- Backflow and backup
- Improper installation
- Wrong size ejector pumps

About Ejector Pumps
Rivers Plumbing Heating & Cooling has been providing quality plumbing services to home and business owners in the St. Louis area since 2008. We are the area’s premier experts of ejector pumps and all of the work that goes with them.
Ejector pumps work on the concept of gravity: because your basement is located below ground level, where most waste pipes and plumbing pipes are located, the waste that flows through your basements bathroom needs help getting up to ground-level and out of your home. Ejector pumps assist with this process, routine the waste up and into your sewage system. Without an ejector pump—or if your ejector pump fails to operate properly—you can quickly and easily have a huge mess on your hands.
Because of the extremely unsanitary nature of this type of problem, it’s very important that you not only have an ejector installed for any bathroom in your basement, but also that it’s constantly in the best condition possible. Our professional plumbers can guarantee that we’ll keep your ejector pump working efficiently and effectively at all times.
Proper Ejector Pump Usage
One of the things that an ejector pump does is grind the waste into a more manageable consistency. This means that it’s very important that you never flush any non-toilet grade items down a toilet that uses an ejector pump. Items like paper towels, thick toilet paper, or other sanitary items not specifically produced for use in a toilet can cause your ejector pump to severely malfunction.
If you do encounter a problem because of a misuse of your ejector pump, call our plumbers immediately to have the problem dealt with before your toilet ends up flooding your basement. We offer 24/7 emergency repairs for any problems that can’t wait, and we’ll make sure to get your ejector pump back into working order as possible.
