If you have one and the pump has failed, or if you smell a foul odor, our experienced plumbers can replace the pump, service the station, and reseal the basin. We understand these systems very well, from single and duplex pump stations to controllers with alternating pump functions and more.

Ejector Pump Repair Services

Ejector pumps are ideal for homes with water utilities below the municipal wastewater line or septic system. Wastewater and solid waste materials from washing machines, toilets, sinks, and showers empty into a sewer basin with an ejector pump. Once the sewer basin is filled, the ejector pump pushes the wastewater vertically up the waste pipes and into the main sewer line, where it will empty into the city sewer line or a septic tank.

Signs of a Failing Ejector Pump

Safeguarding your home against potential plumbing issues is crucial, and recognizing the signs of a failing sewage ejector pump is vital to preventing sewer backups and related problems. Sewage ejector pumps, also known as sewer ejector pumps or grinder pumps, play a pivotal role in maintaining proper wastewater flow. Here are key signs to watch for, indicating that your sewage pump may be facing issues that require attention.

  • Frequent Sewer Backups: If you find yourself dealing with recurrent sewer backups, it may be a sign that your sewage ejector pump is not functioning optimally.
  • Unusual Noises: Strange or excessive noises, such as grinding or clunking sounds, coming from the sewage pump during operation can indicate mechanical problems.
  • Slow Draining Fixtures: Sluggish drainage in sinks, toilets, or other fixtures may suggest a compromised sewage pump affecting the wastewater removal process.
  • Foul Odors: The presence of unpleasant odors around the sewage pump or in the vicinity could signify potential issues, including leaks or malfunction.
  • Visible Leaks: Any visible leaks or moisture around the sewage pump or in the pump pit require immediate attention to prevent further damage.
  • Pump Runs Continuously: An ejector pump that runs continuously without cycling off could be a sign of an overworked or malfunctioning system, leading to potential failures.

Being vigilant about these signs ensures the early detection of problems with your sewage ejector pump, allowing for timely repairs or replacement to maintain a healthy and smoothly operating plumbing system.
