I have an older bungalow in ottawa with a sump pit. We bought the house and realized the pump is hooked up to the floor drain, which I read is a no go. We had a company come in to set up our pump right. It was mentioned to us we have several options, but not really.
1. We can't expel it out of the house into the backyard. Our yard is only slight grade and the harder grade at the end toward neighbour. They said city won't let me pump that way, I'll send water to the right yard.
2. We have no storm hook up or drain visible in our unfinished basement so he can't run it there unless they dig up our yard to the road 10 to 12 grand minimum.
3. It stays the way it is and you don't mention it. That's how you bought the house.
Are these my only options? 12000 to a storm sewer or not properly to my floor drain???
Just trying to do it right so basmemt reno can start for a baby we are planning.
The pump pit is back left corner of our house.
There are two things you are over looking or are not aware of.
1. You can properly take out a permit and get an engineer to design a soak away pit.
2. Get three prices on running your sump to the city storm system. In B.C. a hole house is dug up and a new perimeter drainage system is installed for less than the numbers you have mentioned.
So, like they say about Doctors " get a second opinion" or price in this case.
