  • Plumbing a Basement utility sink... no close drain line..?? PICS

    I am installing a utility sink in my basement and I will need to use a direct mount drain pump to drain the sink....

    My question is:
    Can I run a drain line up the concrete basement wall and in between the floor joists all the way down to my main drain for the house? (about 30')

    Any rules or codes I need to keep in mind?
    The yellow line in the pics is my thought of how to run the drain line.
    Thanks for any help!

    Are you getting rid of that ejector pit that is shown in the picture?

      I'd like to see what you have in mind for a basin and ejector pump.
      In this neck of the woods your sump basket needs a vent and
      a check valve will be nicer on the unit.
      The vent would only need to be 1 1/4" and could tie in with the house venting.
      Routing looks fine.Bring in your sump waste from above on a wye fitting.
      I am sure someone who is more in your 'hood can provide a better local
      code understanding!

        Based on the picture. That looks like a sump pump (storm). A laundry pump looks like the only option. Im from michigan and i would install a "shellback" (http://shellbackpump.com/) laundry pump and you can discharge it with 3/4" pvc / copper / pex. Just make sure you use a check valve!! Hope that helps you out. With that pump it is a "simple" job!
