Product Spotlight: WH101 Grinder Pump Station

The W Series is E/One's most versatile grinder pump station — a range of basins, covers, discharges, inlets and panels are available. Grinder pumps pump wastewater from the home to the central sewer system and/or treatment system through small-diameter pipes.


E/One's model WH101 grinder pump station features a single grinder pump inside an open wetwell tank. The grinder pump, motor controls and level-sensing controls are integated into a compact unit, easily removable for service.

The tank is made from tough, corrosion-resistant HDPE. Fiberglass is available as an option. The optimum tank capacity of 100 gallons is based on studies of water usage patterns. A single WH101 grinder pump station can accommodate the sewage flow from two single-family homes, or up to 700 gallons per day.

The WH101 (with HDPE tank) is designed to accommodate a wide range of depths. The tank height can be adjusted in the field.

  1. A septic tank is basically a large underground container that holds sewage waste. 

    The septic tank is connected to a property by underground drainage pipes. 

    Once the sewage waste enters the septic tank, the solid particles start to break down until they eventually sink down and settle down on the bottom of the septic tank. 

    As for the liquid in the septic tank, once it reaches a certain height it is then discharged out of the outlet pipe into a soakaway. 

    The soakaway is generally a large pit or a network of perforated underground drainage pipes that allows the liquid waste to naturally drain away into the sub soil.

    Who would need a septic tank?

    Most properties who have a septic tank are unable, or would find it difficult to connect to mains drainage (public sewers).

    What are some of the problems associated with septic tanks?

    If maintained properly the life span of a septic tank is generally about 10-15 years.

    The list below shows the first things to deteriorate and break on a septic tank :-

    The septic tank lining inside the septic tank collapses.
    The septic tank t bar falls off into the septic tank.
    The septic tank lid and frame become dislodged and dangerous.
    The septic tank starts to smell.

    These problems are most commonly associated with septic tanks. 

    A word of advice however, if you are experiencing any of the above problems, it does not mean you need a new septic tank. 

    All these problems can be fixed and will cost a fraction of the price that a new septic tank system would cost.

    Please ring us for advice on any of the above problems for we have many years experience in repairing and installing septic tanks.

    I am looking to buy a septic tank.  Which tank should i choose and why?

    Firstly you need to determine the size of the septic tank you will need.  Building regulations and the Environmental Agency state that the minimum size of the septic tank should be 2800 litres.  This size tank caters for 1-2 bedroom properties.  For 3-4 bedrooms you need a 3500-3900 litre septic tank.  For 4-6 bedrooms you need a 4000-5000 litre septic tank.

    For the last 10-15 years septic tanks have generally been made in the shape of a large onion, and have been Tall, Big, heavy, bulky and a pain to install due to large excavation work needed.

    However in the last few years low profile septic tanks have started to appear on the market.  These low profile septic tanks are now becoming very popular among DIY enthusiasts as well as septic tank installers.  They are cylindrical in shape and are just under 4 feet in height, making them a lot easier to install.  They are also cheaper in price and more environmentally friendly. 

    These tanks can be found for sale on Google, Google products and of course they can be found on our online shop www.theseptictankshop.co.uk.
