Do you have a sump pump in your home?
Not all homes have sump pumps or sewage ejectors in their crawlspaces or basement. A sump pump is something that is typically only needed when your plumbing isnt deep enough for a basement bathroom or if you have excessive ground water. The sump pump is a combination or a few different parts, one consisting of a tank or pit in the ground that could be a concrete sump pump tank, plastic or other material such as a fiberglass tank with a steel lid. Second you have the pump that actually pumps the water or sewage and third is a set of floats that operate the pump(s). These sump pumps and sewage ejectors tie in to your sewer piping at a point where it can gravity drain from there. What tells the pump to turn on and off is a float that has an on/off point inside it or a set of multiple floats. These can range from dual pumps for commercial properties to single pumps for residences. You can get sump pumps with lights and alarms on them as well that will notify you if they fail so you can stop using water and keep your basement from flooding. One of the other names that you may here these called is a lift station. A lift station is the complete setup, pump, guide rails, controls, and floats all combined.
Sump Pump Maintenance?
When was the last time you cleaned out your sump pump or ejector? This is not a pleasant job for most people or something that is even on a persons "list of things to do today". Things like sand, egg shells and other things that are heavier than water will build up in the bottom of the tank and eventually start causing you problems as they are not getting pumped up and out of your building. Yearly maintenance on your sump pump or sewage ejector could save you money in the long run by keeping the junk out of it, double checking the float levels and making sure they are set right so you don't short cycle the pumps and shorten the life of them.
