Ok so I live in Maine, a little higher than sea level, there is what I am
assuming to be a sump pump pit in the basement of the house I just bought. It is
in a corner and the floor slopes that way, there's a square cover that is easily
removed, inside the hole is what looks to be quite a bit of gravel, and then 2
pipes, one running the width of the house, one running the length. Now first
off, I assumed that these drain pipes woulld be running out away from the house?
So I guess my first question is, is this a sump pump pit? And my second question
is, if it is, but there's no pump, can I run a dehumidifier hose down into one
of the pipes so that I don't have to keep emptying the darn thing?
