Sewage Ejector Pump

A sewage ejector pump is part of a system that can pump both solids and liquids up into the main sewer system.  It is also called a pump up ejector system.  This system is used when a bathroom, laundry room or any other type of plumbing fixture is installed below the main sewer or septic line grade.  Sewage ejector pumps are usually installed in basements.  The sump basin collects and holds about 30 gallons of waste for the average sized home.  The drain lines from various fixtures in the basement area are graded into the side of the pump basin.  When the level of wastewater reaches a certain height, a float on the sewage ejector pump is tripped.  The wastewater is then pumped out of the basin and up to the ground level and then out to the sewer or septic tank.  Once the level in the basin goes down the pump turns off until the next time it needs to pump.  De Hart Plumbing, serving Manhattan Kansas, Junction City Kansas and Topeka Kansas.
