Helpful Tips To Prolong Life Of Grinder Pumps

To help prolong the life of your grinder pump, please do no flush the following items:

Wet wipes (even if they say flushable)
Solvents
Feminine care products
Cleaners (unless diluted by use)
Paint
Small toys
Syringes or medical supplies
Out-of-date medication
Left over food

All of the preceding items are harmful to the pumps and/or the sewer system. Also, if you are going to be away from your Island home for an extended period of time, it is helpful to flush the pump with a full bathtub of fresh water before leaving.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Terry Schwartz, Operator In Charge, at 843.568.3998 or terry@deweesislandpoa.org
