In a lot of towns, like mine for example, it is illegal to pump your sump pump water back into your storm sewer (aka drain on the basement floor). I would run at least a 1 1/2" PVC discharge line out of your house and then connect some flexible tube or piping to that to carry it further away from your house.

Need to run spin cycle only

No, the instructions comes from a programmed chip in the logic board. You can only do spin only if there is a spin only program. You can drop the hose into a large pail after it has done the main pump out. You could also set up an above ground 'sump' and a sump pump with level switch that cuts the power to the washer in the event that the sump pump fails.

Sump Pump Ejector line (outside) freezes.

IF the drain on the outside of the home is in the ground and is not below the freeze / frost line, it needs to be changed. If the drain is above ground at any point it needs to be unhooked at the point it exits the structure and diverted to the ground with an elbow. A splash diverter would be placed under the elbow.

How durable is the comet pumps ?

From my experience they are very durable! I have two pressure washers, and two sump pumps that I have built using these pumps and they hold up to hard use.

The sump pumps are used for draining flooded basement and also new foundation pours flooding. So they have had some hard use. I am in the process of building a sump pump for my daughters swimming pool using their pump also.

One CON - make sure you COMPLETELY drain them in freezing weather AND blow air through them to completely dry them.

Pump support

Follow these steps to replace a malfunctioning sump pump. If you are starting from scratch and want to put in a completely new sump pump and drain line, you should have a professional plumber do any actual piping unless you have an advaced knowledge of those techniques. Locate the sump pump in your basement. Unplug it to avoid possible electrical shock or personal injury. Find the place to disconnect the pump from the drain line. This is usually either a screw-together type union or a rubber coupling with hose-clamp fastenings. Both are quickly and easily undone. Remove the pump from the pit and allow it to drain for a few minutes. Any plastic piping or fittings that comes from the water outlet opening and goes up to where the pump connected to the drain line needs to be removed and saved to reattach to the new pump. Take the pump with you to your local hardware store, plumbing-supply house or home-improvement center. They can help you pick a replacement that requires the same power source and provides the same drain-line hookups and pumping capabilites. Reattach any piping and fittings in the same way that they were on the old pump. Set the new pump in the pit and reconnect the union. Plug in the pump. You can test the pump by filling the sump pit with buckets of water.

Installing a Washer in basement

The top of the drain pipe that the washing machine drains in to should be about 3 feet off the ground. If the sewer pipe is higher than that you can either get a longer hose, or drain it into a sump with a sump pump that pumps it into the sewer pipe. If you don't have a sump, first try the longer hose and make sure it drains to a point higher than the sewer pipe (that would be the easiest) or cut a hole in your floor and put in a sump and sump pump (the most difficult).

Vertical draining

Water only runs down hill. To accomplish your task you would need a small condensate pump to get the vertical lift to transfer to your sump. as an example ",,CLI1_DIV32_ETI3740,00.html"
