How does a sewage ejector pump work?

A sewage ejector pump, also called a pump up ejector system, is used when a bathroom, laundry room or any other type of plumbing fixture is located below the grade of the main sewer or septic line. The wastewater is then pumped out of the basin and up to ground level and then out to the sewer or septic tank.

Keeping this in consideration, how long do sewage pumps usually last?

Sewage ejector pumps are located in a sewage ejector pump pit and use powerful jets to break up solid waste and send it into your septic tank or sewage system. A good sewage ejector pump, provided it is properly maintained, should last at least 7 – 10 years, with many lasting upwards of 20 or even 30 years.
