Effluent Pump Services in Allentown, PA by Tim Beil Plumbing

For homes that must rely on a septic system to treat wastewater because they do not have a pipeline to a municipal sewer system, it is very important that all of its parts work effectively. A leaking septic system or one that isn’t correctly pumping out grey water into the drainfield will lead to problems such as drains backing up in the home or even bacteria and sludge seeping into the ground and contaminating it.

An important component of some septic systems is the effluent pump, also known as a septic effluent pump, which is responsible for moving the grey water (the effluent, as opposed to solid waste, or sludge) from the septic tank and into the drainfield when the drainfield sits at a higher elevation than the tank. Effluent pumps are similar in action to sump pumps, but are more durable and powerful. If your septic tank requires an effluent pump, you must be careful to see that it receives repairs whenever necessary as well as a replacement if it runs down. Contact Tim Beil Plumbing when that time arrives, since you do not want to attempt to work on effluent pump on your own. Our team has experience with installing and servicing septic systems in the area, so you can trust to us for whatever you need for your effluent pump.

Call Us for Effluent Pump Replacement

When an effluent pump permanently breaks down, you will need to have it replaced as soon as possible. It takes professionals to know what type of pump to use for the replacement, and this is an area where you want to be 100% certain that you have the correct replacement. Because terms such as sewage pump and septic pump are used fluidly to refer to different types of devices, you must rely on experienced technicians to select the device that matches your needs. Septic tank professionals will locate the replacement unit, and then handle the work of moving out the old pump and hooking up the new one.

We Also Repair Effluent Pumps

A malfunctioning effluent pump doesn’t always need a replacement. Sometimes it only needs repairs to restore it to full working condition. A number of objects can end up inside the septic tank that can create clogs within the pump (cloth, paper, cotton swabs, dental floss, diapers, glass, latex materials, metals) and stop it from working. When the effluent pumps stops working and you notice backups from the septic tank into the house, call for repair technicians immediately.
