If you live in a home with a basement that has a bathroom and/or a washing machine in it, you’re almost guaranteed to have an ejector pump. Most plumbing relies on gravity to drain. An ejector pump is a device that pushes waste from plumbing that exists below the city’s main sewer lines up to the sewer line.
While it’s not the most glamorous device in your home, it is one of the most important ones to have. If something goes wrong with your sewage ejection pump, you could be in for a major plumbing problem. For reliable ejector pump repairs in San Rafael, CA and surrounding areas, contact Gotelli Plumbing today!
What are Sewer Ejector Pumps?
An ejector pump is a device used to push greywater and wastewater up into the sewage line from your basement or from plumbing installed below the main sewer line. Your ejector pump keeps sewage from backing up into your appliances and plumbing and helps you avoid costly, damaging floods.

What Repairs Does an Ejector Pump Need?
Sewage ejector pumps do as their name says – they eject sewage. Because of this, they work in a pretty harsh environment and are prone to breakdowns and failures. One common problem ejector pumps have is a broken switch. Other problems include clogs and obstructed discharge lines.
Sewage backups can be a more extensive and much messier problem – but if caught in time can be resolved relatively easily. Many sewage ejector pump problems occur because the pump was not installed correctly or is not the right size for your needs. Whatever the problem, Gotelli Plumbing can help with repairs, maintenance and replacement of your sewage ejector pump.
