Why Are Sewer Ejector Pumps Used?

Sewage ejector pumps are often used in residential basements or commercial buildings where the main sewage line is higher than the basement plumbing pipes. Imagine a situation where a toilet was located below the main sewer line. A sewer ejector pump helps to elevate the flushed waste so that it can be discharged from the home or commercial property with all of the other waste water.

Tips to Ensure Your Sewer Ejector Pump is Setup Correctly

Your sewer ejector pump is designed to lift wastewater to the level of your main sewer drain. When the pump is working correctly, it pumps water out of an ejector pit until it is almost empty and then turns off until the drainage basin fills again with wastewater. You may begin to have issues with your sewer ejector pump when any of the following occurs:

  • The ejector pump is not powerful enough for your needs
  • The sump basin is not adequately sized
  • The ejector pump is not level
  • There’s no check valve on the drainage lines
  • The drainage lines are clogged
  • The drain lines are not adequately sized
  • The float valve or sensors on the sewer ejector pump aren’t working correctly

It’s also important to realize that sewer ejector pumps require a vent that goes from the ejector pit to either a separate plumbing vent or your main plumbing vent. If this vent becomes clogged, gases won’t be able to escape and your home could begin to develop an odor. The ejector pump vent also helps to maintain sufficient pressure in the ejector basin to ensure the drainage water is flowing in the proper direction.

At Dan’s Plumbing & Septic, we also recommend that your ejector pit is sealed with a removable cover. This helps maintain proper pressure in the basin and keeps pests and other debris out of the area and also helps to reduce odors around the ejector pump.

Sewer Ejector Pump Inspections

To ensure your sewer ejector pump is installed and functioning correctly, it’s imperative that you have it inspected regularly by a licensed plumbing company. We’ll be happy to perform a full inspection of your sewer ejector pump to ensure it is functioning as it should. We’ll inspect all pump fittings, look for any leaks or signs of corrosion and also test the functionality of the pump by pouring several gallons of water into the empty basin. Without these periodic inspections, you could be left with a flooded basement due to a malfunctioning sewer ejector pump.

"I have managed a mobile home park since 1988 in Anoka County. Dans Sewer Service was one of the first companies I ordered after I found how unreliable the past service was. Dans has been under contract with me ever since and has pumped our sludge tank, repaired sewer lines, cleaned out manholes, maintained sewer stacks on empty lots and has always found the time to "come when called". I highly recommend Dans Sewer Service to any commercial or private property."
