Common Sewage and Wastewater System Problems

Like any mechanical device, sewage pumps can encounter problems that require repair or replacement, including:

  • Clogs

    Over time, debris and dirt can accumulate in the sump pit or ejector pump basin, leading to clogs. When this happens, your pump may not function properly.

  • Electrical Issues

    Sewage pumps rely on electricity to function, so issues with the electrical system can lead to failure.

  • Incorrect Installation

    It’s important to follow the installation instructions. Otherwise, debris will build up in all the wrong areas and interfere with the pump’s functioning.

  • Strange Sounds

    Banging and strange sounds often indicate a problem with the pump’s mechanical components or structure. If you hear these weird noises, contact plumbing professionals immediately.

  • Wrong Size

    An incorrect pump size may not perform its job effectively. If the pump is too big, it will be forced to work harder. On the other hand, if it’s too small, it may not pump wastewater efficiently.

  • Mechanical Failure

    The mechanical components of ejector sump pumps can wear down over time.

  • Overwhelmed Pump

    Heavy rain or flooding can cause a sewage pump to become overwhelmed, leading to potential failure or damage.

  • Dirty Water

    The primary purpose of having ejector and sump pumps is to filter water. If you are seeing dirty water, it may suggest that something isn’t right with your pump.

Frequently Asked Questions

Regularly inspecting your septic system is essential to ensure that it runs properly and efficiently. It is recommended that homeowners inspect their septic system at least once every three years or more frequently if they observe any signs of problems. This inspection should include a visual inspection of the tank, drain field, and other system components and a professional assessment to check for any blockages or other issues. By having your septic system inspected regularly, you can help prevent costly repairs and extend the life of your septic system.

Signs you might need service include unusual noises, visible water not draining properly, frequent clogging, or if the system is not turning on automatically. If you notice any of these issues, it's recommended to consult a professional for an evaluation.

With proper maintenance, sump pumps can last up to 10 years, while ejector pumps can last up to 15 years. The lifespan can vary based on the model, usage, and maintenance.
