ELBOW PIPE CONNECTOR IS CRACKEDSUMP PUMP DISCHARGE PIPEI just bought a house and now discovered the sump pump extended discharge pipe is broken at the elbow going out the basement wall about 5 feet from floor. Can you help with suggestion to repair? I saw a sump pump discharge hose on a YouTube video; do you think I could change out/replace the 5' pvc pipe for a sump pump discharge hose?

  • Some photos of the problem maybe ... ? – brhans Jan 28 at 18:19

  • Hi all - I just uploaded a couple photos of my sump pump discharge pipe that somehow got broken at the elbow connecting to discharge exit – LynieG Jan 29 at 14:47
  • Is that a concrete wall which the pipe runs into at the top, or would you be able to open it up a little to get access to a little more of the pipework behind the wall? – brhans Jan 29 at 17:51

Cut the pipe in half and put a cuppling on it.
