Just bought a house - year built: 1885
Previous owner had a sump installed a few years ago, and the discharge pipe (PVC) had not been secured to the wall in any way, other than the hole going to the outside of the house.
I had a plumbing company out, and he secured the PVC pipe to the wall (not the ceiling) using J-hangers. I questioned this after I saw it, since I had assumed U clamps would be used. I'm concerned that this is not a best practice, so any thoughts would be appreciated.
Also, the discharge is currently being extended on the exterior part of the house using corrugated plastic flex pipe - any thoughts on how to extended the PVC further from the house using something that is more secured, yet removable for lawn maintenance/etc.?
