The crew finishes up the pit ground work for installing the residential sewage ejector for a 1,750 square foot ranch home. The ejector is ready to be installed for the septic system required in rural areas.
Plumbing installed under a concrete slab is required to have a ejector pit to lift up sewage to a gravity drain pipe above. Some septic systems can gravity flow under basement floors. At Smith Bros Plumbing and Septic we can help you determine that.
A sewer drain line is shown properly installed and embedded in sand to function properly in sending sewage from the home to the septic system. This insures that after back fill is done on the home. There will be no damage to the pipe that was installed. If more than thirty feet of pipe is installed the pipe will be covered with insulation to prevent freezing.
