Many hands make light (or should that read "dry") work

As you may have read earlier, during that onslaught of rain, my home proved to me that it was lacking 1 vital thing — a sump pump.

 

So, I got one at Home Depot, brought it home, and got it working. Favoring expedience, I set it up to drain to the sink in the basement. The set up isn’t pretty, but it works.

 

I’m considering a more permanent solution. There is a plastic drain pipe much closer to the sump than the sink. I’d like to plumb it to that, but that is where reality sets in.

 

My only experience with plastic pipes involves running ethernet or electrical wires underground from a theatre to a bandshell.

 

I don’t know nothin’ ’bout pipin’ no water!

 

Any advice, or actual assistance would be greatly appreciated.
