    well 1st things 1st,are you on town sewer?if you are your sump should NOT be tied into the sanitary drain,the best way to pipe a sump is to the outside away from the foundation,contrary to what u may read u will not get a recycling effect of the water being pumped out,you are merely keeping the water level below the slab
