What is a Sewer Ejector Pump?
Sewer ejector pumps and grinder pumps come in a variety of sizes. They are designed to remove solid waste when plumbing fixtures are considerably lower than the level of the main sewer line or septic line.
For example, if you have a toilet located below your main sewer line, the sewer ejector pump will force it upward so that it can be discharged with the rest of your wastewater. These pumps are very common in basement bathrooms and basement laundry rooms.

How Does a Sewer Ejector Pump Work?
Sewer ejector pumps sit in a holding tank, called a sump basin, that’s buried underground and collects waste. Drain lines are connected to the sump basin and when the wastewater in the sump basin reaches a certain level, a float will activate the pump. Then, wastewater is pumped out of the basin and up into the septic tank or central sewer system.
Grinder Pump Service
Sewage grinder pumps are typically installed when the vertical lift exceeds 20 feet or when the sewer or septic line is a long distance away from the home. These powerful pumps actually “grind” up sewage before pumping it up. They not only help sewage flow more efficiently, but they also help prevent clogs. Up until recently, sewage grinder pumps were only meant for commercial use, but they’re now available for homeowners as well.
