draining bar sink into ejector pump

I am building a wet bar in my basement and need to drain the sink into an ejector pump. The ejector pump is in the slab and presently drains the bathroom toilet and sink. The lid to the ejector pump is bolted down and there are 2 pipes exiting the lid- one drains to the main stack and I assume the other is the vent. I have 1.5 inch PVC running from the bar sink and I need it to drain. Can I drain this through the lid into the ejector pump and if so, how do I do it? Does there need to be an air tight seal? Please help, thanks.

Welcome to our forums!

What you propose is not permitted by code where I am and I suspect this would also apply to you.

Because the lid needs to be sealed to prevent sewer gas escape you can not mess with it.
You also would not be permitted to hook up to the vent line.
You can check with the manufacturer of the tank to see if there are any approvals for this but I doubt it.
You would need to tap into the drain line that enters the tank from the existing appliances.

Check with your local plumbing inspector to see what he/she says.
