Sump Pump Drain
Sump Pump can be plumbed into the main waste
pipe in my basement. My main drain is above the basement floor level, and the ground around my house is very rocky and hard and
does not drain well, its runs off on top to my neighbors house to his concrete driveway
I am worrried it may one day crack it
I have thought about a dry well but to dig it would take forever with the rock.
No, it really can't be 'tied in' to your Sewer System.
Sump Water is NOT 'waste water'. It's considered Storm Water, thus, is not to be tied into the Sewer System.
Now, what should you do? Get the Mfgr. and Model info on your current system and ctc. the Mfgr. and ask them how LooooonG your Drain Line can be. Also, measure the HEIGHT of the Sump Line (as it is now.) With that information, the Mfgr. should be able to tell you how high and LooonG your Drain Line can be. Perhaps you can run the line to the FRONT (or wherever) of the house. BUT, before you do anything else, do some measuring and ctc. the Mfgr.
My best to ya and hope this helps.
