2nd sump hole?

Posted by lurker3197 (My Page) on

Our house was built in 2000, and in the unfinished basement there are 2 hole (each about 2 ft in diameter). I know for sure that one is a sump hole (and it has a sump pump in it). I have no idea what the other hole is for. It doesn't have a pump in it.

Any ideas?

If there are rough drain openings in the floor for a future bathroom, it is probably for the ejector pump that will "lift" the waste up to the height of your sewer or septic inlet.

Yes, it is right where the rough-in for the bathroom stuff is. I hadn't thought of that, but we are below the grade of the septic tank. Thanks.
