A Plumbing Rescue: Replacing a Misplaced Sump Pump with a Proper Sewage Ejection System

Hello again, and welcome to our blog! In this post, we’re excited to recount a recent project that demonstrates the importance of choosing the right plumbing professional and equipment. Our client’s experience involved an unfortunate mix-up involving a handyman posing as a general contractor, which led to the installation of an incorrect pump system. Let’s dive into the details of this plumbing rescue mission in Newnan.

The Challenge: An Incorrectly Installed Sump Pump

Our client’s ordeal began when they hired a handyman, who presented himself as a general contractor, to handle their plumbing needs. Specifically, they needed a sewage ejection system installed, including pipes, a sewage ejection pump, and a check valve. However, a critical mistake occurred during this installation. The handyman had mistakenly installed a rainwater sump pump instead of the appropriate sewage ejection pump designed for toilets and similar applications.

Initial Assessment: The Handyman’s Oversight

Upon inspection, it became clear that the recently installed rainwater sump pump was not fit for the intended purpose. While it may have worked for rainwater drainage, it was completely inadequate for the job of ejecting sewage and wastewater from toilets and other plumbing fixtures. Predictably, the pump had failed after only eight months of use, causing significant plumbing problems and inconveniences.

The Solution: A Professional Plumbing Intervention

To rectify this plumbing mishap, we commenced with a comprehensive plan:

  1. Removal of Incorrect Pump: We promptly removed the incorrect rainwater sump pump to eliminate further damage or complications.
  2. Selection of the Right Pump: After assessing the client’s needs and the property’s plumbing system, we selected and installed the appropriate sewage ejection pump, ensuring it met all the necessary specifications for wastewater handling.
  3. Proper Installation: With precision and expertise, we installed the new sewage ejection pump, complete with the essential check valve. This guarantee ensured efficient and reliable sewage disposal from all the plumbing fixtures.
  4. Ventilation Correction: Addressing another issue, we corrected the vent system, ensuring it met the necessary code requirements for proper ventilation and compliance.

Final Outcome: Proper Sewage Handling Restored

The result was a fully operational sewage ejection system that met the client’s requirements and functioned reliably. Correcting the previous installation error not only resolved the immediate plumbing issues but also prevented future complications and potential damage to the property.
