What are wastewater macerator pumps?

There is a common belief that adding a new bathroom and making major changes to an existing bathroom are expensive. Many choose to go without the updates they would like to see. Now there is an inexpensive solution to bathroom additions. Gray water pump macerators are a low cost solution for waste water elimination from sinks and showers. Black water macerators help you to locate toilets more conveniently.

Macerator pumps are commonly used in bathrooms on boats, cottages and RVs. They are small waste elimination systems powered by electricity. Their compact size makes them ideal for small spaces. With water flushed by the toilet, a macerator pump unit applies suction, pumping and chopping to grind and discharge the waste.
