Sewage ejector pumps are vital devices for anyone with plumbing in their basement or property that extends below the city’s main sewer line. If your ejector pump fails, your home could be left in a very messy situation. Any homeowner who has dealt with a sewage problem of any kind will agree – ensuring that your sewage system is efficient is in your best interest.
Avoid the hassle and expense caused by a failed ejector pump. Read on to better understand the signs of pump damage and always reach out to a professional team for reliable installations. When you’re in need of ejector pump replacement in the North Bay Area, call on the experts at Gotelli Plumbing.
Ejector Pump vs. Sump Pump
You might be wondering how ejector pumps work and why you would need one for your home. An ejector pump is a device used to push greywater, sewage and other wastewater up into the appropriate sewage line if you have a bathroom or washing machine in your basement or other plumbing below the main sewer line. Simply put, the ejector pump overcomes gravity to keep sewage from backing up into your appliances and plumbing fixtures if they’re set lower than your home’s main sewer line.
You need a sewage ejector pump if you want your wastewater to drain without creating a mess in your basement. This is different from a sump pump that manages groundwater to prevent flooding if your home is below the water table line. For trusted ejector pump replacement or installation, reach out to Gotelli Plumbing today!
When Should I Replace My Ejector Pump?
Ejector pumps are built to last about 10 years in your home. However, as they get older, problems can occur that could lead to sewage backups in your basement. Having your sewage ejector pump replaced when it’s nearing the end of its lifespan is the best way to prevent a sewage disaster in your home.
It’s more cost-effective and less stressful to replace your ejector pump before it fails from old age, especially since things could get very messy very fast if you wait until the pump breaks down. If your ejector pump is nearing its 10-year mark, reach out to our team for an inspection or to schedule your replacement today.
