Can I tie my basement sump into my septic?
I just dug up my foundation this weekend, waterproofed it, and installed much-needed weeping tile. My basement had a sump and a pump out, but it was pretty useless without weeping tile - it just evacuated the immediate area but didn't keep the floor dry. Anyways, rather than have a separate pump out for the sump can I tie my sump pump into my septic line with a check valve? I live on 20 acres and my septic system consists of 2 tanks and a pump out about 100 yards into the field. I know you can't do this on a municipal system due to volume, but is there any reason I can't do it with a septic system??
