Inspector Pumphead’s Buyers Guide: Zoeller 400 Series Sewage Pumps



Pump Products is now distributing the Zoeller 400 series “Waste-Mate” sewage pumps. These submersible sewage pumps are built for wastewater applications in residential or commercial settings. These Waste-Mate pumps can also transport groundwater as well as effluent. Typical uses for such pumps include removing water from parking lots, flooded areas and in areas full of unscreened raw sewage.

Each pump is constructed of rugged, corrosion resistant cast iron with a cast iron non clog vortex impeller which allows the pumps to pass water and 3″ spherical solids. The volute also features a powder-coated epoxy finish. The pumps are hermetically sealed to be water and dust tight. The closed coupled motor is also hermetically sealed, oil filled, and is thermally protected with an automatic reset.

All pumps listed below have a 4″ horizontal ANSI flanged discharge and include a 20 ft. power cord (except the 405-00010 which includes a 25 ft. cord).

Inspector Pumphead’s Classroom: Training with A.Y. McDonald

Pump Products recently held a training seminar and Q&A session with Michael, the Northeast territory manager representing A.Y. McDonald Mfg. Co. This training session was just one of a number of such sessions designed to familiarize Pump Products application engineers and marketing staff with a manufacturer’s products, processes and customer service capabilities. Pump Products employees will in turn be able to better communicate about those products to customers.

Cutaway of an A.Y. McDonald submersible well pump, now on display at our front counter

The talk centered specifically on A.Y. McDonald’s versatile and well-built submersible well pump line. The strength of A.Y. McDonald well pumps lies in their quality construction; all pump ends are made and manufactured in the United States. The target market for these well pumps is the discerning consumer who is willing to pay for quality manufacturing. While A.Y. McDonald has experimented with imported pump ends in the past, according to Michael, the company has rededicated itself to domestic manufacturing centered in its factory in Dubuque, IA.

Application engineer Nick examines the submersible well pump

Keeping design and manufacture in-house allows the company to have “wonderful customer service,” according to Michael.

“It’s a very tight knit and family-oriented group,” he said.

The focus on customer service is particularly important for A.Y. McDonald because it is a “boutique” manufacturer. That focus extends to shipment (A.Y. McDonald can drop ship directly from the factory) and to the warranty process. Most pumps carry a one year warranty, but extended warranties up to three and five years are also available. Michael estimated that he fields about one warranty request per month.

Michael lectures the gang

The group also talked about A.Y. McDonald’s vaunted SludgeMaster pump. Commonly used to get radon out of water cisterns, the SludgeMaster is powered by an air compressor and can evacuate mud, gunk, leaves, twigs and other waste from a system. While it can’t run on pure solids – the pumping medium should be about 70% liquid – the SludgeMaster is still a heavy duty pump. It has been described as an “animal” or “beast.”

Some A.Y. McDonald literature

All in all, it was an enlightening and invigorating training session that strengthened the partnership between Pump Products and A.Y McDonald and has better equipped Pump Products to better serve the customer needs.

Inspector Pumphead’s Buyers Guide: Zoeller 270 & 4270 Series Sewage Pumps




Pump Products is now distributing the Zoeller 270 series and Zoeller 4270 series sewage pumps. Each pump in this series is submersible and designed to move sewage in residential or light commercial applications. These pumps can also move groundwater and effluent as well.

Each pump in the Zoeller 270/4270 series features a rugged cast iron volute and motor housing covered with a corrosion resistant powder coated epoxy finish, while the pump base is engineered plastic. The non clog vortex impeller is engineered plastic as well. The screws, bolts and carry handle are all made of fine stainless steel.The shaft seal is a composite of carbon and ceramic with a neoprene square ring and gasket. The motor (60 Hz, 3450 RPM) is oil-filled, hermetically sealed and thermally protected with an automatic reset.

Durability is an important issue for any wastewater pump and the Zoeller 270/4720 series pumps are pressure-tested and submerged to run before they leave the factory. These pumps are not affected by materials normally found in drainage and sewage sumps. The main difference between the two sub-series is that Zoeller 270 pumps have a single seal while Zoeller 4270 pumps have a double seal.

All pumps listed below are single phase operated. Automatic models include a variable level float switch.

Inspector Pumphead’s Buyers Guide: Goulds WW05 Series Sewage Pumps


Pump Products is now carrying Goulds WW05 Model 3872 series sewage pumps. These sturdy pumps are specifically designed for use in residential wastewater systems and can also be used for dewatering for groundwater and general water transfer purposes.

The construction of these pumps is rugged with the volute casing made of glass-filled thermoplastic for superior strength and corrosion resistance. The impeller is glass filled thermoplastic as well and shaped into a full-vortex design, with pump out vanes to direct corrosive waste and solids away from the mechanical seal. The mechanical seal itself is a combination rotary (carbon) and stationary (ceramic) sealing faces encased by BUNA-N elastomers. The motor housing is made of cast iron for efficient heat transfer. The motor cover is cast iron and the fasteners are stainless steel.

Each of these sewage pumps is single-phase operated and can move water with up to 2″ diameter waste solids. Power cords (varying length, see chart below) include a three prong grounding plug and are severe duty rated as well as oil, dust and water resistant. WW05 series pumps are designed to be fully submerged and can operate in 104° F water continuously and 140° F water intermittently.

All automatic models include a preset mechanical float switch.

Inspector Pumphead’s FAQ: What Is The Difference Between A Sewage Pump & A Grinder Pump?

Welcome to Inspector Pumphead’s Frequently Asked Questions! I will be answering some of the most common questions we get on a specific topic. Some of this information may also be available elsewhere, but this feature will serve as a convenient one-stop source. In this edition, I’ll talk about sewage pumps and grinder pumps.

First, watch the video explanation below:


Are sewage pumps and grinder pumps the same thing?

Sewage and grinder pumps are indeed related but are different in its construction and use. The idea that they are the same is a common misconception because many people will often use both terms interchangeably to refer to a basement pump that moves sewage water out of a building.

This is where taxonomy becomes important: all grinder pumps are sewage pumps, but not all sewage pumps are grinder pumps. Much like the old quadrilateral adage (“all squares are rectangles, but not all rectangles are squares”), this aptly describes a relationship where one (sewage) is general and the other (grinder) is specialized. The key fact is that both pumps are built to move sewage when the sewage line is above the point of collection (such as with a basement toilet).

So what’s the difference between these two kinds of pumps?

Inspector Pumphead is ready to answer your questions

The difference between the two is the type and size of the solids that can pass through the pump. Sewage pumps can pass up to 2” waste solids. “Waste solids” in this instance generally refers to human waste (gross) or other ‘soft’ solids that can easily be broken down or dissolved. Harder and thicker solids will clog and eventually damage the pump.

Grinder pumps incorporate a cutter or cutting mechanism that macerates (grinds/chops) the solids into a fine slurry to be exported. The fine slurry can be pumped higher than the solids from the sewage ejector pumps.

So should I just get a grinder pump for my house if I’m worried about clogging and waste solids?

Grinders are more expensive, require more power and are typically built for commercial and/or light industrial applications where a system might be strained by trying to process solids. Think motels or any place where a lot of people will use the system everyday without caring about what they flush. I’m talking about diapers, plastic, wipes, gloves, etc. So unless something very strange is going on at your house, you probably won’t need a grinder.

Sewage pumps are less expensive and more suitable for domestic and/or light commercial applications. Still, if you really want a grinder for more domestic applications, Liberty makes the PRG ProVore/Omnivore grinder pump series for just such a purpose.

So if I do have a grinder, can I just throw any old thing down there without worry?

Not exactly. While grinders are well equipped to macerate solids, they are not impervious to wear and tear over time. If things that should not be flushed down the toilet keep getting flushed down there, eventually, yes, even a grinder pump will suffer damage and have to be replaced. That is why you should do everything possible to make sure that people – whether they be employees, guests, tenants – do not abuse your system. As I always say, preventative care is the best way to ensure that your equipment keeps operating in good health for a long time.
