Yup, the trap is on the discharge side of the pump. Went vertical and tied in over the top of the 3" drain with a 3x2 san tee. He was thinking!:thumbup:I going to ASSume that trap is on the discharge of the sump pump.:blink:
Did it tie into the bottom of the main drain?:laughing:
I spose that trap would hold the stink in the system. Kinda like a poor man's check valve
Of course check or no check. Sump pump to sanitary sewer is a no no here.
There is a problem with storm water that is discharged into the sanitary sewer overloading the treatment plants. Every time I run into one of these situations, I have to separate the pump discharge and pipe it to the outside.no problem here tieing in a sump on a sanitary, we do it all the time. I'd like to hear the reasoning on not allowing it.
another problem with that installation is no check valve, valve, or union on the dischage.
Cook county has combined sewers I believe. Us southern folks have sanitary sewer and storm sewer. Sump pumps/rain leaders go to storm. Our little poop treatment facilities can't handle the rainwater.What's preventing the sanitary from flooding the basement in the event of a main line backup?
Why can't you tie a sump pump into a sanitary sewer in IL. Killertoiletspider said in a previous thread that they run rain leaders into sanitary sewer all the time. So why not a sump then?
os cities around here, you have to get permission to tie it into the sewer.
