Sewage Ejector Pump Services in Allentown, PA by Tim Beil Plumbing

Did you know that for all of our engineering prowess, most of our plumbing systems rely on gravity to work? The sewer main is typically constructed at a lower elevation than the homes it serves, and sewage flows downhill into it without any external force being applied. There are some housing situations, however, where gravity can actively work against the sewer system. In those situations, you’re going to need a sewage ejector pump. Tim Beil Plumbing offers a full range of sewage ejector pump services, from installation to repair and maintenance. If you need ejector pump services, call us today to schedule an appointment. We offer comprehensive sewage ejector pump services.

 Tim Beil Plumbing provides sewage ejector pump services in Allentown, PA and the surrounding areas.

What is a Sewage Ejector Pump?

A sewage ejector pump, also called an "upflush pump," is a device designed to pump sewage uphill. They are commonly installed in homes that are downhill from the sewer main, or which have basement bathrooms that cannot take advantage of the normal disposal method. The ejector pump collects sewage, then forces it up whatever incline exists between it and the sewer main. If you don’t have a sewage ejector pump installed for some of these situations, your sewer system isn’t going to drain properly. Read on for more info on when you might need a sewage ejector pump.

Why You Might Need a Sewage Ejector Pump

As previously mentioned, sewage ejector pumps are the typical solution for areas that cannot make use of gravity to drain sewage. If you live on a hill, for example, you may well have this problem depending on where the sewer main is located. Attempting to use your sewer system in these situations without a sewage ejector pump can create some very nasty problems. Sewage can build up in your home’s sewer line, causing a clog and backing up into the plumbing system. This contaminates pipes that are only designed to handle fresh water, posing a health risk to you. If you don’t want to have your plumbing and sewer pipes cleaned out every month, you’re going to need to install a sewage ejector pump.

We Install and Service Sewage Ejector Pumps

Installing a sewage ejector pump is not an easy thing to do. You need to know exactly where in the plumbing system to install the unit, and how much force it needs to exert in order to keep everything running smoothly. The pump will also need to be wired into the home’s electrical grid, something that should never be handled by anyone but a professional. For all of these reasons and more, it is best if you trust us to handle your sewage ejector pump installation for you.

Ejector pumps can occasionally develop problems, just like any other system. If you suspect that your sewage ejector pump needs repairs of any kind, call Tim Beil Plumbing right away. We’ll restore the pump to proper function for you, ensuring that your home keeps disposing of sewage in an efficient and sanitary fashion. We can also replace old sewage ejector pumps.
