What Is a Sewage Ejector Pump?
Sewer systems and septic systems rely primarily on gravity to carry waste away form your home or business to the municipal sewer line or septic tank. Pipes are sloped down as they travel away from the fixtures and the building, allowing gravity to accelerate the water and carry the waste away. If you have fixtures like sinks or toilets located below the main sewer line, you will need an ejector pump to lift the wastewater up to proper height for disposal.
These fixtures will dispose of waste into a sealed sump pit and the sewage ejector pump will move wastewater from the sump pit to your main sewer line. The size of the pump will depend on the amount of wastewater it must process and how high the wastewater must be lifted.
For help determining the size and type of ejector pump you will need for your Chicago home or business, contact our team today.
The Difference Between a Sewage Ejector Pump & Sump Pump
Though they have a similar function, sump pumps and ejector pumps are a bit different. Sump pumps are designed to carry groundwater out of your basement to prevent flooding. Sump pump pits do not need to be sealed, and the water that a sump pump moves is relatively clean and easy to pump.
An ejector pump requires a sealed sump pit to minimize odors and protect your health. The motor and impeller of an ejector pump must be also strong enough to process wastewater and the solids it contains.

What Happens When an Ejector Pump Fails?
If your ejector pump fails, the fixtures that depend on it may stop draining properly. If the problem is not corrected, wastewater may start to back up into the drain that is the lowest or the closest to the ejector pump.
