Where can I get information on routing my sump pump line underground?

I want to put a paver patio where my sump line comes out so I'd like to do something to route the line underground.

I live in Michigan. Thanks

I will give you just one piece of advice. Don't run the sump line under the pavers if you live in Michigan. I live in Minnesota. If your sump turns on in the winter, your line will fill with water. Then line will then freeze and break, the next time the pump kicks on, you will have a basement full of water. Seen it happen.

If you are going to put in a paver patio, run the sump line inside the house away from the patio keeping it warm, till you reach an outside that slopes away from the house. You never want to have a sump line, with more than a foot outside the house in a cold climate.

Good Luck
