Can you take it apart if you need to? I used slip-thread elbow's so i could unscrew the down pipe, this way i can remove the sump if needed.

Is that your input from overflow and the return from the pump side by side? If I'm not mistaken they should be at opposite ends of the sump do water flows across. If they are side by side then you defeat the purpose of having a sump.

I would have skipped the ball valve. It's unnecessary.

Yeah I can sort of take it apart, I can unscrew the one side of the ball valve if I need to remove the sump, I'll probably upgrade the sump later on down the road to a bigger one.

The return pipe isn't in yet, the pipe with the ball valve is the pipe that drains the water from the dt into the sump the other is incase that first pipe gets blocked it can still drain the dt. Or am I wrong? Lol

I thought I needed one? When I upgrade the sump I could take it out then if it's not needed.
