    Default Ejector pumps & lines

    I rarely find ejector pumps and generally disclaim them along with a recommendation to have them regularly serviced. I searched the archives and got some good information, but did not find my question addressed.

    The discharge side line was ABS. ABS is the standard for DWV in Calif. However, I was under the impression that ABS is not designed for pressure, so shouldn't this be Sch. 40 PVC? Or, is it OK?

    Yes, yes... Needs a check valve and a gate valve.

    Say Gunnar. That could be a real mess to pop a line in a yard or even at the pump. I don't know what the pressure is coming out of these pumps.

    All the ones that you see set up by most plumbers are white pipe Sch. 40 PVC.

    I don't think there is that much pressure to damage ABS black pipe...

    Best

    They allow those receptacle outlets down there below where the water can fill up to?

    JP,

    Actually, it is a rotted plywood box. So, no problem.

    No alarm, either.
