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

Our old company gave us poor quality work, vague answers and high unnecessary costs due to questionable work done on our property.

I cannot say enough about how happy I am that I found Legacy Septic. I recommend them to everyone I know who has a septic system. Legacy Septic wants their customers to be just as knowledgeable about their systems as they are!! You feel like they are on your side!
