What Is a Sewage Ejector Pump?
A sewage ejector pump moves solid and liquid waste from basement-level rooms to the disposal pipes and main sewer line on an upper level. It contains a float that signals to the pump when it needs to start ejecting sewage from basement-level pipes and turns off when the float touches the bottom of the tank.
Ejector pumps are commonly mistaken for sump pumps, which only transfer water, not waste. If your basement has flooded before, you’ll need both a sump pump and a sewage ejector pump.

Why Do I Need a Sewage Ejector Pump?
Without a sewage ejector pump, there will be no way for solid and liquid waste collected in belowground level bathrooms to move to ground-level main sewer lines. The force of gravity transfers waste in homes without basements. Sewage ejector pumps are necessary for basement-level sewage pipes to avoid bursting with excess sewage.
