Installing a Sewer Pump Requires Care & Precision

Aurora and Naperville Sewage Ejector Pump Installation

Although ejector pumps aren’t necessary in all homes, they serve an essential purpose in the homes where they are needed.

This type of sewer pump, typically found in basements, is needed when a bathroom or major plumbing fixture is installed below the sewer line level. This positioning prevents wastewater from flowing out naturally. A pump can give gravity a hand in moving your wastewater upward and out of your home.

It pumps wastewater into the drainage system when the municipal sewer line connects with the home above these fixtures. If you need a new or replacement ejector pump, hire professionals; installing one can be complicated, and you want to make sure the job is done right.

When Do You Need a Professional to Install a Sewer Ejector Pump?

You might consider getting an ejector pump if:

  • You have a bathroom, laundry room or kitchen in your basement below the plumbing lines.
  • You plan to install a bathroom, laundry room or kitchen in your basement.
  • You have problems with clogs, backups and flooding.

Without an ejector pump, wastewater and solid waste will start to build up in the lower fixtures. This accumulation can lead to severe clogs, backups and flooding. Stagnant waste and wastewater can also emit foul odors and become a breeding ground for dangerous bacteria. It's best to install an ejector pump to avoid clogs and backups and keep your basement sanitary. 

Sewer ejector pumps usually last for several years with the proper maintenance. If your pump is noisy or you struggle with foul odors and frequent clogs, it might be time to replace it. Perfect Home Services offers ejector pump installation and replacement when you need it. 

Installing Ejector Pump in Your Home

The process of installing a new ejector sewage pump typically involves several key steps. The specifics of the procedure will vary depending on a number of different factors, including where the pump needs to be installed, whether or not you have an existing sewage ejector pump system, and more.

Typically, professionals will follow these essential steps, regardless of the circumstances:

Choosing the Pump Size

Not all pumps are ideal for all homes.

The more drains feeding the sewage basin, the larger and stronger the pump needs to be. On top of that the distance the wastewater must travel to reach the sewer line will impact this decision. Some pumps may not be strong enough to move the wastewater throughout the system reliably if it needs to travel a far distance.

Installing the Tank

If you’re simply replacing an ejector pump, you may already have space for the ejector pit/tank. If so, installation may simply involve removing the old one and installing the new one in its place.

On the other hand, if this is your first ejector pump, you’ll have to determine the appropriate location for the tank, then dig a large pit to bury it in.

Installing the Pump

The connections between the pump and the various other components of the system must be properly sealed. If they aren’t, wastewater could leak into your home, potentially resulting in damage and health issues.

The specifics of the installation process differ from one model to another. Following the manufacturer’s instructions closely is very important at this stage, otherwise you could face costlier problems in the future.
