Some home drainage systems rely on gravity to keep water flowing. But if you have a waste pipe that runs below the sewer or septic line, gravity won’t do you much good.
These types of systems need a reliable sewer ejector pump. Keep water flowing out of your basement by contacting Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating & Electric today for sewer ejector pump plumbing services. We’re proud to serve Chicago’s North Shore and Chicago’s Northwest suburbs including Highland Park, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, and more.
Sewer Ejector Pump Repair
If your sewer ejector pump doesn’t seem to be working properly, it may be time to hire sewer ejector pump services in Lincolnshire, IL. There are several signs that your sewer ejector pump needs to be repaired.
For instance, if water doesn’t appear to be flowing properly, the unit may have a clog. Our experts will need to disassemble and thoroughly clean it to get it back in working order.
If water isn’t draining at all, it could be that there is no power in your ejector pump because of something like a tripped switch. Repairs might be the only way to restore power to the unit.
Another potential problem could be the float switch – a small device that activates your pump. If the float switch has excessive wear and tear, it won’t trigger the pump, and waste will stay in your basement drain pipes until you repair the float switch.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, contact a licensed plumber to make the appropriate repairs.
Sewer Ejector Pump Replacement
Not all damage to sewer ejector pumps is repairable. Usually, sewer ejector pumps have a useful life of about 10 years, so you should expect to arrange a replacement pump in your home from time to time.
The precise type of sewer ejector pump you need depends on the drainage requirements in your home. You need a pump that matches the GPM (gallons per minute) rate your sink and appliances require.
Your home’s GPM will be dependent on two main factors. The first is how many appliances are connected to your pump (washing machines, dishwashers, sinks, or tumble driers). The second is how frequently you use these appliances and whether you use more than one unit simultaneously.
If your sewer ejector is beyond repair, don’t worry – you have plenty of options. We can help you find and install a new system that meets the specific needs of your home.
