    Hi

    in this pic you can see 3 pvc pipe, the big one is an access to the backwater valve, one is for the sanitary drain but the other i dont know, one hole inside seem to come from outside the house, maybe its for the drain at the footing outside ?

    thanks

    scuse my bad language im canadian :p

    Those pipes are ABS (black) and my guess is there cleanouts for the system.

    on this pic you can see one of the clean out, but what im asking is what the hole on the left can be, its very near my wall and look like its coming from the outside, maybe its my drain(french drain or weeping tile) connected to a storm sewer, it would be logic since its not wet cause its -30 c here, i can confirm its not the sanitary drain

    Your last photo looks like it could be a floor drain with float valve so water won't back up into the basement. The clean outs can be tested with flush of a toilet, with the lid off you will hear it. The other one will be a clean out for the floor drain, I'm guessing!
