My sump pump is five and a half feet underground inside a 12 inch pipe. I have to make an electrical connection under ground. The cord on the pump is long enough to reach up to the surface and I plan to run pvc conduit from the garage for the connection. I am looking for a way to make a proper connection. Any ideas? The pipe enclosure for the pump goes into a plastic 55 gallon barrel that collects water from the french drain.
