What the fuck is it? Sewage pump? Why do you even need that and why wouldn't you have a spare?

its a effluent pump. the sewer main on our street is pressurized to get up and over a hill. so every house has a 100 gallon pit the house drops into. then that pump will grind and pressurize above 40-50psi to get it out into the city pressurized main.

I haven't seen anything like that around here. Lots of entire neighborhoods around here have holding tanks that get pumped out to the main lines but I've never seen a place where each individual house has their own. Interesting.

Bury the pipe under it taken to a city pumping station. Only sump pumps installed in my town are in houses that had the outer weeping tile fail.

I don’t think a homeowner owned sewage pump connected to city sewage would meet building code anywhere in Canada.

Sorry we have standards.

why not?
