Punctured floor drain


Going thru inspection, inspector found floor drain pipe has been punctured to relieve hydrostatic pressure under floor slab. This does not comply with sewer district and county regulations to keep storm/sewer water separate. Is there something we can do ourselves to repair this?

Fix pipe and maybe install a sump pump and have it drain outside to keep ground/storm water seperate from regular sewer. Just a thought.

Best to ask the inspector he should know for sure.

Others will be along with more advice/suggestions.

Thank you for the responses! The largest part of the confusion was why this was done when we have a sump pump that works! So once we got the drain cover off we realized the Condensation Unit drain line was plumbed into the floor drain. Thank goodness we didn't have to rip up concrete! And that we didn't seal off that line!
