Check out this hillbilly sump pit and pump. Owner simply bashed a hole in the slab, dug out some aggregate and clay, inserted a tupperware bin container with a cut out bottom and dropped the pump in. There are 2 lines coming into and spilling onto the aggegate and clay. First the area around and under the slab must get saturated (to what level I have no idea) then the bucket fills up and suprisingly the pump still works even after sucking out clay and silt! I would love to see what the slab will look like in a few years from now, after it washes out from underneath a bit more! Yeee Haaa!
