dischargw for sump pump


I'm installing a sump pump. Trying to decide if I should install a landscape outlet with an ice guard as recomended by basement systems or go with a drywell. It would seem discharging the water above ground may be an issue in the winter.

Ayuh,..

I guess it will depend on the lay of your land, the size you have to work with,+ how complicated, ei; Expensive you want to get...

A thought on the Drywell Idea,...
Make sure it's far enough away, so you're not pumping the water in a circle....
