Pump Boxes

Plumbing of waste water commonly involves a pump box. The job of a pump box is similar to a septic tank, but it is smaller and has a pump, or grinder installed inside of it. For a home or commercial property, a pump box is typically used for retro-fit purposes, or when a pump box is required before installing a septic tank. Pump boxes can be installed with an aluminum hatch, if required.  Waste water drains from plumbing systems into a pump box for treatment.

Your electrician simply wires power to the box and plugs it in. If the pump or floats fail, just unplug it, replace the faulty part, and plug it back in.
