How Much Does an Ejector Pump Cost?

An ejector pump allows waste water in your home, commonly in the basement, to reach the main drainage line.  Waste water is normally circulated through your home using mostly gravity, but if you have a basement inside your home, more than just gravity may be necessary to move this waste “up.”

The ejector pump is a mechanical device that pumps the water through the pipes when gravity is not enough, and this piece of equipment is usually placed in basements where the main pipelines are below the main sewer or septic lines.  If you are planning to have a laundry room or bathroom in your basement, it is likely that you will need to have an ejector pump installed.
