Residents, who observe a few common-sense guidelines, may avoid expensive repairs. Even residents whose homes are 'grandfathered-in' must do their part to avoid unnecessary repair costs or may be fined.
Your pump and grinder are YOUR responsibility......
If these or other inappropriate items are found in your damaged pump.
You may be fined.....
Many objects can harm your grinder and should not go down the drain.
Items that have been known to cause damage to sewage grinders:
small plastic items: caps, toys, diapers,
Q-tips, cat litter,
glass, metal, wood,
Dangerous or chemical substances should not go down the drain:
Sewage discharged on the ground will leak into our community's well-water. This is unsafe and illegal. Please contact a plumbing repair company or the town if repairs are covered for your home, purchased before 2005.
Never connect a sump pump to your drain or grinder system.
Processing runoff water as sewage is unnecessary and expensive. It will overload the system, and cause problems for you and your neighbors.
If you connect a sump pump to your grinder pump, you may be fined.
