Is My Sewer Ejector Pump in Trouble?

Monday, December 24th, 2018

technician-in-doorThe last thing you really want to run into problems with is the sewer side of your plumbing system. For very obvious reasons, problems with your sewer line or septic tank can really lead to some very unhygienic and hugely undesirable situations. There is another component that many homeowners rely on that can also run into problems, though. This is the sewer ejector pump. If the layout of your property means that gravity alone is not enough to get waste to the septic system, then you use one of these pumps.

When that happens, the basin that your sewer ejector pump in Corona, CA pumps sewage out of can fill up. This is not a situation in which you want to come anywhere near an overflow scenario. Here are a few signs that you need to call The Sunny Plumber Corona.
