A sewage ejector pump, also called a pump up ejector system, is used when a bathroom, laundry room or any other type of plumbing fixture is located below the grade of the main sewer or septic line
The wastewater is then pumped out of the basin and up to ground level and then out to the sewer or septic tank. Sewage ejector pumps are located in a sewage ejector pump pit and use powerful jets to break up solid waste and send it into your septic tank or sewage system. A good sewage ejector pump, provided it is properly maintained, should last at least 7 – 10 years. Back-ups occurring in an ejector pump tank or sewage pit area are usually caused by a failure of the pump to discharge wastewater out of the pit.
