What’s the difference? Sump Pump v Sewage Pump

Central Indiana’s Isley Plumbing Knows the Answer

Spring has sprung — no “plumber’s pun” intended. We are about to head into rainy season and when rain falls on your home and property, you want to make sure none of that water enters hour home. If you have a basement or cellar, or another room in your home that is mostly underground, it can be surprisingly easy for water to seep in and cause damage.

That is when it is time to make sure your sump pump is functioning properly or to investigate whether or not you need a sump pump before flooding becomes an issue.

Did you know that sump pumps aren’t the only devices to save your home from flooding? A Sewage pump can also act similar to a sump pump, but it is hard to decide which is the best type of pump for your home and property location.

Sewage Pumps Vs. Sump Pumps 

A sewage pump has one critical difference versus a sump pump — It can pump out solids. Usually, a sump pump is more than capable of handling water coming into your home. You may want to ask Isley Plumbing which is right for your home especially if you have a laundry room or bathroom in your basement or if solid forms of waste get washed into your home with rainwater from time to time.
