A sewer ejector pump is the answer. The waster line is run into the sump basin, pumped through a checkvalve into  the sewer line that grades with gravity.  A vent pipe needs to be run also, (you can't pump out without replacing the air, it's like trying to suck air out of a bottle) If you add a high water alarm, which is a good idea. It is run off of a separate electrical breaker (insurance) to let you know if the pump isn't working before it's flood time.  The check valve makes sure, that what you pump out, stays out. Otherwise the pump will keep cycling.

How can we get rid of the occasional sewer smell in our house?

When you next get the smell, check the traps to see if there is enough water in there to fill the trap, if one is less then it looks like water is getting sucked out when toilet is flushed or that trap (usually bath or shower) hasn't had water going in (lack of use) and water has partially evaporated.

The Home Inspection

It's a good idea tomake a regular habit of taking a full inspection of home plumbing whether ornot service is required. Unfortunately, most homeowners think of this as anunnecessary drudgery they'd rather not do. Yet, numerous times, professional NC plumbers advise regular home inspections of plumbing be performed. Once achecklist is created, the follow-up inspections become easier. Put on yourplumber's cap and make notes of any changes such as small leaks or unusualmoisture in kitchen, bathroom or basement plumbing.

How would you minimise the riskto the elderly or infants when replacing an exsiting hand basin?

If you are referring to limiting the temperature of the hot water to prevent scalding, then a tempering or mixing valve can be plumbed in between the cold and hot water lines. This type of valve adds cold water to the hot water and it is adjustable.

It depends on the brand of the expansion joint you purchase. Ive found that they all differ in size and clamp location to some degree. So purchase the coupling first then measure the distance between clamps. Hope this helps.

I have a large whirlpool tub in MB on 1st floor. When letting water out of tub it is coming up in a large walk-in shower. The shower is draining fine...need answer! thanks

sounds like there may be some blockage in pipes. try to run a long snake through both drains or run all fixtures in bathroom and try plunging vigorously in tub and shower while running water. if nothing still, it may be possible that your underground plumbing is back graded or incorrect fittings and plumbing installation.
