Sewer Ejection Pump Maintenance

  • REDUCE Chance of Emergencies
  • RECEIVE Premier Customer Attention
  • REDUCE the Need for Corrective Maintenance
  • SAVE on Parts purchased!

Your home’s septic system includes a SEWER EJECTOR PUMP.

Sewer ejector pumps are typically installed in basements that have bathrooms or laundry rooms below the sewer line.   They pump waste into the main septic line.  Your owner’s manual is a good resource, and a licensed professional should check your sewer ejector pump regularly.  There are a few things that you can do to help extend the life of your sewer ejector pump.

The top of the sump basin should be sealed properly so that no waste or smell can be emitted.  If the seal is not tight and effectively sealed, please consult with a professional.

TOILET PAPER ONLY

Toilet paper is the only thing that you can safely flush.

  • AVOID Flushing…
  • FLUSHABLE WIPES!  – NO WIPES!
  • COFFEE GROUNDS

The Best! This is why I use Legacy and continue to refer them. Without getting into a long drawn out story...several years ago my septic system was failing. With the help of George Schooley, my system was repaired properly at a fraction of the cost compared to another company in Carroll County!
