looking for a method some what like a condensation return tank that pushes the return water back to the boiler with air pressure. This is for a sump pump system and i don't want to use electric power to do it if possible. I 'm sure there has to be a way to get the job done.

Use a double trap system. Once the water starts to dump from the second trap it will siphon. Remember the old tank type siphon urinals? We have even installed a small municipal sewer system using this method with a 12' head, and 240'+ of distance.

mandoman, you may also purchase what is called a hydrostatic water back up pump. It is used in lieu of a battery back up. More reliable. Zoeller sells one that is called a homeguard. I remove more battery back up pumps and install new water back up pumps.

Fed by an RPZ that is annually tested, of course.
