  • Drain to insde septic holding tank

    I have a septic system and inside holding tank that is lower than the house exit to the septic system. There is a pump to move the waste up and out to the septic system. The kitchen and laundry room feed to a line that passes above the inside holding tank. There is an unside down U that the waste must pass over to get to the holding tank. This means that the line that passes the fluid from these two source is always full and never drains completely. Is this correct or should remove the U so the line can drain completely?
    Thanks in advance,

    I see your discharge line is to the right in that picture, and your saying the line your concerned about, that is coming from the laundry room and kitchen is to the right and is loop?

    Is that correct?

      One way or the other this is plumbed in wrong. The pipe on the right has to be the discharge line because it has a check valve on it, the green cubic thing. The line on the left with the upside down U almost looks like it is intended as a vent for the sump, however if you are saying that the (looks like)1.25" horizontal line that the U is attached to is full of water all the time and the water has to get up and over that U to get to the sump, then that U should not be there. But where does that 1.25" line go to on the right. Are there inlets in side the sump? More pictures?
