You should only use a pump if the house drain is not deep enough to make the connection to the bathroom. A pump has the potential to get plugged up, the motor can burn out, or the switch can fail. All, or any, of which will cause the pump basin to overflow.

: : : I know I'm looking at some serious concrete busting to get pipes in place, but is it nuts to convert the ejector pit for my floor drain to a sewage ejector for the toilet, sink and shower? Do I have to worry about sewage backing up and coming out of the floor drain?
