Should the outlet for the sump pit be routed through the basement wall via a sleeve that is inserted when the cement is wet (like the septic), or should it be routed up through the skirt and out the wall?
I would pipe the sump pump up and through the header joist then down into a 4" pipe outside. The sleeve method is poor because if the line underground gets clogged or crushed the pumped water will have no place to go.Plus the sleeve can allow groundwater back into the cellar. Also make a pit big enough for two pumps. You'll have room for an emergency or backup pump if you need it.Good luck C.
A lot of water flowing into sump pit
