whats the best way laundry sink drain issue
 
I only have a kitchen sink and 2 bathroom sinks to use to wash hands etc . im about to remodel my kitchen and wont be using that sink anymore after its done , only for dishes . I want to put a utility sink in the basement laundry room for cleaning hands etc after getting dirty hands from yard work vehicle work .

problem is my main sewer line to the ceptic tank is about 4 feet high and a normal sink drainwould be 2-3 feet lower that that . is it ok to drain water into a catch basin then have a sump pump pump it up to the main sewer pipe maybe use a back flow stopper . maybe just pump it outside instead ?

For a 'remote' sink like that---the simplest and cheapest way to drain it is to use a pump box----this will lift the sewage up to your drain system----the units are easy enough to install---

Code calls for a hard piped vent for the box----that can be an issue----an AAV is not designed to work with a sump pump---

As a seldom used scrub sink----let your conscience be your guide as to code---just be aware that the thing will be looked at by an inspector when you sell the place--Mike---

ive only seen the systems meant for toilets and never seen that one , looks like the easy way to do it .

If you plan for it to work for a while, I'd use a better pump system. Use a brand name like Liberty or Zoeller. Search "Liberty 404"
