Sewage Ejector vs. Sump Pump

Sump Pump Installation

Minnesota homes endure a significant amount of moisture from downpours of rain in the spring, summer, and fall seasons, and snow accumulation in the winter months. In addition to the constant threat of leakage from sewage and waste water, homes are virtually always at risk of flooding. Sump pumps can help prevent this threat and keeping your ejector pump in top working condition can save homeowners thousands of dollars in potential water or waste damage.

Sewage Ejector Pumps

A sewage ejector pump removes waste and sewage from your home. When working efficiently, it transfers waste out of your home and into a septic tank or city sewer. Issues such as sewage back-ups, clogs or leaks can occur when sewage ejector pumps are not maintained correctly. If a sewage ejector pump fails, raw sewage can flood a home, which creates a health hazard. Preventative maintenance, redundant pumps and an alarm system are a few keys to minimizing problems.

Sump Pumps

A sump pump collects and removes water from a home’s foundation in order to prevent flooding. In addition to preventing flooding in your home, sump pumps also reduce moisture and help prevent health hazards, protect your home from damage caused by leaky foundations can prevent costly foundation repairs. Regular maintenance, pump redundancy, trouble alarms or notifications and regular checkups help ensure your sump pump is working properly and extend the lifespan.

In summary, sump pumps and ejector pumps are both critical parts of a home’s water management system. They are located in the basement or crawlspace of your home and works to protect your house and foundation. The primary difference is that sewage ejector pumps primarily remove sewage and waste, while sump pumps remove water from the foundation and perimeter.
