You can hear it. It's not loud but you know it's working. No electricity? Shovel and a bucket?

You're going to need a circuit for the pump and a different one for running the bathroom lights/recepts.

Thanks, Andy,
It wasn't too difficult. It was high enough for me to have it go around the room and still have the required slope. The hardest thing was joining the last 2 pieces of pipe. If I ever have to do that sort of thing again, I'll use a fernco coupler. That's what they're made for. I didn't know. It was my first attempt at plumbing.

perpetual98,
When the house was built, I told the builder that I wanted to be able to put in an 8' high drop ceiling. After seeing how high the joists are (9'), we decided to go with drywall. It doesn't feel like a basement.

Andy,
I forgot about these 2 pictures. In the first one, you can see the pipe that exits the house. Imagine it going up and directly to the left as opposed to going back towards the right. The second picture shows it going around the top of the shower area.

zel,
Looking at the top left of the second picture, you can see the stub where the pumped waste will connect with the main. The lower pipe is part of the venting system.

Bathroom looks great. I also have one of these setups with an ejector pump in the basement. I was wondering more about your vent. In mine, the bathroom rough-in is a 8x5 room about 8 feet away from sump and ejector pump. The ejector pump has a vent, which I was thinking I would have to tie the sinks vent into.

How does your sink vent or is everything wet vented because your so close to the ejector pump?

Thanks,
Bryan

I tied them all together. Sorry, I don't have another picture handy but I think I can explain it. If you look at the earlier photo that shows the ejector basin, you'll see a horizontal pipe. That's the drain for the sink. It goes around the shower to the hole in the floor. Now look at the second picture above, note the far right of the vent. It goes vertically from the hole in the floor around the shower into the closet on the left.

Now, look in the picture with the ladder. In the closet, you will see a vent from the left side, just under the bottom of the drywall. I joined those 2 pipes, the one coming out of the basin and the one that goes through the roof using a cross fitting.

Thank you.

Both doors are from HD. The entrance is a "pre-hung". The closet is a 24" bifold. I built the jamb for it.
