If you’re a home owner, odds are you have a sump pump and an ejector pump, and if you don’t, you absolutely should. However, it can get confusing know which one is a sump pump, and which is the ejector, and what each of them do. We’re going to discuss the differences, as well as the importance of having one. This is one of those jobs that you should leave to the professionals because of how important they both are, as well as sometimes It can be difficult to install.
Sump pumps are typically located in spaces of the house that are uncommon to be, such as a basement or crawlspace. They are placed on the bottom level of a house to prevent water building up in the space from rain or snow. This is the main pump that is used to prevent flooding. It pushes water away to prevent the water from having an opportunity to build up.
The ejector pump deals solely on waste water and it is way more intricate than a sump pump. Ejector pumps deal with sewage from bathrooms or kitchen sinks. Ejector pumps are linked directly to the sewer lines and another type of exit to push sewer fumes to outside the home.
These pumps are necessary to keep your home in good working order. If there are ejector pump issues, dealing with sewer waste is super dangerous and should only be dealt with by professionals. If your sump pump isn’t working, water can pool in your basement and ruin your floorboards, as well as develop mold and mildew, which is another dangerous thing to deal with.
