In response to Re: sewage ejector install
: You have a venting problem. When the pump starts, it needs air to replace the water being discharged and it is getting it by sucking the water out of the toilet. But, since air should not normally be able to get out of the system due to the one way nature of an AAV, the toilet should not flush properly in normal usage, either.

: : I`ve installed a sewage ejector in my basement and have hooked up a shower,toilet,sink to this.I have made sure
: : to install the backflow preventor ,but I used a novent system instead of venting to the outside.The question I have is
: : when in the shower if the pump kicks on it flushes the toilet is this normal or is there a venting problem.

No-vent valves are notoriously finicky & unreliable in the least challenging applicaitons, like a bathroom sink. An ejector pit NEEDS to be vented to the outside, either directly or by tying into the existing vent system-PERIOD!
