How Long Do Ejector Pumps Last?
If your bathrooms are below your main sewer pipe, you may have sewage ejector pumps in your home or basement. These pumps move solid waste from your toilets and sinks to a point in your plumbing system where gravity can take over. This is achieved using powerful water jets that break up the waste and then force it up and into your septic tank or sewage system. A good sewage ejector pump should last at least 7-10 years. However, with proper installation and routine care, your pump can last 30 years or more.
A common reason people need to replace their sewage ejector pumps is due to faulty installation where plumbers cut corners or used the wrong sized pumps. However, the licensed technicians at Kline’s will determine the correct sewage ejector pump you’ll need and will install it right the first time. As far as maintenance goes, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind. First, make sure you throw trash in the trash. Things like feminine products should not be flushed down the toilet because these items harm your pump. Secondly, you need to conduct yearly professional maintenance where one of our guys comes and cleans out the junk you cannot reach deep down in your system.
