So the pump just dumps in there and leaves the top open? The only thing I worry about there is how long my discharge pipe runs. It goes about 2/3 of the way through my yard and into the storm drain. I'd hate for an animal or whatever get in there and clog it.
If you want the pad to last, it's a good idea to install mesh or rebar. If you might want to remove it, don't put any in.Trying to get a concrete guy to pour me a patio. He said I would have to bury my sump pump pipe.

Question for you all. Is it standard to reinforce a patio with wire mesh or anything like that? The guy I'm working with says it's only necessary if you want to put something heavy on it like a hot tub. Otherwise, the two inches of gravel and four inches of fiber reinforced concrete will be plenty. My dad won't stop asking me if they're going to put mesh or rebar in it. He thinks I'm making a bad decision. I'm kinda leaning on the professional concrete guy with about ten years worth of great online reviews. lol What do you think?
