The Difference Between a Sump Pump and Sewage Ejector
The difference between a sump pump and a sewer ejector is fairly straight forward. A sump pump is designed to remove excessive ground or rain water in and around a basement or crawl space to prevent prevent flooding. This requires that the sump pump is located in the very lowest spot in the basement or crawl space, where excess water from ground seepage or excessive rain is directed in to a sump pump pit or shallow well. The sump pump in turn detects the excessive water in the pit via a float valve that automatically starts the pump, and moves the water outside the house or building where it can properly drain.
A sewage ejector is needed to remove potentially contaminated waste water from the sinks, tubs, and showers that aren’t properly draining via natural gravitational force. For example, sometimes waste water in a bathtub in the basement can be located too low in the home to drain by gravity. This is is where a sewage ejector pump is used to pump the waste water into the sanitary sewer line.
