To the Village Residents —

Please help us help you to keep our costs from increasing.

Here is a picture of a grinder pump we pulled out of a Montgomery Street Address. These are “flushable” wipes, paper towels, rags and tampons, all of which should not be put down the toilet. This clogs the pump, makes it work way too hard and eventually the pump stops working. The pump cost the village $2,000 plus the labor to pull the old pump and install the new pump.  Flushable wipes are flushable but so is a tee shirt; the only thing that should go down the toilet is toilet paper and human waste.

NO paper towels, tampons, flushable wipes, diapers, rugs (we did pull a pump that had parts of the bathroom rug lodged in the unit).

This is too costly!!  These all need to go into the trash, not the toilet.

Please take note that these are the kinds of problems that take place inside a grinder pump and cost so much for repair/replacement.

This is a repeat occurrence and results from complete negligence and irresponsible behavior. There is no reason for this kind of situation to occur. It is too expensive of a problem to repeatedly have to deal with.

We appreciate those households who have made every effort to prevent these grinder pumps problems from happening. These pumps should last at least five years with normal usage. Let’s try to keep our costs to a minimum and prevent the need for pump replacement. We can if each household works to do their best.

We all need to pay attention and be responsible.

Thank you.
