Basement Living Space Is Possible

Plumbing Tools for Sink

The average American spends more than 30 percent of their income on housing. This means that every inch of available space is valuable. If you are looking for added living space, you may not have to look further than your basement.

When adding living space in your basement, you may wish to add a bathroom and/or laundry facilities. You may have been told this is a problem, but it is possible. This is not an easy DIY project, but professionals like Septic Service Pro will make it easy for you.

Adding Basement Plumbing

Plumbing normally uses gravity to remove waste from the home. Waste water from a shower falls down to the floor where the floor is sloped directing it to a drain. From there, pipes are installed at a downward slope to direct the waste water out of the home to either a septic system or municipal sewer lines.

When a plumbing fixture is installed below the main sewer or septic line exiting the house, pumps must be used to push the waste up to a place where gravity takes over. This pump is called a pump-up ejector system or sewage ejector pump.

How It Works

Ejector Pumps serve for both liquid and solid wastes and allows you to put plumbing in areas below the septic or sewer lines. A sewage ejector pump sits in a sump basin that is cut into the floor and placed below grade. Drain lines from the various plumbing fixtures are sloped down into the basin’s side. When the waste reaches a full line in the basin, a moveable float starts the pump. Waste is then pumped up to the septic line and the basin is emptied. When the float lowers to the bottom of the basin it shuts off the pump.

The installation of a vent for the pump is required to equalize pressure during pumping and to provide an outlet for sewer gasses. This vent may connect to an existing vent (soil) stack or run up and through the roof.

Septic Service Pro


Based on 117 reviews

Jim is a true professional who worked with me over months to identify and correct septic field problems. His positive attitude and helpful discussion in resolving issues is the best I found.


Mike and Shane came out and did an outstanding job on replacing our septic pump. Same day service - and they came out on a Friday evening! Mother's day would not have been very happy if they didn't save the day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!


We had our septic tank pumped and baffle tee replaced. The guys were on time, respectful and quick. They cleaned up very well after the job and even fluffed our pine straw to perfection!! We'd recommend these guys without hesitation.


Michael and Shane did an awesome job. Had to pump the septic,install a new baffle tee and tail out line. Very little yard displaced. Will definitely use Septic Service Pro again. Very pleased.


We live in Dawsonville. The crew that came out was very professional. The company owner explained to me the value and the many details about the septic that I did not know, that is why I chose them in the first place. Excellent service. R.McGary


Jim and his crew installed a new leech field for us quickly and professionally at a very reasonable cost. They handled all of the permitting and inspections and completed the work in a timely manner. Would recommend them to anyone.


Michael and assistant pointed out a leaking toilet that I didn't know I had (saved me $ there!). They also disturbed very little of the yard to get to the tank. Not the super cheapest but no hard upsell when they got here. Very pleased.


The team was efficient, friendly, knowledgeable and FAST to arrive. The bill was extremely reasonable for the work needed to be done. I would HIGHLY recommend Septic Service Pro.


These guys were amazing. Jim and Mike came when they said they would, did the job, explained everything they did. Very courteous,and professional. I am a handicapped person and felt extremely comfortable with them at my home. Thank you!!!!!
