Grinder pump venting
 
can anyone provide me with a picture of how to properly tie vent line , to grinder pump? new basement bath, need to install pump, not sure how to tie 2" vent line into pump line so as to not have waste pushed into vent. also do I need a back flow valve? thanks

It should have it's own vent separate coming off the pit and vent to outside on it's own. Two line out the pit, one is vent other is discharge.

Did you read the directions that came with the pump setup?

Your pumped line should have a check and shut off valve installed above tank. So when you need to change out your pump you can shut off your valve and your check will hold back all of the fun stuff in your discharge line.
Run your vent to any of your vents upstairs, not to your drain discharge.

I don't have the pump yet. so no direction reading. the house was built5 yrs. ago and set up for this . vent is stubbed through the floor, I need to bring it down to pump, just not sure of correct way.
