Basement Basin, Pump and Sewage Piping Question


Well first of all the 24" Lid is broken. Basin brand is Jackel (SPF 24x36) .

I am looking to replace the pump (It works but why not while i'm down there) and get a new lid. I'm going to have to caulk the new lid in place as all the bolts are rusted off.

Pump is a Zoeller M267 ~ $300
Some people recommended Tramco 400S and some recommends Weil.
These pumps sit above the basin, whereas the Zoeller sits inside.



My question is if my proposed design will work. I want to be able to slide the lid off easily to access the pump for maintenance/replacement.



I'm reading some sources say to install the check valves horizontally. My proposed design would not work if that is the best way. Called Jackel about the check valves and the gentleman said I can install them either way but I'd still rather install it horizontally.

Looks like a grinder pit do the basement toilets go into it? If so it may smell a lot.

In fact it does.

I tried vacuuming what is left on the bottom with a wet vac = bad idea
whole house stinks now but luckily I have not moved in yet.

More problems

Basin is done. How could they put this POS in there knowing it will turn to crap like this.


I think put a new basin inside this one and put dirt all around it.

But then how would I connect the 3" sewage to it? Ugh... maybe it's time to call a plumber.

You need to purchase a grinder sump kit that includes the basin. It needs to have air tight seals even where the pipe enters into the basin. Otherwise that nice smell gets sucked up by your furnace and ends up all over. I would strongly suggest removing the old one entirely and replacing with a new one. This is not a standard sump pump for storm water basin.
