sump tied in with sink drain

I have a sump in a pit in the basement the line is tied in with the kitchen sink when the sump kicks on we have a sewer smell, it didnot do this until after we put in a new sink but we used existing plumbing any suggestions?? thanks Val

Re: sump tied in with sink drain

well 1st things 1st,are you on town sewer?if you are your sump should NOT be tied into the sanitary drain,the best way to pipe a sump is to the outside away from the foundation,contrary to what u may read u will not get a recycling effect of the water being pumped out,you are merely keeping the water level below the slab

no I am on a septic and I am only putting in the water from the dehumidifier and our air conditioner drains in it . thanks
