Sewer Ejector Pump Services in Corona, CA
Do you know how your pipes work? It’s fairly simple really—the pressure of your water supply allows it to flow from your faucets, while gravity enables sewage to drain to your sewer system or septic tank. However, sometimes that gravity is resisted by the layout of the home—and that’s where the sewage ejector pump comes in. This gives your plumbing system some assistance with ejecting sewage away from your property. If your Corona, CA-area home is on a hill, or if you live in the canyons or closer inland, then this pump is especially useful.
If you find yourself in need of a sewer ejector pump, you’ve come to the right place. The Sunny Plumber SoCal can install a new pump for your home, replace an old or broken one, or provide repairs and maintenance. We assume that a new or broken sewage pump likely isn’t something you want to handle on your own, so call on the superior plumbing service provided by our team of bright and shiny plumbers, who won’t show our hiney!

How Do Sewer Ejector Pumps Work?
Sewage ejector pumps operate by moving liquid and solid waste—typically up to about two inches in diameter—from a sewage basin into your sewer system or septic tank. They are typically most useful for homes that have a septic tank installed, and become necessary when gravity alone can’t bring the sewage to its destination.
This process starts when waste from your drainage system moves into a basin located at a low point in your home, typically the basement or somewhere else below floor level. As this basin fills up, a float lifts, and the pump switches on when the sewage reaches a certain level. Then, sewage is forced up toward the septic tank.
Professional Sewer Pump Services Are Essential
Before purchasing and installing a sewer ejector pump, there are a few important details to keep in mind. First of all, the installation of a sewage pump is not something that can be handled by the average homeowner or even an amateur handyman off the street. If the pump isn’t installed correctly or sized properly for your home, then you may end up with a huge problem on your hands, including the possibility of sewage backup in your home.
Our highly trained and experienced team will ensure that your pump is the right size for your Corona, CA home and that it’s set up to do its job effectively and efficiently. Additionally, in order to prevent problems with your sewage pump it is important to know what it can and cannot handle. For example, flushing disposable cleaning wipes is not a good idea, as they can clog up even the most efficient and well–maintained sewer ejector pump.
Whatever your sewer ejector pump needs are, the family–friendly staff at The Sunny Plumber SoCal can handle the job, including maintenance to inspect and clean out your pump as needed. We also offer high quality repairs and replacement services.
