sewage ejector pump nerves
Posted by Melissa on March 19, 2002 at 20:47:35:
Help! I am in the process of purchasing my first home. The entire house is hooked to a sewage ejector
pump system. I am unfamiliar with these units and only find information regarding using them for
basement sewage only. Is it normal to have an entire house dependant on the pump? Are there common
problems associated with these? Can the main sewage line back up into our system causing flooding
through the drains? Do the check-valves clog? What are some precautions that I should be aware of
with these pumps. Please put my mind at ease, I am very aprehensive about this system and wonder
if we should pass on the house. Thanks so much!
