In response to Re: Basement ejection sump requirements
:
: 1. The kitchen has a two inch vent thru the roof. Can I use a "Y" pipe and tap into this
: vent above where the sink is to avoid cutting another hole in the roof ?

: 2. The kitchen has a two inch drain line that runs for about 25 ft to the main line. Can I
: use a "Y" pipe to tap into this line for the injection pump or would it be better to run a seperate
: 3" line. The house is a walkout basement on a lake that has a washer, dishwasher, kitchen sink, and
: full bath dumping into the sump.

: Thanks

you can tie into the 2" vent on the kit sink useing a 2" san tee but if you are measuring the out side of the pipe it's only 1/1/2" pipe inside diameter.most kit sinks are vented with 1/1/2" pipe. the wye should be put in a 4" pipe but will work if you only have 3".if you have to follow your local code you better check with them.if not good luck in your project.Dale
