Pump Service

Sump pumps also known as ejector or pit pumps are designed to assist with forcing the water out to the main or city sewer line when there is an upward slope that make it difficult for water to travel up stream. In normal conditions, pipelines are typically designed with down grade in which the water can just travel with the help of gravity. Therefore, in an incident when waste water has to travel upwards installing a pump will be necessary.

It is not very common that ejector or sump pump problems is the last thing on anyones mind. Since these units usually require very little maintenance as long as the lift station is being serviced or cleaned on a timely manner pump failure is not very common.  Though, when these pumps stop working it is important to have them repaired or replaced immediately to avoid any overflows inside the lift station or the grease trap - interceptor.
