Question

Sump Pump Drain


Had a device in my sump pump drain that resembles an Ice Guard. It allows water to flow should the 4" drain pipe become plugged or frozen. I hit it with the weedeater and need a replacement.

Ice Guard is a device of Basement Systems and they will not sell to an individual without them installing.

Does anyone know where to obtain a similar device?

You have any pictures of what it looks like and where it is located in your system?

Do Not have pictures. The device looked like a PVC reducer from 1.5" pipe to 4" pipe (PVC) that had walls between the pipes that were slotted. Thus if drain was plugged the discharge water from sump pump would flow out on the ground.
