We have underpinned our basement and gone down 2 feet. The old main drain to the city sewer system is now above the basement floor level. How do we solve this and correctly reconnect to the main drain out?
That would likely be a bit of a chore. When you lowered the floor in the first place, why didn't you have that pipe taken care of? I would think that the contractor would have known about this - as well as the City who issued you the work permit . . .
Anyway, you will probably need to get a contractor with experience in this area to thoroughly asses you options and create a plan to address it. Also, I am sure the City will need to be informed as you will need a work permit.
