What Is an Ejector Pump?
Ejector pumps or solid waste pumps are typically located in homes with
a basement or homes with sewer lines below the level of city sewer or
septic tank lines. Their main purpose is to pump sewage or grey water
up and out of the basement into a sanitary sewer line. There are two outlet
pipes coming from the ejector pump basin, one for sewage and one for sewer
gases. Often basement washing machines, sinks, and floor drains all drain
into the ejector pump basin where they are pumped out of the home.
What Is a Sump Pump?
Sump pumps are found in most homes that have a basement, cellar, or crawlspace.
A sump pump’s main purpose is to pump water out of the basin that
has accumulated from perimeter drains of the home or natural occurring
ground water. There is one outlet pipe coming out of the pump basin that
pumps water up and out of the home into the yard or exterior storm drain.
Typically, this pipe will be outfitted with a one-way valve that prevents
water from flowing back into the home.
