Sewage sump pump


Bugger conked out on me .....luck I noticed the downstairs toilet was not flushing right. Pulled the pump out of the pit today.....Yes, it was a ****ty job. Actually, we have made a habit of just doing the #1 down there, plus the water from the clothes washer more or less waters it down a lot...till stinks though...The float part of the pump is working, but motor wont start. Going to price a new pump in the morning.

That's one reason I say I'll never have a house with a basement, or downstairs (below grade) plumbing. I've had the (un)pleasure of having to replace a few of the things, not to mention the industrial sumps I was tasked with maintaining. I know that sort of construction is common in much of the world, but I seem to have gotten my antipathy for it from my southwestern roots; out here in the "shaky side", sub-grade plumbing is rare, as are basements and cellars. Hope it goes with no hitches, and lasts for a long time.  But, look on the bright side; it's not a sewer lift pump serving several hundred businesses and residences.  We had a transformer in a lift station blow up one time, and it took the station down.  We had about six hours to get the thing back on line; it was a tight race, but we made it with about a half hour to spare.  There was a guy from the sanitation district monitoring the pool, and every so often, one of our crew would go down there to check on the situation.  Uuuuuughhh.
