looking to install a larger diameter and deeper pit in my basement, in the existing location of my current pit.

anyone know a guy?

im not infront of it right now, but its small.. maybe 18" deep, and about 18" around.
and the drain tile enters the pit at the bottom of the pit, so my pump can never get all the water out of the tile.

You're handy, do it yourself.

Rent a jack hammer or a decent sds, buy some gravel and quickset along with a drop-in pit and you're good to go.

I used to do this crap years ago. Just get an electric jack hammer from Home Depot or something, break out the pit, dig for bigger diameter and/or deeper depth. Add some stone, and concrete and you can mix the concrete by hand or rent a mixer as well.
