Ejector pumps remove “gray water” from your basement. So if you wash your hands or go to the bathroom in the basement, that water gets sent to the septic tank or sewer by way of an ejector pump. So while a sump pump helps keep water out, an ejector pump is what pushes the water that you’re using in the basement out of your house.
With a job as important as an ejector pump’s, it’s essential to make sure it’s functioning properly. You don’t want sewage backing up into your basement! So if you notice anything unusual like loud noises or the motor continuing to run, you’ll want to have a professional inspect the system as soon as possible.
