We have seen an increase in the installation of Liberty sewage ejector pumps due to modern home design and advancements in plumbing technology. We have been assisting developers with new home designs and retrofitting existing homes with pump-up ejector systems.
What is a Sewage Ejector Pump?
When plumbing fixtures are installed in basement bathrooms or laundry rooms below the septic system or main sewer line, solids handling pumps, pump-up ejector systems, or non-clog pumps are all used.
Sewage ejector pumps should be located in the sump basin below grade. Actually, they work just like a groundwater sump pump, only they are designed to pump out sewage instead of groundwater. The unit can collect up to thirty gallons of waste from sloped drain pipes in the home. As soon as the sump basement level reaches a certain level, the movable float will trigger the pump. This will take sewage waste to the sewer line or septic tank. The basin will drop as the float drops, and the pump will shut off as the level drops.
This technology can be adapted to use in toilets. Basement solids must be lifted into the sewer line so that they can be removed.
When your home is situated lower than your septic tank, a sewage ejector pump may be advantageous. Home sewage must be pumped into the septic tank via a two-inch outlet.
The sewage ejector pump has a large opening at the bottom. A lot of free space has been provided inside the volute, preventing plugging and clogging. It’s imperative to note that a sewage ejector is not a grinder pump, which chops, dices and slices solids into a macerated slurry. A sewage ejector passes solid waste to the septic system.
Most sewage ejector pumps are submersible, and installed in a sump basin, similar to a sump pump. Sump pumps remove rainwater from the home through seepage, whereas sewage ejectors remove waste or sewage.
Liberty Sewage Ejectors from Hoerner
Hoerner Heating & Plumbing is a proud reseller of Liberty Pumps sewage ejectors. With Liberty Pumps, you're sure to find the sewage ejector you need to suit your needs. A variety of sizes is available for different applications.
We also sell sewage grinder pumps, but it is not required for every application. Whenever your pump has to pump to a pressurised sewer main over 750 feet or across a high vertical distance (30 feet or more), you should consider a sewage grinder pump.
The sewage ejector pump is your preferred option if:
- The pump is hooked up to a septic tank;
- Septic waste is pumped to a gravity sewer main;
- You are pumping waste over a short distance at a low vertical distance.
Occasionally, there are exceptions to the rule. That's why it's a good idea to contact Hoerner Heating and Plumbing's plumbing experts. Call us now to discuss your plumbing project.
