I inspected a home in the country the other day which had an electric sewage pump in the basement. Two bathroom drains dumped into a common line which then dumped into a sealed tank. Coming out of the tank was a waste line which was sloped upward, exiting the outside wall to the outside, where I believe it went to the septic tank. I assume the pump was in the bottom of this tank as wires when in through a sealed cover. Has anyone ever run across this type of a waste disposal system? What are some things to check as to its proper operation. Any idea of frequency of pumping i.e. every flush? I can’t be in both places at the same time and the house is unoccupied.
