Sump pump installation

Post by Paggles » Wed Aug 21, 2019 2:21 pm

How far from the basement concrete wall are does the footing extend. Need to know this in order to install sump pit. Video does include this info.
Also, can you recommend or give the kit name for the sump pump w/backup.
Are the pumps cast iron?

Generally your footing will extend 2-4” inside of concrete basement wall.
As for the pump I really can not remember the brand used in video. That info may have been given in the comments of the video at one time but I can’t say what it was off the top of my head.
the lower section of the pump I believe was PVC or something? Sorry it’s just been so long ago and I actually have not had to do another one since that.
