OK, I realize I should probably know this. Should the drain line for a sump pump have a bleed off hole, or weep hole, 6 inches or so from the pump itself? The last 2 days, I’ve had 2 sump pumps, and when I’m testing them, there’s a stream of water shooting out of the drain pipe back into the pit. Does this protect against freezing in the rest of the line or is this a defect? Discharge ultimately runs to back yard. Thanks for any answers. Sorry, no photos.
