Frequently Asked Questions
How long should a sewage ejector pump last?
A high-quality ejector pump should last a minimum of seven to 10 years. You can extend that life span by having regular maintenance performed. With comprehensive tune-ups, your ejector pump could serve you for 20 to 30 years.
Why does my ejector pump keep failing?
Shoddy installations are a common cause of repeat failures, particularly if you bought a tank that's too small for your home. Float switches are another common weak point. Their life spans are a fraction of the pump itself, so you'll probably need to repair or replace them often. If your pump failure is preventing waste from being ejected from the basin, you might have a blockage. Cotton swabs and other nonbiodegradable waste are a common cause of this kind of clog. Frequent blockages will wear out your pump and shorten its life span, so it's crucial to use your sewer line correctly. Foreign objects that aren't biodegradable are best reserved for the trash and not the toilet.
Are sewage ejector pumps noisy?
Sewage ejector pumps and sump pumps tend to slam closed quite loudly, but you can silence your check valve by replacing it with a soft close option. Your pump might also vibrate and rattle when the pipes are badly secured. A tighter connection should give you a quieter night. If you hear loud humming, look for a stuck check valve or damaged impeller. Both issues are easy and affordable to repair.
Do I need a sewage ejector or grinder pump for my septic system?
Sewage ejector pumps are designed for high volumes and long distances. They can handle about 200 gallons a minute across over 700 feet. In contrast, grinder pumps can function at a higher elevation. They're power-hungry and expensive to install, so they're usually reserved for commercial and institutional applications. As their name suggests, grinder pumps cut up hard solids, so they're capable of servicing facilities with multiple restrooms. Sewage ejector pumps don't chop up solids. They use a spinning motion to force sewage out of the outlet via pressure. They're typically used for residential applications.
