Wondering if I have any options to put a drain into my shop when the
slope of the ground is uphill a couple of feet.
A sink would be about 80 feet away from the house where I could tap
into a basement sink drain. This line would need to run uphill a foot
or two in elevation before dropping into the basement sink drain line.
What are the options besides a 5 gallon bucket under the sink?
If the end is lower than the beginning, the in-between can go up hill as
long as it does not go higher than the beginning elevation. The up hill
travel would essentially work like a stretched out p-trap.
That said however, draining will be much slower and may clog more often.
There are various ejection pumps and sewage pumping systems available
for what you want. If you are only talking about liquid waste from
the sink, how about putting a small cheap sump pump into that 5 gallon
Mine goes from the J trap through the wall to the ground outside the
back of my shop. It's just water, with a little soap mixed in from
washing my hands. May not be legal but does no harm.
A man's got to know his limitations.
