Sump Pump

Posted by Dksmith (My Page) on

I installed a sump pump under my mobile home this summer. I secured the pipe coming from the sump to the steel beams. My wife complaines that she can hear and feel vibration through the floor. I have a 4 foot deep crawl space under my house which makes it easy to work under the house. My question is if I took the pipe from sump and dug a 1 foot trench to lay the pipe in and up the cement wall and out of the house would I have any problems doing it this way instead of having it attached to the steel beams. The water would have to come up from the pit down into the pipe and travel about 10 feet and then up about 5 feet out of the house. I have 1/2 HP sump pump.
