What the different types of plumbing pumps do

When it comes to a plumbing system, the right type of equipment makes a significant difference. For instance, if you install the wrong plumbing pump, the results may be devastating and costly. Whether you are dealing with flooding issues in the basement, or you need an industrial pump, there is a tool for the job. Pumps, however, come in a variety of sizes, materials, modes of power, and come in two categories: submersible and non-submersible.

Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are designed to be submerged inside the liquid being pumped. The types of pumps often break down into further categories, including sump pumps, sewer ejector pumps, and transfer/pony pumps.

  • Sump Pump – A sump pump is installed in a residential building with a basement below the local water table. Any low point that tends to accumulate water should have a sump pump installed.

  • Sewer Ejector Pump – This type of pump is helps to prevent clogs in the sewer line, as it handles the pumping of moderate amounts of wastewater.

  • Transfer/Pony Pump – A pump designed to move quantities of water from one place to another, such as a flooded basement to elsewhere.

Non-Submersible Pumps

Non-submersible pumps, otherwise known as inline pumps, are designed to remain dry and out of liquid. These types of pumps are easier to access and support, as they are not submerged underwater or in waste. The most common uses are for circulating heated water throughout homes, which is a low-maintenance function and quite energy-efficient, too. You will see these referred to as circulator pumps.
