Does anyone see any problems with this?


Guys, this is a sump sink for under my basement bar. The two pipes coming out of the wall are a vent and waste line. The waste line pumps up and over the bar area to a ejector pit. Could you guys take a look at. This and comment if I did it right or wrong? I will still install a union on the vent side for easy removal of the pump for replacement. Does pitch of the pipes even matter being it is a pump and not relying on gravity? Any help would be appreciated.

Mike

You need a check valve and a full port valve on the outlet pipe

Thanks you for the quick reply, I guess I should have posted this also, I put a check valve right at the base of the unit, the instructions for install said install it as close as possible to the base.

By a full port valve will this work? I was going to install it in between the two 90's on the horizontal run there once the cabinets are in. Thank you again for the help.
