Frozen sump pump discarge
My sump pump is fine except for when the temp gets down to 15Â° for more than 2-3 days. At that time the pipe leading out of the house freezes. I have just replaced the hole drainage pipe which runs about 40 feet to a pit (old one never froze but was a mismash of pipes). I've tried electric pipe heating tape. Can anyone come up with a good idea on how to manage this?
I was thinking of creating a box on the outside of the house and stuffing with insulation, and adding a better pipe heater on the pipe inside the house which I would turn on when the temp starts to drop.
