Sewage ejector


I'm finishing my basement and I have installed a sewage ejector station. My question is on the discharge pipe. Does it have to go straight up? I would like to offset it by 12 inches before going up to meet with the main sewage stack. I've attached a photo of a mockup to show exactly what I would like to do. The check valve will be placed after the offset.

Keep in mind that I am not a plumber but do have an ejector pit in my own home. A 90 degree angle could be a little harsh. I would suggest two 45 degree angle joints and space them out a little. Certainly wouldn't matter if it was just for a washing machine but most likely not.

Re: Sewage ejector

that configuration will work fine,use 2" long sweep 90's,also you may as well install a 2" dandy clean out above the check valve,for 2-3 bucks it may help you out down the road
