I have a septic system, where the drain leaves the basement about four
feet above the floor.
There are a few reasons why I want a low drain. The two most prominent
are for installing a utility sink and a water softener.
The floor is 4-inch concrete.
What's the most practical route to go? Should I cut through the floor,
dig a hole, and put a sump pump at the bottom? Or just place a basin on
the floor with a pump?

Often this is because the destination is only a little less than four
feet above the floor. If this is the situation then a pump is the only
On the other hand if the destination is below floor level then I would
try to go that route. The final result is going to be more trouble free.
If you need a pump, buy the very best you can find.
Plumbing suppliers carry a product called a Drainosour just for your
purpose. Pretty much a covered plastic can with a sump pump in it, all ready
to go. Sounds better than busting out concrete and dugging a hole for a sump
