About Your Home’s Sewage Pump
Knowing some basic facts about your home plumbing is the best way to prevent costly sewage pump repairs. By being aware of problems before they become serious, you can take corrective action to stop further damage. Here’s what you should know about sewage ejector pumps:
- Not all homes have one:Sewage pumps are installed in properties where sewage can’t move fast enough on its own to get to your home or municipal septic system. This includes most homes with an elevated septic tank or a bathroom in the basement.
- Choosing the right size is essential:Several different sizes and models of sewage pumps are available. A pump must supply sufficient power to move waste at a minimum rate of two feet/second. Certain models have a built-in grinder feature to reduce the possibility of clogging.
- You need to watch what you flush:Plumbing systems outfitted with an ejection pump are even more sensitive than normal. To avoid costly septic pump repairs, be especially careful to avoid flushing feminine hygiene products, oils, disposable wipes and other non-degradable items.
Signs Your Sewage Ejector Pump May Require Repair
Your septic pump may require repair if it includes foul smells, floods, improper cycling and unusual noises. If you suspect a problem with your ejector pump, or with any other component of your home septic or plumbing system, contact Open-Drains right away. Septic problems are both annoying and a potential health risk — our team of licensed professionals can provide fast repairs at a price that won’t break the bank.
