A sump pump requires plumbing in a discharge pipe. This pipe will run from the sump pump, up and through the wall of your foundation, into an exterior drain, and then across your lawn to a dry well or your municipal storm drain. The piping must have the proper pitch to drain effectively. Furthermore, a check valve must be installed in the piping to prevent the pumped water from returning to the sump pump at the end of a pumping cycle.
