Re: Soap Scum in Sewage Ejector Pit And Check Valve


Yodaman, I am flushing to the municipal sewer line and not a septic tank.

Re: Soap Scum in Sewage Ejector Pit And Check Valve


Thanks to all for your responses. The reason for my question is because I have had to remove the sealed cover, and go back in to correct an issue with the float not triggering the pump...again. Luckily, the high water alarm works. There was "crud" on the float and, while the float did rise with the water level, it would not trigger the pump. Once I removed the crud it seemed to work okay, although I will have to do more testing. While doing this job I examined the check valve because things didn't sound right (what does it mean when you know there might be a problem with your sewer ejection system because it doesn't "sound" right?) and discovered that the flap had been torn off and was just bouncing around within the valve. I have had to go into the sewer ejection system more times than I can count to adjust, fix, replace one thing or another and the system is only 11 years old. This thing seems like an accident waiting to happen. Other than a battery backup in case of power failure and a high water alarm in case of pump/switch failure, is there any way to make these systems safer? Thanks.
