I do like your show!
I was told you could get pump that would use your utility water source to run your back up sump pump to work when the other electricity goes out. I have been very dissatisfied with the battery typ. Batter are costly !!!!!!
I have installed several of these units and we run all kinds of things into them from sinks, washers and showers to a.c. and dehumidifier lines. The pumps we use are real work horses and they can handle a lot. Make sure you do talk to your local basement systems supplier first to insure you have the correct size pump to handle the extra water.
OK looks wonderful but how much $$$$$? did that cost ???
how much are the polyethylene panels ????????????
The Mayan Indians taught us how to handle drainage many years ago, and this is a sample from their knowledge. However they did not have electrical pumps, nor did they need them.
Many houses years ago, even today, are not prepared properly with outside foundation sealant, (also sealant mixed into the cement, when mixing), and drainage rock and pipes to alleviate this problem from happening in the first place. This is a great video on how to do, or have it done, properly after the fact.Thanks Ron!
You could probably drain the washing machine into the sump are and have it pumped out. Beyond that I'm sure it would be some trial and error figuring out the utility of the sump unit.

Can you connect anything else to those pumps such as washing machine or sink unit? Would be handy if it coulod be used for more things since its so big then you wouldnt use a macerator.
