My question is as you see in the picture that obviously a septic pump even though the electrical circuit is labeled "sump pump".. My question is about the floor drain-where does it drain to?
Can i run the hose from the dehumidifier to this drain??
Although it's usually against code, some people will drain their sump pumps to septic/sewer lines. That may be the case here. It's functional, but you're sending all that groundwater to the town to process as sewage.
And yes -- running the dehumidifier to the drain should work fine.
