What is a Sewage Ejector Pump?
The sewage ejector pit pump or sump pump is used to move the groundwater into a perimeter drain system, usually installed at the base of your building’s foundation. As the water flows into the pump, it then reroutes the water to the nearest drain or dry well.
Failure to keep your sump pump in top working order can cause serious damage to your business’ building. All it takes is one bad storm and the next thing you know, your building is under water. This is why you must have your sewage ejector pit pump inspected and cleaned at least once a year to keep it working in peak condition.
At Action Plumbing, we have decades of experience working with sump pumps and sewer ejector systems. We can make sure it’s running properly and make any repairs if necessary. With 24/7 emergency service, if your sewage ejector pit pump stops working during a storm, we can quickly take care of the situation before any damage occurs to your building.
How a Sump Pump Works
Let’s say it’s been raining for the past couple of days. Water is starting to seep into your building. When the water reaches a certain level, it will set off a switch that will trigger your sump pump to start working. The pump will start removing the rising waters and directing it to a nearby storm strain, outdoor area, or a well, preventing flooding from occurring.
But if a sump pump hasn’t been regularly maintenance, the sewage ejector pump will fail to work properly. Some signs of a malfunctioning pump include:
- A musty, moldy, or mildew smell coming from your basement
- The float switch which turns the pump on becomes stuck
- Loud noises come from the pump while it’s working
- Failure to turn on completely
