Any other options for sump pit?

pdogSeptember 8, 2011

I am looking for a few other options other than the traditional HD or Lowes 18x24 sump pit. I have seen this one called Grate Sump which is more of a box, but it looks like only certain contractors can purchase them, not the DIYer. (

My current pit which it pathetic (10.5"x10.5"x 15" deep) and it is really limiting my ability for pump selection. I want to install a dual AC setup along with my battery backup, so increasing the basin size is required.

Maybe I am just overlooking the standard pits, but the Grate Sump seems to allow water into it much quicker which is what I really need. I suppose enough holes drilled into the standard basin would work.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Found something for the DIYer that is similar. Need to do more research on this one though.
