How much space around a sump pump?


Our builder placed our sump pump under the basement stairs. The only entrance to it is through the unfinished basement bath. I would like to frame about 2' into that space for a linen closet. How much free space does the sump pump need around it?

You enough space to get to the sump pit, clean it (if necessary), service the pump and possibly replace the pump.

There are no code-based clearance requirements to a sump pump. The only thing that you need to do is maintain the pumps accessibility.
