A sewage ejector pump that works well should last at least seven to ten years. However, if properly installed and maintained, your pump may endure for more than 30 years. Plumbers who cut corners or utilize incorrect-sized pumps are among the most frequent causes of sewage ejector pump failures.
If the pump fails, it will not function. The sewage will pile up and overflow eventually. Every few years, the float switch must be replaced. The ejector pump system has a lifespan of less than 20 years.
The basement wastewater is carried up to the main sewer line by the ejector pump, which was installed to prevent sewage from backing up into your home.
Sump Pumps manage groundwater. People often call the sewage ejector bumps in their basement a “sump pump”. However, sump pumps are used to pump water out of a space, i.e. a flooded basement or crawl space. Sump pumps are meant to be used for temporary periods of time.
The ejector pump is not properly positioned. The float valve or sensors are out of alignment. Drainage lines are clogged. The drain lines are too big or too small
The cost of installing a sewage pump varies widely, depending on the brand and model you choose. The average for parts and labor is $1,200 in the United States. Installing an ejector pump yourself is a straightforward task if you’re handy and the correct plumbing fixtures are already in place.
