Where is this(state).
This looks more like a sump pump with a winter bypass. The Y fitting is upside down. In the summer it pumps outside and in the winter into the main sewer line.

It’s a grinder pump. They are used when dirty water or waste needs to be pumped up & out.

Did you see the main sewer going through a wall above the the floor level?

Is the laundry in the basement?
Is there a bathroom rough in?

That is correct. Around here they call them crock pumps or in the trade "Shi…t ejectors…LOL

Could be both, connection of exit drain pipe would say.

I have seen vented sumps like the picture.


:slight_smile:

That is very common around here in most new construction. At least for the past 10 years or so. I get asked on almost every inspection of a new or 10 yr or less home, “Jim, what is this”…:shock:

It looks like a vent coming out of the slab for a floor drain and the floor drain is going into the sump. Is there a condensing piece of equipment next to the water heater?

you are right, it would seem like alot of work to avoid a condensate pump, maybe the floor drain is also serving the floor …floor drain. There appears to be a 3" receiver about 2’ from the sump with 2 pipes draining into it. There may be a future bath roughed into the slab also.

Booster pump.

what is the result of reaching water to test sump pump?

Did an inspection a few days ago & found a good example of a fresh water sump next to a grinder sump.
