Septic Smell from Sewage Ejector
Posted by Rick Twining on September 27, 2002 at 10:28:12:
We just purchased a 3 year old house. The basement is totally unfinished, but has all the plumbing for a bathroom roughed in, including the container for a sewage ejector. There is a line running from the container into the main sewage line to the septic system. Occasionally, after using the showers on the main floor, there is a strong sewer smell coming from the container. The rubber stoppers on the top cover were loose, so I have made sure the are seated properly in their holes, and will see if this stops the problem. My question is this, if the check valve is installed, should the odors from the main sewage line be able to get into the cotainer?
