How Do Ejector Pumps Work?

Typical sewer systems rely on gravity to transport waste out of the home. Basement bathrooms, laundry rooms, and kitchens, however, are below ground. Therefore, they require a piece of equipment that can pump waste up and out of the belowground rooms. Any plumbing fixtures you install below the level of your main septic or sewer line will require ejector pumps.

Typically installed in your basement, the ejector pump sits in a sump basin dug into the ground. This basin can usually hold about 30 gallons of waste. When the wastewater in the sump basin reaches a certain amount, the ejector pump ejects it from the basin and up to ground level. From there, the wastewater goes to your septic tank or sewer. After the pump drains enough, it automatically turns off until the next time it’s needed.

Ejector pumps have a few crucial parts and components for operation. These include a check valve, vent, and pump outlet line. Each part must operate efficiently and correctly for the pump to work properly. A broken check valve, for example, can lead to wastewater draining back into the sump basin – wasting energy re-pumping the same waste and potentially leading to overflow. When something goes wrong with your ejector pump, don’t hesitate to contact Kingston Plumbing & Heating, Inc. for repairs or replacements.
