sewage evacuation pump replacement?
 
:(How do you replace the pump? Problems to look for? Steps in the process?

Replace it as you would a normal sump pump. Make sure you keep all the seals on your sump lid in good shape. If there is a ball valve on the discharge shut it off first. Unplug the pump second. Otherwise you may get a feces shower...

Use the correct pump not a water sump. Use a grinder sump.

First of all, how do you know it needs to be replaced? Have you checked for blockages? Checked the float switches? Checked circuit breakers? GFI's?
