One More Thing...

It bothers me that you described it as a "rotten egg" smell. If your house is heated by propane, you may have a leak between the tank and the house in the intermediate pressure line that runs in the ground. Propane is heavier than natural gas and tends to sink into the soil, even into the basement.
Another possible solution would be to vent your sealed sump pit up through the roof of the house. That would allow natural venting of the gasses (smell) and would have a side benefit of minimizing any radon buildup if you are worried about such things.
