Abstract
An extensive accumulation of data on pressure sewers and the Grinder Pump (GP) Unit has been presented and summarized. The grinder pump is simply a pump which grinds household sewage and pumps it into the sewer. It has special application to hilly areas where conventional gravity sewers are difficult to install. The report discusses the results of a field demonstration of grinder pump units in Albany, New York. Pressures, water usage, operating time, overflow occurrences, total number of operations, simultaneous operations were recorded. The effectiveness of small, non-metallic pipes transporting the macerated wastewater under pressure was also successfully demonstrated. Grease accumulation did occur. Extensive chemical sampling proved that the pressure sewer waste was 100% stronger but contained 50% less contaminants on a gm/capita/day basis.
