You will never have only liquid waste in a sewer situation - going to have minor solids like lint and grit and soap and such, and occasionally builtup sludge breaking free in the lines and moving to the lift pump - and commonly substantial clumps of grease with fiber/paper included if this is a septic tank lift pump to a leach field, so I recommend a normal lift pump (though not necessarily a grinder type if not handling kitchen or toilet waste) for long life.

My recommendation - a correctly sized Zoeller (my first choice) or Duramac for a normal residential application - you can get ones 10-20% cheaper but why go low-budget/low-quality on something like this. Your Septic System vendor (if a septic lift pump to leach field) or Plumber (if inside-the-house lift pump from a basement) can help with the proper line size and pump sizing and alarming.
