Sewer-Related Suggestions for Severe Weather
- When power is out, limit flushing toilets and running water in faucets.
- If you own a grinder pump and your property floods where the pump is, turn off switch for grinder pump in the main breaker box or in pump’s panel box prior to the heavy rain. Be sure to turn it back on once flooding subsides.
- If you own a grinder pump and hear the alarm sound or see alarm light flashing for more than 15 minutes, contact BCSS.
There are generator transfer switches available for grinder pumps. If you are interested in one, please contact an electrician to discuss this option.
