The Gatorgrinder reduces all forms of sanitary waste to a non-clogging slurry and pumps it through a network of small-diameter pipes. Designed specifically for operation in warmer climates, the Gatorgrinder is an efficient, economic station for single-family homes.
Drawings & Installation Instructions
The Gatorgrinder grinder pump station consists of a pump and tank. The grinder pump, motor controls and level-sensing are integrated into a compact unit, easily removable for service. The fiberglass tank is supplied complete with discharge fitting installed, simplifying installation of the grinder pump and plumbing.
Solids are ground into fine particles that pass easily through the pump, check valve and small-diameter pipe lines — even objects that should not be in sewage, such as plastic, rubber, fiber, wood, etc. The 1-1/4" discharge connection can be adapted to any piping materials that meet local code requirements.
The tank is constructed of laminated fiberglass and is available in several depths to accommodate capacity and site requirements. Other tank sizes are available upon request.
The grinder pump is automatically activated and runs for very short periods. Electrical consumption of the grinder pump is low -- a household that uses 250 gallons of water per day should use less than 10 kwhr per month to run the pump. (Actual water and power usage will vary.)
E/One grinder pumps do not require preventive maintenance and boast an average of eight to 10 years between service calls. If service is required, the unique, one-piece core eliminates the need for in-field troubleshooting and servicing — the pump core can be quickly pulled out and replaced, meaning minimal maintenance costs and inconvenience for the homeowner.
