What is a grinder pump, anyway? A grinder pump is a pump unit located at a low point in your house or in your yard where the wastewater drains from the house that grinds up the wastewater and then pumps it to the nearest gravity sewer in the public street.
If there is too much flow into your grinder pump you may need to –
1. Immediately discontinue use of your water.
2. Turn off any alarm that may have sounded.
3. Wait at least 15 minutes.
4. NEVER open the tank cover or electrical box!
