Scenario - New construction
15o feet of 2" pipe connected to the output of a Sewage Ejector System (41 gal) with a 1/2 HP pump.
Output is connected to backflow preventer valve and a union connector.

Septic system pipe front end - where I am connecting - is 3 feet below the height of the ejector system grade.
This might affect the speed of the flow? it will be hauling a$$?

I was contemplating inserting a cleanout tap about halfway down the line around 80 feet.
Is this asking for trouble to insert a "place" for sh1t to collect? ...or worth it for instant access to cleanout?

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
