I have purchased a battery powered back-up sump pump for my sump pit (Basement Watchdog BWE), but was curious about installation. The current discharge pipe goes to a 90 immediately after the lid, check-valve on the way over to the wall, another 90 up the wall, and another 90 that leads straight out of the house (15-20 feet). All of the diagrams for installation have the PVC going straight up out of the sump pit (alleviating two 90s), but none like mine. Should I leave this and just put a Y and a 45 in the backup to connect to the current discharge against the wall? Should I reroute the existing so it looks similar to these diagrams?
Imaged attached, I think.
