  • expert poop on sewage pumps

    Aloha Folks, My wife and I are purchasing a long rectangular acre of land north of Hilo, HI. It is required that we must hook up to the county sewage system. However, the spot where we would like to situate the house is about 250 feet away, and about 15 feet below the sewage line. (The land gently slopes downhill from the road). I would like to know the basics of sewage pumping to get an idea if it is realistic to situate the house away from the road and have our sewage wastes pumped up to the sewer line. We plan a two story house, and there will be two people living in the home with two bathrooms.

    Any advice or reference websites or literature would be most appreciated. We are into day two of our ten day inspection period on our purchase contract, so we must make a decision soon.

    Your best bet is to gravity the drainage system to within 100' of the county sewer. At that point you will need to install an ejector pump to take the sewage from that point into the main sewer.
