Washer needs to tie into main line


I have an older 1960's era brick ranch house with basement that i just moved in to. The washer and dryer is downstairs in a dedicated laundry room. I have paid little attention to the plumbing in this room as other more pressing matters have crept up since purchase. the other day i noticied that the washer drains into a sump pump hole in my basement. The main line is about 3-4 feet above at chest level for me. It is PVC and appears to be part of a newer repair.

I do not know how to get the washer drain to go up into the main line out of the house. I know that a booster pump of some kind will be required but i don't know how to start. I do not know how to add onto the existing pipework or honestly where to start.

Below are some links to pictures of my situation

Saniflo makes a product that would be perfect for your situation, http://www.saniflo.ca/homeowners/sfa...-line/sanivite.

May I ask why your current set-up needs to be changed?

the sump pump drain is backed up and almost impossible to snake considering bends in the pipe and lack of outside access (???). The main line is nice and open with all the proper hook ups.

Thank you for your help, I'm going to look into the product you suggested.
