Sewage Ejector Pump Smells!
Posted by KippH on January 29, 2003 at 13:56:51:
We have just bought this property with a full bath installed in the lower level (basement) the ejector pump has a lift of approx. 9 ft (vert.) to the main sanitary drain located approx. 15 ft away (horiz) (4" main) we have been getting odors from the pump room, so I sealed all the cracks in the room & put seals on the door to stop the odor from exiting the room. Well they still seem to escape & I cannot figure out why! the system looks to be installed properly, I have not checked the seals on the tank, that was going to be my next step! But I have been looking at installing a vent blower or fan on the vent stack to relieve the smell from accumulating! What does anyone think???

Thanks,
KippH
