It's an advanced SQL packet sniffer bolted on to port 1434. Throttles bandwidth.

<<Is it used for water or another liquid?>>

Not water, but may or may not be a liquid. More often not...at least that's my understanding.

<<...deep well?>>

No

<<Submersible sewage pump

Close, but this gizmo has a dual usage, (not just pumping.)

<<Sewage Grinder Pump?>>

Yes..... I was looking for the primary purpose of THIS gizmo....so I'm kinda stuck.

You've given a very generic description....so I'm asking for help from a moderator to referree the answer?

Sewage grinder pump

The sewage grider pump reduces all forms of sanitary waste to a non-clogging slurry and pumps it through a network of small-diameter pipes. Since gravity is replaced by the power of the pump, sewer systems need not run downhill nor require large-diameter pipes, deep trenches, multiple lift stations - or their associated costs.

Hehe....here I thought this gizmo was just for one purpose, I guess not. Further reading on it says #12 is pretty much correct.

Manure Pump [haywardgordon.com]

I thought that pumping manure was it's only purpose because I looked around for another use for it...but 'lo and behold'-it can be used for lift stations...

Interesting, I guess it has many uses:

-Waste Treatment (scum pits, difficult lift stations, digester recirculation, digester scum blankets)

-Pulp and Paper (wood yard and processing plant sumps, chip and bark handling

-Food Processing & Rendering (fruit & vegetable waste, beef, poultry and seafood waste parts, fleshings, hide, bones, fat)

-Miscellaneous (latex skins, plastics, paint sludges, detergent cakes, lagoon cleaning)
