What size is sump pump discharge pipe?

What size is sump pump discharge pipe?

Most sump pumps have a built-in fitting for a certain sized discharge pipe, typically 1.25” or 1.5” inside diameter. (Because most sump pump discharge pipe is PVC, determining interior diameter is important. These pipes will be closer to 1.5” and 2” on the outside respectively.)

How many gallons of water does a sump pump discharge?

Once the water-powered sump pump is activated, 1 gallon of city water will flow through the pump and draw out 2 gallons from the sump, discharging a total of 3 gallons outside the home.

Does my sump pump need a weep hole?

Sump pumps need Weep Holes (relief holes) in order to prevent air locking the impeller chamber. This is important because it allows air to bleed out of the interior of the pump that would normally keep the next cycles from starting. No, but why shorten the life of your pump!

What should the off level of a sump pit be?

Divide the minimum storage volume over the cross section area of the pit to get the storage height required between on and off levels. The off level should be high enough to submerge the discharge pipe of the submersible pump (25 cm is commonly enough).

Where does the water go after a sump pump discharge?

The short answer is – far enough that the water does not run back into the sump pit. This can be accomplished by “shooting grades” in your discharge area to determine at what pint in your yard water runs away from, rather than towards, the home.

How big is a Liberty submersible sump pump?

Topped-off with a Quick-connect power cord and Liberty’s VMF switch (model 457) the 450-Series offers a superior value in a 1/2 hp pump. With a shut-off head of 37 feet and 3/4″ solids-handling capability, the 280-Series by Liberty covers a wide-range of low-head to mid-range pump applications.

How deep should a discharge line be for a sump pump?

The answer depends on how deep the frost line is in your area. The ideal depth is at or below the frost line. Unfortunately in our area, that depths is 5 feet and most lots don’t allow for that kind of depth when installing an underground discharge line.

What happens when water comes out of sump pit?

The temperature of the discharge water coming out of your sump pit will be well above freezing but as it travels down the underground discharge pie, it cools down and if it doesn’t get far enough before freezing, your discharge line will plug up with ice.
