This is a question regarding the drainage pipes that go into a sump pit, (not the discharge line which comes from the pit and terminates outside).
With regards to this type of pipe, what is it supposed to be made of? Is it hard shell, abs, pvc or some kind of plastic or is it the same type of perforated pipe that comes in from around the foundation wall? (the perforated type with a sock around it). Also I am assuming it should be sloped into the sump pit?
A builder has assured me that the pipe is ok if it is the perforated type with the sock around it coming from the outside of the foundation walls. I though it was a hard plastic type that is connected to the perforated sock type. What kind of connections should be used in connecting the two different types of pipes if the builder is wrong?
