If you’ve ever experienced sewage that backs up or just won’t flush, you understand how much frustration and property damage it can cause. The smell alone is enough to drive you crazy. Sometimes, a leak starts small and goes unnoticed. Other times, the backup can cause an enormous burst, causing severe and costly damage to your home. Everything from your furniture to your carpeting and precious valuables can be destroyed in the process. Sewage water is extremely unsanitary and creates numerous health hazards that must be addressed immediately when it enters your living space. The effected area needs to be disinfected, carpeting must be replaced, and depending on the extent of water damage, the flooring and walls in your home may need to be repaired. And the awful smell can take months to dissipate!
All homes rely on gravity to discharge waste, but when gravity alone doesn’t provide enough force, an ejector pump is needed—especially if your bathroom is located in the basement or at the same level as your sewage lines! Plumbing pipes in a basement run through the ceiling, and showers/toilets/sinks are installed below the pipes. This makes it almost impossible for gravity to expel the sewage up and out of the house on its own. An ejector pump pumps the sewage through the lines, preventing the waste water from backing up and clogging your pipes.
If you have a basement in your home, you probably already have a sump pump installed. Great! But a sump pump and ejector pump play very different roles in preventing flooding in your house. A sump pump collects groundwater, only, and pumps it out of your house when excess water accumulates. An ejector pump, is able to process solid waste and collects water from floor drains, including the waste water in your basement bathroom or washroom. This is why both sump pumps and ejector pumps are essential installations in your home.
