufactured by Zoeller.
