  •  House Generators MUST be sized to handle all motor loads (MLWSA Grinder pumps have a 1 Horse Power Motor/ 240 Volt/AMP load with an in rush amperage of 35 which eventually drops to 6/7 AMPS)
  • 30 AMP Disconnect outside the house must be installed
  • Grinder Pump needs to be factored in with rest of house load (priority order: grinder pump, well and furnace)
  • IMPORTANT:  An inadequately sized generator likely will burn up/damage grinder pump motor resulting in replacement cost to be borne by customer.
