Sump pump: 1 1/2 connection to 1 1/4 PVC pipe
I have to replace my sump pump. I notice that it currently has a Wayne 1/2 hp sump pump. (it was professionally installed 10+ years ago, I think.) Anyway, I plan to buy another Wayne 1/2 hp sump pump and do it myself. But I noticed that the PVC discharge pipe that was installed is 1 1/4 inch pipe. Yet the pump connection I see advertised is 1 1/2 inch. I am going to have to buy check valve, too. but my question is: will this work with 1 1/4 inch pipe? I sure don't want to have to replace that pipe if necessary.
and how do I make it work? what parts do I need to buy?
