Sewage Ejection Pumps
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. Because the flow of drain-wastewater depends on gravity, plumbing systems in which these fixtures are located below the level of the main sewer line all require some means of elevating the waste water so it can flow properly. Most commonly, ejector pumps are used in homes with basement bathrooms or laundry rooms. Not all basements require them, but when the municipal sewer lines come into the house at a higher level, the ejector pump can pump both liquids and solids up into the main sewer or septic line.
