A sewage ejector is a pump designed to lift sewage to a height for gravity drainage. In many basements, the sewer discharge line is a few feet off the ground. So, if you want to have any sort of plumbing fixture in your basement, you will need a sewer ejector pump tied into the sewer line.
The ejector pump works much like a sump pump, but instead of pumping groundwater up and out of your basement through a dedicated discharge line, it pumps wastewater or sewage up and out through the sewer line or out to the septic drainage field.
By installing an ejector pump, you can install any plumbing in your basement, including a bathroom, laundry room, kitchen, or bar sink in a basement where the sewer line leaves the house above the basement floor. The best time to install a sewer ejector pump is when you are finishing your basement. It gives you options beyond a home office or playroom.
Call us before you hire someone to finish your basement, and we can make recommendations and give you an estimate for sewage ejector pump installation.
If you have an existing ejector pump that has failed, is making funny noises, or not doing the job as well as it should, we may be able to repair it. If it’s an older pump, we may recommend replacing it.
