In response to Re: basement ejector pump
A. Not a big headache, but will require periodic maintenance.
B. Zoeller is the most common one used in this area, and the one I would use.
C. Depends on your local area's pricing scheme.
D. Size of the bathroom is immaterial. The water lift height is the determinant. 1/3 or 1/2 should be the minimum.

: I am remodeling a basement and want to put a full bath in. The house is built on a grade and the waste runs out to the high street side...8 ft off the concrete basement floor. I am looking at ejector pump systems and would like an objective opinion.

: a. Am I buying a big headache?
: b. Like most products...are some brands better than others? Little Giant seems to be the most reasonably priced.
: c. What should I expect to spend for pump, basin and hardware?
: c. With a little use spare bath like this, do I need more than 1/4 HP?

: Thanks for the feedback...this board has been very helpful...
