What is that sleeve-like adapter I've seen people use in their sump pump discharge?

Probably a check valve. A must have, never install a sump pump discharge without an in-line check valve.

Not to change the topic, but never seems like a long time. If you've a short upwards length on the discharge (say 12'') and then a downwards slope, why install a check valve?

Are you referring to a Fernco coupling?

Always install a check valve on the discharge. Even with a short rise it will reduce wear on the pump. It also creates a barrier to critters trying to move through the line in to your house.

But as I often point out, when your pump wears out and you need someone to change it out feel free to call one of us plumbers. We like the money.

May well be a sump pump silencer or "soft close" check valve-prevents loud thud with valve closure.
