  • Ejector Pumps v. Grinder Pumps

    We had an ejector pump installed in the back of our house to pump sewage up to the city connection in the front of our house. Every time my toddler uses 1 disposable, flushable toddler wipe, the pump gets clogged up. I was told by the manufacturer of the pump that no disposable wipes can be used or anything other than toilet paper with any kind of pump, grinder or ejector. Is that true? Is there any kind of pump that will allow one to flush disposable wipes?

    Rule of thumb is to never flush those wipes...
    The guys here will tell you how rich they could get on them...
    TP disolves...the wipes don't ...

      The wipes are kicking you pumps but, just through them in the trash or a diaper genie

      Remember ......It's a pump not a shredder

        He's wrong

        You can buy a grinder pump that will make mush out of that "flushable" wipe. It can pump it up the hill, down the street and around the corner if you wanted.

        It's just easier to keep the ejector pump that you have and not flush the wipes.

            If you want to continue flushing baby wipes you'll need a reversing grinder

            Zoeller Shark Grinder Pump Model 840
            http://www.zoeller.com/zcopump/produ...rs/840pump.htm

            Be sure you have the proper voltage and wire size.

              Why not just not flush the wipes?

                I have had two zoeller 820 pumps in 5 yrs. The first failed after 3 yrs. It is being repaired now as the replacement is now not working after 2 yrs. At over $1000 ea. I would not buy another zoeller. I did not know enough to ask the contractor what this system was since each plumber sz why did the builder install a pump. But I have learned.

                  Liberty Omnivore.
                  if it tangles that thing up we need to be using it in flak jackets.
                  No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                    Actually,

                    You could solve your problem for under $100 and be healthier

                    You could replace your "wipes" with a Bidet Toilet Seat,

                    Check out that thread OP, good info

                      A zoeller 840 230v 1ph pump lists out @ $2325.00-ish.

                      I vote for putting the wipes in the trash.
