If it's a small pump which runs infrequently I don't see a problem. However,
the bathroom requires a GFCI outlet near the basin, and that has to be on it's
own 20 circuit.
Are any of the spaces in your panel able to accept tandem breakers? (Thats 2
circuits from one standard space.)
He didn't mention a bathroom outlet, and it can be with other bathroom
outlets, or lights to that bathroom.
If his sump pump ever runs, he would have to be pretty desperate to put it
on a circuit with all that other stuff. It is a really bad idea.
This is Turtle.
The number of outlets means very little but you need to get the power / amp
draw of the 9 outlets and see if 15 amp break fits. With out the watt or the
amps of the sump pump, lites, and bath room fan / light. you will know
Now if you run out of outlets in your breaker box. You can always use pippy
Back breakers and put two breakers in one slot.
But I have read that any basement room *with a closet* (if that is the
case with the OP) is deemed to be a bedroom (and therefore must have an
egress window) no matter what one calls it (and no matter what it is
called on the blueprint, even).
