I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert

I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert the sump water currently discharging into the sanitary system to that of a storm water system. I have the following questions as I live in an area where the frost can be as deep as 42"1. does the uniform plumbing code allow for switching the sump water to the sanitary system when ground freezing occurs (where water is likely to freeze within the pipe)?2. Does the code define the depth required for the discharge pipe from the sump pump to the curb?

Second pic is what plumber claims is good and to be expected after his repair. What I don't have a picture of is the flow from the "mushroom cap" that result when the hose is disconnected.

Plumbers - The front load washer in our laundry room

Hi Plumbers -The front load washer in our laundry room produces a sewer-like smell somehow. It peaks during the rinse cycle, although I can smell it somewhat during the agitation. A hose comes out of the bottom of the washer, curls over an edge into our laundry tub where it can drain. I've covered up the tub drain with a stopper to see if the smell is coming from there, but that doesn't seem to get rid of it. Also, when I put my nose down into the tub, it doesn't appear to be the source of the smell. It's strongest in that room. There are no leaks that I can find, and I cannot locate exactly where the smell comes from.What is this?

I think I have a problem with my sump pump. It was

I think I have a problem with my sump pump. It was buzzing/humming this morning so I unplugged it and plugged it back in. That stopped the buzz, but the little bit of water that was in the crock was warm. Now tonight the water is still warm and when I put my hand in it its now very oily, but clear. Also there is a very oily smell in the basement. I have since unplugged the pump and NOT plugged it back in. I know I probably need a new pump, but is the oily water something I need to be converned about?
