LIST OF WARNINGS
1. Make sure pump connection contains a ground terminal. The power
cord on all Zoeller Progressing Cavity Grinder Pumps contains a green
conductor for grounding to help protect you against the possibility of
electric shock.
2. Make certain the electrical service is within reach of the power
supply cord.
3. Make sure any panels and branch circuits are equipped with
proper size fuses and circuit breakers. An independent power circuit is
recommended, sized according to the National Electrical Code, for the
current shown on the grinder pump nameplate.
4. For your protection, always disconnect the power source to the
grinder pump before handling. All grinder pumps must be properly
grounded and wired in accordance with the “National Electrical Codes”
and all local codes and ordinances.
5. Installation of electrical hardware and checking of control panels
and circuits should be performed by a qualified licensed electrician.
6. Risk of electrical shock - These pumps have not been investigated for
use in swimming pool areas.
7. According to the state of California (Prop 65), this product contains
chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth
defects or other reproductive harm.
Progressing cavity grinder pumps are designed
for pressure sewer applications. A UL listed and CSA certified pressure relief valve must be installed in the system to prevent excessive
pressure buildup.
1. Make sure the power source is capable of handling the
electrical requirements of the grinder pump, as indicated on the
nameplate.
2. A disconnect switch should be installed ahead of the pump.
3. The progressing cavity grinder pumps are operated by variable level
float control switches. It is the responsibility of the installing party to
see that float control switches will not hang up on the grinder pump
or other pit peculiarities and are secured so that the grinder pump will
shut off. It is recommended to use rigid pipe and fittings and the pit be
at least 24" in diameter for simplex systems and 36" in diameter for
duplex systems or larger.
4. Grinder installations should be checked yearly for debris and/or build up
which may interfere with the “ON” or “OFF” positions of variable level
float control switches. Repair and service, other than cutter assembly
maintenance, should be performed by Zoeller Engineered Products
authorized service stations only.
5. Maximum operating tem per a ture must not ex ceed 130°F,
(54°C).
6. Do not operate an unsubmerged progressing cavity pump. Dry pump
operation may damage the hydraulic stator due to lack of lubrication.
Do not run dry.
7. To ensure proper pump operation, a swing or flapper style check
valve must be installed in the pump discharge line. A faulty or
non-functional check valve when combined with a pressure sewer
may prevent the pump from starting.
Do not attempt to turn star cutter located on
bottom of the unit with fingers. Use a wrench when checking
or removing star cutter.

General Information
PROGRESSING CAVITY
GRINDER PUMP DESCRIPTION
1. Pumps are constructed of class 30 cast iron protected with powder
coated epoxy for long life when pumping sewage in submersible
applications. The cutter assembly is comprised of stainless steel
components hardened to a value of 55-60 on the Rockwell C scale;
a star shaped cutter and a precision ground flat disk. Cutting action
takes place with the rotation of the star cutter at 1725 RPM against
the stationary cutter plate (see page 7).
2. The cutter mechanism on the model 810 & 815 is single directional.
3. Pump motors are single phase. Single phase motors require a run
capacitor, which is mounted in the the upper cap of the pump (ref.
page 4). The units have an internal thermal overload.
4. The 810 & 815 progressing cavity grinder pumps are single seal.
5. The pressure relief valve provides motor protection under inadvertent
shut-off head condition.
6. A progressing cavity grinder pump is an intermittent duty pump designed
for pumping sanitary sewage. It is not a dewatering or trash pump.
FIELD ASSEMBLED INSTALLATION
1. Installation and piping instructions are included with the control panel,
rail system and basin instructions. If pump is being retrofitted to an
existing rail system, accessory parts may be required. Consult the
factory and advise make and model of rail system being used.
2. Refer to the appropriate Indoor/Outdoor prepackaged instructions
for more information on system installation.
3. All electrical connections including pump to control box and power
supply to control panels must comply with the “National Electrical
Code” and applicable local codes. Conduit and panel enclosure
openings must have a gas-tight seal. Installation of electrical panels and
connections should be made by a qualified licensed electrician.

Outdoor Prepackaged System Installation Instructions
This set of instructions is for factory prepackaged outdoor progressing cavity grinder systems only. If this is a field assembled outdoor system you can
use these instructions as a guideline.
1. Review the drawing in Fig. 4 on page 5 and the actual system to become familiar
with the components in the packaged grinder pump system. Review where the unit
will be installed. Determine where the power feed, inlet pipe, and discharge pipe will
be located.
2. Remove the unit from packing. Prepackaged outdoor systems are preassembled at
the Zoeller Company and require a minimum of field assembly work. Float switches
are set and tethered for proper operation from the Factory. The alarm switch should
be located 2” above the pump “on” level.
3. Float switches are tied in place for shipping purposes on all model prepackaged
systems. Cut the cable tie around each float switch bulb or the unit will not operate
properly. Verify that where the float switches are set will work for your application.
Verifying that the float switches are set properly and will not hang up inside
the basin is the responsibility of the installing contractor.
4. Dig a hole for the basin. The hole should be at least 24” larger in diameter than
the basin diameter to provide 12” of backfill all around and deep enough to provide
either 12” of compacted backfill or 6” when a concrete pad is required. Ensure the
removable cover extends above the finished grade line and the grade slopes away
from the unit. Backfill and subbase should be 1/8” –3/4” pea gravel or 1/8” –1/2”
crushed stone. (Reference basin installation instructions included with unit)
5. Note: Care must be taken when excavating in order to avoid underground
utilities and disturbance of existing structure foundations. The hole should
be located at least ten feet from adjacent structures. Additional distance may
be required to sufficiently locate the basin outside of the loading area of the
adjacent structures.
6. The location of the inlet fitting is determined by the depth of the inlet pipe. The
inlet fitting must be used with 4” pipe. It is best to install the inlet on the side of the
basin opposite the float switches. To install, use a 5” hole saw to drill into the side
of the basin at the correct elevation. Center the hub inner diameter with the hole
in the basin. Attach the hub to the side of the basin using the sealant and hardware
provided.
7. The bottom of the excavation can now be back filled and compacted. Set basin in
hole and connect the 4” inlet pipe to the inlet hub.
8. The discharge piping is connected to the 1¼” threaded fitting located in the basin
sidewall.
9. On basin depths of 72” and greater, the system’s disconnect assembly is shipped
loose and must be screwed into the discharge piping. Apply pipe dope to threaded
connection.
10. Connect pull rod to Pump assembly. Connect lift cable to top of pump. Lower the
pump into basin ensuring the discharge pipe bracket slides into the disconnect
fitting.
11. Pouring a concrete anchor around system can now be completed. Basin should
be filled with water when pouring concrete to minimize movement of the system.
Back fill around basin with specified media. Care should be used to avoid damaging
components or leaving voids when back filling. Refer to Basin installation reference
guide on more specific requirements.
12. Note: The progressing cavity grinder basin is a sewage holding tank. Vent
connection should be installed in accordance with all national, state and local
plumbing codes.
13. Dig a trench for the electrical conduit. Trench should be located at least 18” deep
and follow all applicable NEC codes. Connect electrical wiring to Junction box
according to wiring instructions included in this manual and wiring diagram in box.
Use the included sealant when closing Junction box.
14. If used, a control panel is installed within sight of the system. Connect float switches
and pump cords according to the “Pump Wiring Instructions” found in this manual
and located inside the panel enclosure.
15. Remove any debris from the basin. Using clean water, check the system for proper
operation.
16. Seal and secure the lid using the proper bolts and sealant when using a lid without
a formed gasket.
17. Add water to the basin and test the system for leaks and proper pump operation.
18. Record system start up data for future reference.
Operation
GENERAL
Zoeller pumps are lubricated and tested at the factory prior to shipment and require
minimum pre-start-up maintenance.
Maximum operating temperature of pump liquid for grinder pumps must not exceed 130°F
(54°C).
These units are not designed to handle liquids other than sanitary sewage. If pump is
used to dewater areas with contaminated liquids with heavy or abrasive materials, the
warranty will be voided.
NAMEPLATE DATA
The nameplate, located on the top of the pump, indicates specific information about
the construction of the pump. The model number and date code information should be
recorded on the front page in the “Owner’s Information” section of this manual.
SHORT TERM STORAGE
When not in use, the pump should be stored and the following is advised:
• Drain pump housing by laying pump horizontal with discharge down. Then stand pump
on legs.
• Store pump inside whenever possible or cover with some type of protective covering.
• Tape or seal in plastic bag the terminal ends of wire leads.
• Spray coat unpainted surfaces with rust inhibiting oil.
• The impeller should be rotated every six months in order to keep the seal lubricated
and not develop a permanent set.
If panel is to be stored, the following is advised:
• Store the panel inside whenever possible and leave in the shipping box.
• All openings shall be sealed.
• Store in an upright position.
• Do not stack anything on top of panel.
START-UP PROCEDURE
Before placing the equipment into operation the following should be checked:
•
•
•
•
•
Clean pit.
Electrical boxes dry and securely installed.
Floats positioned properly.
Discharge valves open.
Adequate water level in basin for pump submersion.
Once the above has been verified proceed with the following checks:
• Pump power cables and control floats properly installed and voltage verified.
• Conduit connections to panel are properly sealed.
• After installing the pump into the containment area, with adequate submergence, open
the discharge valve fully. Start the unit using manual controls. If flow is appreciably
less than rated performance, pump may be air locked. To expel trapped air, jog the
unit several times, using the manual controls.
• Have a qualified electrician take voltage and current measurements with the pump
running. Record these readings in the space provided in the “Owner’s Information”
section on page 1 of this manual for future reference.
ADJUSTMENT PROCEDURE
Pumps: No adjustments are required.
Floats:
Refer to the system drawing or to the panel wiring schematic for the desired
location of each float switch setting.
Valves:
Discharge valves should be placed in the fully open position. Systems should
not be operated for extended periods of time with the discharge valves partially
closed due to damaging the valve.
SHUTDOWN PROCEDURES
If a system is shutdown for more than six months, the following is recommended:
Pumps: If pit is to remain dry, then the pump can remain in the pit. Do not run dry. If
the pit is to remain wet, the pump should be removed and stored as noted
above.
Panels: The panel should have all openings sealed to prevent moisture and dust from
entering the enclosure. Prior to restarting system, the panel should be inspected
for presence of moisture and any loose connections.
Valves:
Consult the valve/actuator supplier for information concerning these systems
components.

Cutter Maintenance
1. All power circuits must be disconnected and locked out before
any attempts are made at servicing. The star cutter and disc can
be removed and sharpened by grinding the cutting faces. Both star
cutter and disc must be removed from the pump. Removal of these
parts can be accomplished in the field by removing pump from the
sump and positioning horizontally to access the intake of the pump. If
seals or other repairs are required, the pump must be totally removed
and serviced in a shop by a qualified pump technician or authorized
service center.
2. Thoroughly clean the star cutter and disc assembly. Tilt pump back to
the vertical position to make certain the end play has been removed.
Check and record the clearance between the star cutter and disc with
a feeler gage. The correct running clearance is between 0.007" and
0.012".
3. With pump in horizontal position, heat the hex head bolt in the center
of the star cutter with a propane torch. The bolt must be heated to
350° F to soften the thread lock sealer on the bolt for ease of removal.
Remove the bolt by turning in a counterclockwise rotation. It will be
necessary to use a wood block to prevent the star cutter from turning
while removing the bolt. Pull star cutter from the shaft and remove
the spacer shims located behind the star cutter.
4. Remove the six cap screws holding the disc and remove disc from
the pump.
5. The disc and star cutter can be replaced with new service parts or
resurfaced by grinding. Resurfacing is accomplished by surface grinding
FIGURE 7.
both disc and star cutter to a 32 micro finish. Do not attempt grinding
in the field. Send parts to a qualified machine shop or return to the
factory for repair. The disc, star cutter and shims are a matched set.
Keep parts together. Measure disc before and after resurfacing with
micrometer and record measurements.
6. After resurfacing, the disc and star cutter must be flat within 0.001". If
the disc has been surface ground, it will be necessary to remove shims
to compensate for the material removed from the disc. As a starting
point, remove shims of the same thickness as the amount machined
from the cutter disc (step 6 above). Final running clearance must be
between 0.007" and 0.012". Be sure pump is in vertical position and
all end play has been removed before measuring.
7. Clean bottom of pump where disc is located and replace disc and
retainer screws. Torque to 63-67 in-lbs. Replace star cutter with the
correct shims. Install washer and torque hex head bolt to 71-75 in.-lbs.
apply Loctite 262 thread-lock sealant or equal to bolt threads prior to
insertion. Check running clearance with pump in vertical position to
remove end play. Clearance must be between 0.007" and 0.012" to
obtain efficient grinding when pump is put back in service.
8. Check the oil in the motor housing before reinstalling. Contact the
factory if the oil has a milky appearance or burnt smell. The level
should be even with the fill plug when pump is in the upright position.
Add oil if required. Use insulating oil supplied by the factory.
To remove star cutter: Heat the center bolt
to 350°F to loosen Loctite® thread sealant.
Grind the Star Cutter and Disc seen here to a 32 microfinish. Surfaces
must be flat to within 0.001" T.I.R. Gap must be between 0.007" and
0.012" on these parts.
General Maintenance
Repair and service should be performed by a Zoeller
Pump Company Authorized Service Station only.
SAFETY PROCEDURES
For your protection, always disconnect pump and
panel from its power source before handling.
Never enter the basin until it has been properly
vented and tested. Any person entering a basin should be wearing
a harness with safety rope extending to the surface so that they can
be pulled out in case of asphyxiation. Sewage water gives off methane
and hydrogen sulfide gases, both of which can be highly poisonous.
Installation and checking of electrical circuits and hardware should be
performed by a qualified electrician.
Pump is never to be lifted by power cord.
Unit must be cleaned and disinfected, inside the
pumping chamber and all exterior surfaces, prior to servicing.
GENERAL SYSTEM INSPECTION
Before the system is placed into operation, it should be inspected by a
qualified technician.
Wiring and grounding must be in accordance
with the National Electrical Code and all applicable local codes
and ordinances.
LUBRICATION PROCEDURES
No lubrication is required.
If pumps are to be stored for more than six months, refer to short term
storage procedure in the Operation section.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Preventive maintenance is recommended to ensure a long service life
from the product. Provided is a suggested maintenance schedule.
Every month:
• Check for proper and unobstructed float operation.
• Listen for proper check valve operation.
