Ejector Pump Services in Elgin & Chicagoland
Do you need an ejector pump? Of the various aftermarket plumbing upgrades you can make to your home, a professionally installed ejector pump is one of the most effective. If you have any plumbing in your basement, you may need an ejector pump to make sure that wastewater is effectively transported into the main sewer line.
That's precisely what an ejector pump does.
Although it may appear that an ejector pump is similar to a sump pump, there are a number of differences, and these two systems work well in tandem. At Lifeline Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, our Elgin plumbing technicians offer comprehensive ejector pump services in the Fox Valley and Chicagoland area, including:
- Ejector pump installation
- Ejector pump repair
- Ejector pump maintenance
When it comes to the removal of wastewater, you need to make sure that your home stays hygienic and odor-free, and your plumbing remains effective and efficient.
What Does an Ejector Pump Do?
There is some confusion about the distinction between sump pumps and ejector pumps. It's not hard to see why.
Both pumps are installed in the basement, and both are responsible for moving water against the flow of gravity away from the home. However, unlike a sump pump, an ejector pump is not responsible for removing incoming water from your basement or crawlspace, but rather designed to "eject" wastewater from your bathroom plumbing fixtures, including toilets and washing machines.
This is necessary when such fixtures are below the connection between the drainpipes and the sewer line. For a system reliant on gravity alone, the pump provides a much-needed boost.
Ejector Pump Installation Services
A poorly installed pump can lead to foul odors, backflow, and clogged drainpipes. When it comes to the disposal of wastewater, only entrust your home to a professional.

Ejector Pump Repair Services
Like any other part of your plumbing system, your ejector pump will require professional attention at some point. So long as you had your pump installed by a professional, it should give you years of good service. However, if you notice it's beginning to fail or works only intermittently, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.
