I currently have a sump pump located in the corner of my basement. Outside the basement wall the land drops off approx. 6 to 8 ft at maybe 35 ft away from the foundation. Since the sump pump is fairly active and failure would be a real mess inside the basement, can a drain pipe be buried from the sump pump hole out to the low spot in the yard for continual drainage? Would there be any other issues to worry about?
The local building authority for your town would have to give you their blessing. It would be a shame to do all of that digging and have the building inspector make you dig it all up again. In theory your idea would work, however you would have to place some bars and screens inline to keep out any unwanted visitors.
