An ejector pump is used when you have toilets, tubs, or other wastewater plumbing below the public sewer line. If your waste can’t flow into the sewer line via gravity, you’ll need a sewage ejector pump to lift and discharge the waste into the sewer. This is commonly seen in newly built basements that have bathrooms, tubs, and kitchens but no way to lift the waste to the main drainage line.
Ejector pumps are meant to pump both solids and liquids and consist of a few basic components: a tank and the pump and motor. The tank is buried and made of a corrosion-resistant material (usually fiberglass or polyethylene) with a watertight seal. The top of the tank is often flush with the floor of the lowest area. A typical tank has a diameter of 18 inches and a depth of 30 inches. The pump and motor work by means of a floating level sensor. When the liquid in the tank rises to a certain point, the pump is activated. When the float drops down, the pump switches off. Most households operate with a ½ HP pump.
Sewage ejector pumps don’t often require a lot of maintenance other than clearing out the occasional blockage. While some ejector pumps can run “dry” for a period of time without damage, it’s recommended adjusting the pump float so that the level never drops below the body of the motor.
A blockage may occur due to a few different factors. You may have a solid too large for the diameter of the pump or mineral debris buildup. Keep in mind that operating your pump while blocked may cause damage.
Inspecting your ejector pump is a good characteristic to keep to help prevent damage and notice any potential problems ahead of time. An inspection consists of 4 parts:
