How Does This Equipment Work?
As a homeowner, you tend to learn a lot of new things that you didn't before you had a home. When it comes to having flooding in your basement, it's likely you're going to need to have a sump pump installed by the knowledgeable technicians at Robert Bair. To help you better understand how this system works, we're going to break it down for you below.
Ejector pumps are solely utilized to move water from a septic or sewer system. This pit will be sealed with a cover. You'll notice that it will have a vent pipe along with it to move the unwanted gases from the wastewater outside of your home. This type of system is installed when a bathroom, laundry room, or similar wet room is installed below the existing home piping system.
Sump pump is a type of system is used to remove both grey water and flood water from inside of your home. These are typically installed in the basement, where flooding is more likely to happen. The sump pump will pump this unwanted water outside to your ground bubbler system, french drain, or your yard. These systems are installed in the ground and covered.
While both sump pumps and ejector pumps utilize a wall receptacle to operate normally, they do need battery backups. This is so that the pumps can continue to work in the event of a power outage.
