Question ejector pump installation

Looking for information/tips on installation of ejector pump for bathroom in basement. Shower/Tub, Toilet and sink will be on the same wall with the ejector/basin on the other side. My questions are:

1) In venting these 3 fixtures, is the vent pipe from the ejector basin sufficient? In others words, all 3 will drain directly to basin, then vent from basin.

2) Is there a max distance from pump to sewer drain to run PVC?
I have 8 foot celing in basement then a horizontal run of 12' to sewer.

thank you

Answer::: Absolutely NOT, The sump pit must be vented alone out the roof at 2", can not tie with other vents and can not be used to vent other fixtures.


2) Is there a max distance from pump to sewer drain to run PVC?

Answer::: Not at all, just when to get this pump, make sure it's a sewage ejector pump, ask at a plumbing supply house, they will get you the correct size you need, tell them how far your pumping to.
