What Is a Sewage Ejector Pump?
A sewage ejector pump helps move water and waste away from sinks, toilets, showers, and other drainpipes that sit lower on the property than the main line.
The pump collects this waste in a tank and pushes it up toward your main sewer line. At that point, gravity helps it flow to the city line or septic tank.
Benefits of Installing a Sewage Ejector Pump
While not all basements require a sewage ejector pump, they are key for ensuring the smooth transfer of wastewater and sewage out of your home.
A sewage ejector pump will:
- Prevent sewage backups
- Reduce the risk of sewage odors and clogs in your home
- Allow you to have functioning plumbing below ground level
- Provide long-lasting operation
- Increase your property value

Frequently Asked Questions
What causes sewage pump failure?
Most pumps fail because:
- Homeowners bypass the float switch for long periods with direct power: The float switch activates the pump when the fluid reaches a certain level. If it stops working, homeowners can bypass the float switch to supply direct power to the pump. However, the issue comes with running your pump all the time, which will cause premature motor failure.
- Homeowners run the pump continuously with blocked discharge lines: Most clogs can be pushed through by running the pump longer, but if you have a major backup, you should shut off the pump and call a plumber. Otherwise, your pump will continue to run for long periods, leading to overheating and motor failure.
Both put additional stress and wear and tear on the pipe, which will cause it to fail. It’s important to pay attention to your sewage pump and don’t hesitate to schedule service.
How long do sewage ejector pumps last?
Your sewage ejector pump should last seven to 10 years with routine maintenance.
What's the difference between a sewage ejector pump and a sump pump?
While these two systems have a similar goal and are often found in basements, they serve different functions.
A sump pump removes water from heavy rains to avoid basement flooding, while a sewage ejector pump moves wastewater up to the main sewer line.
