    I want to put a utility sink in my basement. The only drain pipe is as in the attached photo.

    Can anyone point me to how they would add a drain up into that pipe?

    ie by adding pipe at end via cap, or cutting into 3" pipe that goes to left, or ?


    ... presuming I will have a sink with a flow-up pump and one-way valve etc.

    You will looking at something like this photo, notice the vents.

    You could install a pump for a sink instead the whole sump pictured above. You would tie into the horizontal copper line, not the clean out. The clean out needs to stay a clean out.

    Thank you both for the reply. If I understand correctly, I would cut the horizontal pipe to the left of the 'T' that the clean out port is on.

    Q1: Is there any videos that demonstrate this, that you are aware of?

    Q2: not sure how to run a vent pipe, or if it is necessary[?]

    Frodo, thanks for the reply.

    Any reason why you suggest the lower cleanout vs the upper one?
