Little giant Sewage and septic systems are designed to be used for moving processed and partially processed sewage and waste water form the final septic tank to the drainage system (Little Giant 9S-SMPXC-LG). Little giant sewage systems are built to last long and are more stable than other ordinary sewage systems. If the septic systems are properly maintained in proper working conditions, the sewage system will occasionally come into contact with solid wastes. Solid wastes are responsible for clogging up of the screens. For proper functioning of the pumps and the entire sewage system, sanction screens must be kept clean. Provided the prohibition screens are not clean, clogging of the entire pump will appear and the pump will not perform to the desired levels. Clogging up of the screens prevents waste waters and effluents form flowing into the pump. The pump utilizes the flow of effluents and waste water provides a means provide the means of cooling to the pump. If the screens are blocked up, the discharge does not run into the sewage pump and hence the pump heats up. It is wise to check the pumps, at least on a monthly basis, for indication of trash and solid waste build ups.
Electrical splices submerged in water should be eliminated. This is because electrical splices can tolerate water into electrical connections causing power shortages to the ground and pump tripping off the power lines. The sewage pump Little Giant 9S-SMPX-LG Pit Plus Sewage System power cord to the power control panel should not have electrical splices in the connection.
The pumps circuit breaker should be sized appropriately with accordance to the power consumption. For example, if the pump is15Amps rated, the circuited breaker should have rating higher than 15Amps. In any case, the maximum circuited breaker for little giant sewage pumps is the 20Amps circuit breaker. Pumps with over-sized circuit breaking systems are at risks of overheating and burning up before the circuit breaker trips off the power supply.
Like with all other electrical appliances, little giant sewage pumps provide the longest use when they are properly operated, well looked after and maintained.
