Do you need a sewer ejector pump & replacement company in Cheltenham, Elkins Park, or the Greater Philadelphia area? If you have a bathroom, laundry room, or kitchenette in your basement that is below the grade of your septic line or main sewer line, you need a sewer ejector pump and a reliable company to install it. In other parts of your home, the flow of wastewater depends upon gravity. Gravity can’t help plumbing fixtures that are already lower than the sewer or septic. This pump pushes solids and liquids up to ground level and then out to the sewer or septic tank.
The sewer ejector pump sits in a sump basin that is dug below grade. Typically, it can hold around 30 gallons of waste. The pump has a float attached that starts the pump when the wastewater reaches a specified height. When the wastewater level drops below the float, the pump shuts off until it is triggered again.
Is it Time for a New Pump?
There are a few signs to look for that signal your pump is not working correctly and it is time for a sewer ejector pump repair. Beware of the following:
- A continuously running pump. The pump is supposed to shut off when enough wastewater has been evacuated. If your pump does not shut off, the sensors have likely failed. This not only wastes electricity, it will eventually wear out your pump.
- The odor of sewage in your basement. This could be a sign of leaky pipes or that the pump is not emptying enough of the sump basin. Either way you should give us a call as both require professional repair.
- The pump is running but the sump basin is not being emptied. In this case, the pump could be clogged and needs a good cleaning, or it is no longer powerful enough to draw wastewater from the pit. A sewer ejector pump replacement may be necessary in this scenario.
