Liberty Pumps Pro370 Basement Bathroom

I have a bathroom in the basement that the toilet is clogged. When I flush the toilet, the water level rises and if I use a plunger. Water will come out of the sink and bathtub. If I wait, the water level will go back down but slwoly. The bathroom downstairs uses a pump. I'm starting to think that the Pump stopped working but I want to be able to prove that? How would I know if the pump stopped working? Or, if something is clogged somewhere in the pipes? This type of pump system also has quicktree? and a Access Cover, but I'm curious if I open the Access Cover, what will I see? I'm worried if I open it, would it start leaking in any way? Any advice in troubleshooting or determining which or what may be the cause is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

At this point, opening the access cover is the last thing you do if it is below the water level in the pipes. Your system has a partial blockage in the pipes between the pump and external septic tanks or sewage dump site, that is the reason why when you use the plunger , half of the amount of waste water comes up to the sink and bathtub. You to open up your pipelines to remove blockage , probably tree roots in the pipes.

We have a basement bathroom. The bath drains away very slowly, but everything else seems fine - toilet and sink draining/flushing fine. Can we use a usual unblocker (eg sodium hydorchloride) to unblock?

I worked on a lot of Saniflo products, they do not recommend using any products that have bleach or chlorine. Make sure the flapper inside the side inlet where the bath drains, is not obstructed.

Sewage backs into the shower when the toilet is flushed

Obviously the drain line from your toilet to main drain out of the house ( used by upstairs ) has a blockage from your toilet line to "Y" in to main drain line. Depending on how it has been plumbed, there may be a clean-out between the 2 that can be used to remove the blockage. Your drain for shower is piped in to same line as toilet, thus when blocked at other end, overflows to shower. You can try some drain cleaner down shower drain if it will go. You might get lucky and release the blockage before plumber shows up .

My basement toilet pump runs constantly I have unplugged it till I contact a plummer; can i still use my two upstairs bathrooms in other words does any of the sewage up stairs flow through that bathroom...

Yes! If the system you are talking about has a tank behind the toilet, that tank only pumps out for that bathroom group. It pumps out with a 2" line into the existing gravity system. Your other batrooms are on that gravity system so you would be fine to use them. The only way there would be a problem is if the main sewer line out of the house is backed up. But you would be having problems if that were so (possibly the washing machine connection in the basement would be overflowing. Sound like the pump float in the small tank behind the toilet is hung up on somthing not allowing it to shut off. No need to get a plumber for that. Just remove the top of the small box and see why the float off of the pump is not shutting off. If has been installed for awhile (a few years) possibly the float contact could be gone and in that case a plumber would be the best bet to get a part needed. But save some $ and see if it is hung up on somthing (dried toilet paper) and clean it off and see if the pump stops when plugged in. If so you just fixed it yourself. If not then call the plumber. I'm a licensed plumber so I have a bit of background here.

My pump won't turn off

If the sump (where you catch the water) was dry, your pump might be air bound.

You say it will not shut off but you dont say if it is pumping. My guess it is is not. You have a local switch, i.e. integral to the pump, right? Not a float switch.

Do this, fill the sump, make sure the switch opening is clear (it works on water pressure) and make sure there is no air trapped inthe pump housing.

I hope this helps.

In my bar situation, I use a float switch and I pump up about 2 feet where the water goes into a stand pipe equipped with a vent. The stand pipe feeds into a hose and leads to a sump elsewhere in the basement where the water is pumped over the side (sorry, that was the sailor in me coming out).

Toilet problem! When it flushes the water rises way above normal before it empties. It does seem to flow out normally. It fills up to normal height but after awhile the water level is way down below...

We have just recently purchased one of the American standard cadet at home depot from a discount flyer and had it for about a day and took it back.

We Did not notice Any thing like a strong flush.


Home Depot sells a Kohler Toilet 1.6 Gallon Flush Install
This is all it said it was. It saves water for sure and has a quick flush.

We liked it so much we purchased two of them because everyone in the house only wanted to using our bathroom.

Hope this tip helps

Water backing up into my basement ejector pump during heavy rain

I have seen this problem several times before. The ejector pump should be in a separate crock in the ground by itself. Someone has installed it in the crock that is meant to pump out drain water. Probably the result of adding a bathroom in the basement. You need to bust another hole in the floor and install a separate crock to solve this problem correctly. If it just started happening go outside and look at he gutters to make sure water is running away from the house and not up against the foundation.

Please rate if this helps-
