    Default Ejector Pit Connection Question

    Hello,

    I'm getting ready to install an ejector pit in my addition. The ejector will be used for a floor drain for now, but might have a bar sink in the near future.

    The ejector pits I have seen so far all come pre-drilled with ~4" whole in the side. What is the 'trick' to attach PVC in to an ejector pit? The whole does not see to be drilled, etc. Is there a special fitting to attach to a around catch basin?"

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Ask for a "Bulkhead" fitting at your local plumbing supply.

    I used a rubber bushing for mine.

    Thats pretty much what a bulkhead is, two flanges that thread together with a gasket between and have a hub for PVC.
