Sewer Ejector Pump Installation Contractors in San Francisco


A sewage ejector pump, also called pump up ejector system, is used when a bathroom, laundry room, or any other type of plumbing fixture is installed below the main sewer or septic line grade. Sewage ejector pumps are usually installed in basements. The ejector pump is part of a system that can pump both liquids and solids up into the main sewer or septic line.

Sewage ejector pumps are meant to sit in a sump basin that is cut and dug into the ground below grade. The sump basin collects and holds about 30 gallons of waste on average for an average sized home. The drain lines from the various fixtures in the basement area are graded into the side of the sump basin. When the level of waste water in the sump basin reaches a certain height a float on the sewage ejector pump is tripped. The waste water is then pumped out of the basin and up to ground level and then out to the sewer to septic tank. Once the level in the basin goes down the pump turns off until the next time it needs to pump.

Sewage ejector pumps – also sometimes referred to as sewage grinder pumps – are devices designed to pump household sewage or “backwater” to a destination such as an elevated septic tank or a city sewer.

Sewer ejector pumps are necessary even if a home is built nearly at the same level as its septic tank or sewer line, because often times the landscape prevents sewage from flowing fast enough on its own as needed. Sewage ejector pumps are typically used in homes where a basement bathroom is located lower than the height of the sewer line which leaves the home. The sewage ejector pump lifts waste from the basement bathroom up to the sewer line where it then flows out to a septic tank or community sewer.
