The sewage ejector pump in your business gathers all the waste from your plumbing fixtures. Maintaining this pump is essential for the overall health of your business’s plumbing system. But what if something goes wrong?
More often than not, you are going to want to contact a sewer ejector cleaning professional to get the job done right. However, there are a few things you can do to make sure your sewer ejection system remains clean and running properly.
Follow these three simple tips can actually prolong the life of your system.
Cleaning Tips for a Commercial Sewer Ejection System
Use a Trash Can
Flushing things like feminine products or wipes don’t seem like a big deal, but it can actually cause a ton of problems on your plumbing – such as a backup. Once a backup happens, portions of your interior plumbing are often destroyed and need to be replaced. To avoid any temptation it might be best to keep a small waste bin near the toilets so your customers and employees have somewhere to throw their waste.
Improve the Health of Your System
You don’t have to be a professional to take some precautions and maintain your pump. By simply flushing lemon juice down your toilets, you can significantly improve the health of your plumbing system by breaking up any existing clogs and cleaning out your pump. It can also help with eliminating any odors that sit in the grinder between flushes.
Smell the Vents
With sewer ejector pumps there will be a local vent installed that connects to the pit located on the outside of your home. If you feel there might be an issue, start by blocking the vent. This will trap any odors in the pit.
If you find there is an odor, call your plumber right away. Even if you feel something might be off with your plumbing it’s best to have it inspected before it can become a real problem. A professional plumber can resolve most issues before they become a bigger issue. Whether you’re having plumbing issues with your drains, need to fix a pipe that bursts, finding the right commercial plumber is the key to getting the job done right.
When is it Time to Contact a Commercial Plumbing Professional?
When was the last time you had your business’ system looked over? It is something that can easily be forgotten until a disaster happens – like a backup. Having a plumber check on your system annually can prevent an emergency visit that is usually costly. If your plumber finds any issues, they can get down deep in your system and remove anything that you might not have been able to clean out by yourself.
