Do I Need a Sewage Ejector Pump?
The drain and sewage systems in your home typically work by gravity, with the waste traveling downhill to carry it away from your home, but that isn’t always possible.
Sewage ejector pumps are needed in any home that:
- Has a sewer line that is below the municipal sewer line
- Has fixtures that are lower than the main sewer line
- Has utility sinks or bathrooms in the basement that are lower than the sewer line
- Has a septic system with a holding tank or leach field that is higher than the sewer line
Sewage Ejector Pump Installation & Replacement in Washington, DC & Northern Virginia
Most sewage ejector pumps will last seven to 10 years, depending on the location. If the pump serves your entire home, it will likely fail sooner than a pump that serves only a fixture or two.
In most cases, the pump motor will fail due to worn brushes or shorted windings, but the ejector pump can also fail due to:
- Leaking pipes
- A damaged impeller
When you need an ejector pump replacement, talk to the team at UAT. Our plumbers can recommend the best model and size for your needs, and we can provide a fast and professional ejector pump installation.
