Sewage Pump Services in Tampa
Did you know that the sewer system in your home is meant to rely purely on gravity to operate? Waste water flows down through the sewer system and out to the septic system or sewer main entirely because of gravity. This works the majority of the time, but it has one major drawback: the septic tank or sewer main must be downhill from your home. If your home is downhill from the septic tank or sewer main, you’re going to run into some serious issues.
The way to solve those issues is to install a sewage pump. If you need a sewage pump installed, repaired, maintained, or replaced, call Peninsular Plumbing. We offer a full range of sewage pump services throughout Tampa, FL. Call today to schedule an appointment.

What Is a Sewage Pump?
A sewage pump is a device designed to keep your home’s sewer system functioning properly, even when gravity is working against it. It sits in the sewer line, at the point where sewage can no longer flow through the system purely by using gravity, and propels the sewage uphill to its destination. To save energy, sewage pumps only activate when there is a need for them. Otherwise, they remain idle. What kind of sewage pump you install in your home should depend on your individual situation. You should consult with a professional about whether or not your home needs a sewage pump.
When Is a Sewage Pump Necessary?
If your home is downhill from your septic system or the city sewer main, and you try to use your sewage system without a sewage pump, you’re going to very quickly run into some issues. Since home sewer systems rely entirely on gravity, the sewage from your home will come to a stop in the sewer line where it starts to go uphill. This will lead to a buildup of sewage in your sewer line, which will start having major impacts on your home’s plumbing. You’re going to start experiencing more pipe leaks and ruptures. There’s a risk of contaminating your fresh water plumbing systems, which poses a significant biohazard. This is why a sewage pump is not just a benefit, but absolutely necessary for some homes.
