I'm not sure what you mean by 3 kinds of pumps. However, a simple google search for RV Macerator will provide you with lots of reading material including answers to users questions and user reviews.

Looks like you got that from a Internet Search on:
What are the different types of Macerator pumps?
There are three different types of RV macerator pumps: portable RV macerator pumps, permanent RV macerator pumps, and 110v RV macerator pumps.

Portable and permanent are DC...majority of what RVrs use

*Portable.....twists onto end of dump line. Hookup DC Power (alligator clips), Hookup discharge hose (garden hose --3/4" or 1" work best), Hookup fresh water flush/rinse hose (standard garden hose to clean pump/discharge hose after pumping)

*Permanent.... typically installed on black dump line ...grey can go to it OR be bypassed


*110VAC...similar to above but need AC Power


Portable style


Flojet and SewerFlo are examples of portable


Permanent Style


Jabsco, Surflo, Flojet etc ...have Permanent Mount Styles



Here is a Comparison of 12 (portable, permanent)

I have a Portable Flojet....since 2008
Been reliable ---- once a year I disassembly pump head and clean the chopper blade and Impellor

There are " FlowJet " positive displacement pump type.

There are " SaniCon Turbo " centrifugal pump type.

There are " Water Powered High Velocity Jet " nozzle " type.

I know that the first 2 are sold as perment and portable mount.
Don't know much about the water powered one.

I have had both pump types and prefer the centrifugal type. Less chance of hair and heavy paper clogging.

My Flojet would get fouled by hair often, wrapping around the pump shaft slowing yhe motor and causing it to thermal shut down.
Othertimes the impeller would stick and not turn. There is a slot to free it up on the motor end.
