A recent episode of the PBS show This Old House has homeowners who want to create usable space below-grade of their 300-year-old New England house, so their plumber decided to use Little Giant. The dank, dreary basement space is destined to turn into a work area complete with utility sink, potting station and half bathroom, yet the below grade elevation meant that a gravity-fed waste system wasn’t feasible. The plumbing contractor on This Old House utilized a Little Giant® Pit+Plus package to serve as a critical sewage ejector.
The Pit+Plus package is known for providing an all-in-one solution for wastewater management. Each package includes a roto-molded polyethylene basin – the pit – combined with the user’s choice of Little Giant pump: 1 HP grinder pump, or a 4/10 HP or ½ HP sewage pump. The basin is available in two sizes: the 24x24 JR or 20x30 SR.
For this project, the application needed to accommodate a toilet and two sinks, and the team selected the Pit+Plus Jr. with a 4/10 HP sewage pump to deliver long-term performance. The plumbing team also pointed out several key features of the package, including a removable cover, easy access to the float, and the ability to service the pump without disconnecting the intake and discharge.
There’s a reason we’ve been the go-to pump for HVAC, Plumbing, Pool, and Hydroponics professionals for generations: experience. For 80 years, Little Giant® products have stood the test of time, pumping a steady flow of proven reliability in the most demanding applications.
