The "an" is throwing me off as "sump pump" also came to my mind. Hmm.
I'll go with "sump pump".
"Sump"times up and "sump"times not so up ;)
I'll go with Wayne Martin answer
hooray - another one I knew
We have ejector pumps in some of our Baltimore basements.
Sump pump - and without help from Google!
Barbara Todaro - worked with some such homes with 'Ejector' pump!
Another learning experience today.
Known in my area as a lift pump
I knew this one. I had a house listed that had this.
We had to have one of these on our commercial building. As soon as a gravity feed came available we connected. The pump alarm was always having problems going out.
And I have no idea..seems I have to go through comments to find out:)
I got it but I was late.
They have really come a long way with toilets & such over the years.
Cool! I'm a fan of the "ejector seat" in a car which nullifies gravity quite nicely.
Darn. My answer would have been sump pump. I've never heard of an ejector pump. Is that more common in rural properties?
I would not have gotten the right answer.
A load of crap?
That was the first thing that came to my mind. I am all fired up today Barbara Todaro
Thank you Barbara for continuing to educate and keep us sharp !!
Learned something new
To SUMP it up I had never heard of an "EJECTOR PUMP" and here I are just a dumb ole contractor.
sump pump. Oops, I just saw your answer, did not know that one.
The proper name is called Lift Station pump. Barbara Todaro When I got out of school I reviewed the waste water design from developments. The elevation of the gravity sewers connections I caught them designed going up the hill and denied their permit application from sloppy design.
Some added a lift station and resubmit for correction. They also require to have standby power source (generator). Bad design contribute to local sewer back up and lawsuits. A few denied never resubmit for permit approval and operated anyway they wanted. Sears tower was one.
Looks like your diagram answered your question.
Hi Barbara. We have a number of various pump solutions in Florida for this.
Thanks for the name reminder.
Effluent "pump or system"?
Interesting....learning something new each day!
