vent problem for sewage ejector

I intend to install a sewage ejector pump in the basement for
a new bathroom . The problem is the venting of the sewage
ejector. I intend to use a basin and cut into the concrete floor.
How can I connect the vent off the ejector pump assembly
to an existing vent that will allow for proper installation of the
new system? I cannot find a way to run a new vent up to the
roof. What other way is it possible to connect the vent? Thank
you for any help with this issue.

I cannot really offer much on this problem. In my area (KY) you are required to run an individual vent separate from the existing through the roof. They will not pass inspection otherwise. I believe code requires this for the reason in the event of a fixture backing up and draining into a vent. This would lead to the lowest point, a sewage ejector pit if installed incorrectly. Then you would have a situation where you are recycling waste matter through the piping and expelling through a nearby open drain.

Codes in your area may be different; check with your local authority to find out if you can tie into your existing vent system. I have to follow the rules to protect my license.
