Hi Cathy,

It sounds like you are on the right track. There are many ways to do this, and the drain under the floor is an old standard. The pipe will almost automatically be deep enough because you are probably going to place it beneath the floor and slope it to flow to the sump.

My only caution is that this may not catch all the water if it is entering from all sides as well as up from the floor.
