The first step to installing a sump pump is to find a location where the water collects. This location needs to be near a GFCI (Ground Fault Interrupter Outlet, pictured) for the sump pump to be plugged into. If you don't have a plug near the site, have a certified electrician install one.
Glue the male adapter to the PVC discharge pipe, then place into the female adapter on the pump. Using a 1/4 inch drill, make a hole into the discharge pipe six inches above the pump. This is called a weep hole, which allows water to flow back into the pump when it's turned off to keep it primed.
Attach the pumps electrical cord to the discharge pipe using wire ties. Install a check valve on the open end of the discharge pipe. Place the pump into the sump and prepare to run the water out of the house. Make sure you use a check valve that is made for vertical operation.
