I would like to install a sump pit and pump in my house, I have a few questions and would like to get some answers before I waste to much time thinking about it.
I have an old house, built in about 1889. Needless to say that running water was not in wide use around here back then. The house used to have a septic system but the previous owner had problems and totally unhooked it and installed pipes to hook up the house to the city sewer system.
The pipe that runs to the sewer is 3 inches up the wall in the basement. This is a problem. The sink, toilet, and tub are installed on plywood and 2x6's about 6 inches above the floor. I would like to one day build a bedroom where this whole pipe is. I know I will probably have to tear up the floor and do some other things, but first I would like to know if this can even be done?
I would like to drain the entire house into this pit if at all possible.
