There are so many ways that this could be configured it would be futile for us to try to describe it without more information. I'd suggest that you post pictures of the setup that you currently have...Specifically where your drain exits the house to the sewer, and also the ejector pump. With that, I bet we can get it figured out.

I'd also suggest looking at the ejector/grinder pump's manufacturer's website. Many have schematics that will make your life a lot easier.

I don't have the pump yet, my drain exits the home right in front of the grinder crock, approx 6 ' off of floor height, vent is stubbed through upper floor a couple of inches down into basement. I understand basics of plumbing, however I can't seem to picture pumping solids up to drain and tying vent into it with out **** going into vent, so I need pic or explanation. Thanks

Here's a link to Grundfos' installation diagram. It might help you make some sense of how they vent.

Basically, the pump kicks on at a certain level, and the vent allows the solids/liquids to be displaced.

Just passing along, in my local area, its required to have two pumps when installing pump grinders, of course I don't know whats required for your area.
