there is a sump pump in my basement. It was installed only a few years ago- the floor was dug up, drain tiles laid, etc. only one wall and a partial of an attached wall are connected to this. (apparently there was some water infiltration and someone thought this would fix the problem).
there is NEVER any water in the pit. Whatever water there may have been in the basement it must have come in in another manor ?
Anyway- my question is do I have to do anything special to remove the pump ? I know taking the pump out is easy, but do I need to cap off the drain tile thingies (ya know- the round black plastic stuff-lol)
The pump never runs, there is never any water in the pit. The drain to the outside of the house is a terrible eyesore- right out the front of the houes several inches from groound level and then about a dozen feet into the yard.
I would really prefer to just demo the whole thing.
