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!

From the office (Jenny), to the field, as well as the pre inspection by George, Legacy is pleasant, and extremely thorough. I could not have asked for anything better. I would highly recommend Legacy Septic to anyone. Thanks!

Please put me on the schedule for a two year check. The crew, both the riser installers and the pump person were the best. They represented your company in the most positive manner. It will be an absolute pleasure to refer your company to anyone that asks. Thanks Again.
